This restaurant was recommended to us by several people on our arrival in South Africa. The food was delicious,service was good and the wine was very reasonably priced. Our only complaint was the lighting in the restaurant which was very poor and we struggled to read the menu.The music also appeared to be on a "loop" and became very monotonous... More

Ideally located in Camps Bay, with a terrasse and also very cosy seating inside. Heating available in winter. Service is very relaxed. Waiter tells us the place is well know for fish and seafood but when we ask what fresh fish is available, we get told "none", except "maybe the salmon" but without big conviction. We are offered recommendations and... More

A great place for people and beach watching and taking in the Camps Bay vibe, particularly in good weather. Good food and good service and can't beat the location.

Great atmosphere! Nice place to watch the sunset! Service was a bit slow and our waitress messed up the orders a couple of times! But, we enjoyed our meals and the location!

Came here on the recommendation of our hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. Beautiful seafood to start and very tender fillet steaks. Not to mention the best Pina Colada I've ever had! If only it wasn't so far from the UK, I'd definitely drink here more often :)

We visited Paranga in December/Jan 13/14 twice as we thoroughly enjoyed the food- could not fault it. The steak and Pantagonia calamari was divine!! The chocolate ice cream desert was amazing!! So much so, we have made it at home a few times!! Loved it and will definitely go back there again!
