Place is full on regular basis, nevertheless we were able to get a table unannounced. Ok - we landed just next to the exit from the kitchen, still it was better than i expected. Very friendly staff, food is outstanding. Few comments though: - as it is with many restaurants, here too it was dark. No clue why but i... More

Paranga was a good experience but it didn't match our expectation for this price. We started with fresh oysters, then surf and turf, and mussels in thai style sauce (chili and coconut sauce) as mains. (Check my pics!) The oysters were very fresh and the surf and turf was good; the meat is tender and the prawn was tasty. But... More

Right on the main road, overlooking the beach. We ate lunch here on a sunny day and it was very pleasant seeing the ocean and all the main street activity. The "outdoor" seating is covered by a large awning so you get the view with no sun. The staff is friendly enough though the restaurant seems to cater to the... More

We had lunch here and ordered the sushi salad. After serving the salad they informed us that the tuna wasn't available and therefor they put more salmon on. As customer you would appreciate to be informed upfront and asked if you then want to change the order. Ashame and the sushi salad itself was not good. The kliptong with cashew... More

This restaurant is a must for summer. The setting is magical with views across Camps Bay beach. Choose to sit inside, under cover on the top terrace or at the outside terrace. The outside terrace has an awning that can be drawn if the sun gets too harsh. The food is special; we enjoyed sushi, steak, seafood, salads and well... More

Thank you for your positive Review of Paranga. Unfortunately the bongo drums can sometimes be very noisy but they usually move on quickly. The authorities have managed to move them over the road as they used to perform on the pavement at the entrance to the restaurant! This is a day time activity and not always enjoyed by all. We...

We went to Paranga by family on Friday night (10th) we booked prior and got a great table at the window. The restaurant had a great vibe and feel to it and our waiter Clive, (a fellow Zimbo) gave us excellent service and was very gracious. We had just had starters at The Bungalow down the road (which was awesome)... More

I visited here with friends for dinner and had the salmon which of course was very fresh. My girlfriend had the breaded chicken which was delicious. We were all happy with our meals and I must suggest trying the chilli mojitos. Be careful as they can be hot! Well worth a trip.

We had lunch at Paranga today and I can honestly say this place never disappoints. The service is always friendly and efficient and the food outstanding. We had oysters for a starter, they were lovely and for mains we had a sole and truffle fillet, both were delicious. I thought the fillet could have done with a little bit more... More

This place had excellent food and very cool ambiance. Staff is great. The restaurant was open to the outdoors and it was a little chilly that evening, they have blankets at all the seating near the doors so you can keep warm. Loved this place. Great prices as we'll.
