A sunny day in Camps Bay which in itself is a gem in Cape Town. This restaurant had terrific food and wine. The kingclip was lovely and cooked to perfection as was the calamari. We all enjoyed a very friendly lunch getting to know some of our fellow diners. This place is informal but classy so I'd recommend this to... More

Went here because of the great reviews and sure it was good, just not that good. Starters were great but the steaks, which were quite expensive, were nothing to brag about. Nice atmosphere and great service.

Dinner is fantastic at this beachside spot, breakfast though is a whole different matter. You'll be thankful dinner is so good here because by the time you're breakfast arrives it will practically be dinner time.

This was the best food we ate out on our two week Cape Town trip, we had tempura prawns and seared tuna for starters, and a sushi selection for main - we are big sushi eaters/lovers, and we think this was very good, decent attention to detail, great texture and taste. The salad with the seared tuna was excellent. The... More

Thank you for your positive review, positive feedback is very encouraging and a motivation for us to keep our standards improving. We purchase fresh produce as far as possible and the recommendations made by the staff are usually speciality dishes which are not always available to us so they come at a premium price. Our seafood on the menu which... More

Our Waiter was excellent as was the food. The only criticism was it was a bit to dark to read the menus and see what we were eating. Worth a visit though

Had two meals at Paranga during our brief stay in Camps Bay. Fantastic position with stunning views of the beautiful Camps Bay Beach, and a great spot to see and be seen. Food was OK, but the vibe is the biggest drawcard here. Pretty décor and great background music - even bought one of their CDs to take home !

On two occassions in january this year we went to Paranga for drinks first and then for lunch. At drinks we requested to reserve a table for sundowners but we were told that no tables can be reserved in the front part of the restaurant. We left and came back for sundowners. There was an open table which we walked... More

Camps Bay is beautiful and this is a diamond. Sited on the promenade alongside many others, this the only one we ate in. We chose it because it was by far the busiest. This is always a good rule of thumb and again, it proved to be a good guide. Idoubt if there is any better restuarant in Camps Bay.... More

We had an evening meal here, I had the sole, my wife the beef fillet, followed by the malva pudding with a bottle of Springfield Wild Berry red wine. We didn't book but got the best table, just a bit elevated and back into the restaurant. It can get cool and breezy in the evenings so this was a good... More
