Liveley and noisy. Good seafood.

A cool restaurant serving good, mainly seafood, dishes in a stunningly attractive position right across the road from the beach. Restaurants line this portion of Victoria road, Paranga being the first as you turn left out of the Bay Hotel. It's always lively and crowded though service is efficient... read more

This place was extremely popular. Unable to book a table for Saturday evening and when we booked for Tuesday they were very busy too. Food good but there are equally good ones in camps bay.

I used Paranga' s website on Wednesday (early Feb) to book a table for Friday night. The reply email informed me that they could not confirm the booking at that time but a member of staff would contact me. I heard nothing and decided to phone them on Friday lunch. They knew nothing about my booking enquiry and had no... More

OK, I have been here before and it was good. This time, the service, the food and the ambience was fantastic. And I have to say, for an overseas visitor, for a change the cost was really on our side. Oysters, calamari, prawns, and delicious sushi started the first lunch the four of us had. Followed by beef, salads, duck....and... More

Food was good, but only restaurant in the block which was full and had to make a reservation for the following night. Food was good, selection, price all good. Two points, however, some of the tables were fairly cramped together ( it was an effort to have a private conversation at times) and if you are going there, ask for... More

We were given an amazing table overlooking the beach (on a raised platform) however the food did not live up to the view. It was perfectly nice but we had eaten in better cheaper restaurants in the area. would not return- sorry

Extremely well located. Great views of the bay. Service is warm and friendly but food takes long. This is not a grab and go place. Prices are reasonable for the quality.
