Having lived here a number of years and loved blues restaurant in it's day. However Camps Bay has always to me a tourist trap, over priced, over hyped and under whelming. Our visit to Paranga re enforced all of the above. It was a Birthday occasion but from arriving to leaving service was non existent, I had to get up... More

Paranga is perfect. For parties or just lunch with a friend. The food is fantastic as well as the service. Sitting in the sun, watching people on the beach was so relaxing.

The perfect spot for a long lunch whilst looking at the sea and watching the people wander past. The staff even watched our table and stuff whilst we walked on the beach before coffee.

A must when in Cape Town! Exquisite views and excellent food! Great wine list at decent prices. Great menu to choose from, but book in advance to get a good table out front for the full experience.

Pleasant staff, Clive very helpful. Seafood platter hard to fault if a bit pricy. Great position to watch the sunset. Many thanks

Pretty good food and drinks with a great view! Prices are reasonable (for the Camps Bay area) and not over expensive. Service can be a bit slow depending on time of the day.
