Cafe Caprice combines artisan cocktails, a cafe-style menu, relaxing lounges and sidewalk seating to experience the epitome of Cape Town's cosmopolitan social scene. Situated directly across from Camps Bay Beach at 37 Victoria Road, open 7 days a week since 1999, it is a home for many Cape Townians and a must visit destination for tourists.

Camps Bay beach is the ultimate sunset viewing spot and Cafe Caprice provides the perfect backdrop, as DJ's fill the space with laid back music from Thursday to Sunday with a deep, chilled house soundtrack.

Just an ordinary bar. Actually walked in and left as not very attractive but ended up meeting friends there. Definitely the place to be seen but not sure why.

Terrible and snotty service. The servers promised to find us a table and then borderline ignored our party, giving tables to other parties who had come after us, mostly parties of all white patrons. There was a particularly unpleasant waitress. We eventually just left, disgusted. Never going there again.

Nice location with a beach outlook. Lounge around in the big comfy sofas and enjoy the cocktails. Great selection of drinks and food for you to while the day and night away. If you are after good food then head to any of the restaurants in the area and come back here for the drinks.

We had a lunch on a Saturday and although the atmosphere was viby the food was very dissapointing. Caesar salad with 2 old and hard croutons, dry chicken very little dressing and no anchovies was not enjoyed. And the chicken schnitzel which the daughters had was dry- and despite ordering the half they were brought the full portions. Waitress forgot... More

We felt that the staff in this place were more interested in serving friends than they were in serving guests. The food wasn't great either.

People go to Cafe Caprice to party on Sundays. It's a decent cafe that turns into a nightclub in the evenings. Unfortunately Caprice is often crowded and noisy, so you won't necessarily get a table where you can sit down and have a conversation.

Great service and a cool place to drink but really the food! I ordered an omelette which took 15 minutes arrive. It must have container 8 Eggs and was like rubber. Totally inedible. I sent it back. Don't bother eating here.

Terrible terrible service and gross food... I think if you're looking for more of a night club vibe, and not a place to eat it would be a fun scene. Our fault for wanting to eat here I guess haha.
