A good choice for dinner

Very good both the food (overall the tuna tartare with avo) and its presentation, the place is stylish and the service good too.It's not cheap, but you can enjoy a good dinner in a very nice atmosphere.

In our recent visit to Cape Town, we stayed in Camps Bay. We had the occasion to eat lunch at Paranga. It was so good that we went back for dinner a few days later. Paranga is located on the waterfront. Great views and great atmosphere. Terrific bar. We had wonderful salads for lunch and several extremely tasty fish selections... More

The fish and sushi are really great but I do not recommend the seafood platter, is to dry and full of butter cream. The place is nice with beautiful views and nice vibe, you will enjoy it.

Amazing views of Camps Bay beach strip, serves great food and offers excellent service. Was on holiday with my lady and she said the Piña colada is the best she's ever had.

Great spot, food was good but not amazing. Staff ok. Great place to go for a easy meal with friends or groups. This place trades on its location more than its food. But hey, it's Camps Bay, it's hard not to be impressed.

Nothing special besides the nice view. Had better mussels. Nothing special. I never ordered a plate of mussels that came with exactly twelve of them.

Great views and excellent location over looking the beach on Camps bay. Easy to sit here and watch the world go by. Let down by the qualifying of the food which I consider average. The location promises a lot but the. Quality of the food should be upgraded to meet the expectations of the location. I will be back and... More

This is the second time I have visited Cape Town, and the second time I have visited Paranga. Both times I had a great meal with a view over the ocean breaking on the beach and rocks with a subtle scent of the salt in the air. We had a lunch with fresh vegetables and tender meat. Dessert was a... More

Dinner with friends on a Friday night. Went in based on recommendations. Great appetizers - fish cakes, crawfish salad, tuna very good. Prawns and butternut squash salad tasty as well. Service is very good. Many good items to choose from. Reasonably priced. Great location on the waterfront.
