Managed to get a table on Saturday night during a recent trip to Cape Town. Loved being able to have lots of small dishes, each a delight. Service was great, waitress made some delicious recommendations. Will certainly be going back.

We really enjoyed the atmosphere, loved the wine selection, and the service was excellent. Our waiter made good recommendations and the food is exquisite. Definitely go with friends who enjoy food and sharing experiences. Expect small, bite-size morsels and a relaxed service. Fork is added to my list of "places to take people".

Loved the way this place works. Ordering small samples of things lets you try an abundance of local dishes and flavours. Ostrich and kudu are surprisingly delicious. Great alternative from the same old same old. Cozy little place with very few tables. Attentive wait staff. Highly recommended.

After reading the reviews on TA, we booked Fork for our first night in Cape Town, mainly due to its close proximity to our hotel (Mount Nelson). We arrived for dinner one hour earlier than we had booked because we were extremely hungry and tired. What a perfect choice! The staff were all, without exception, friendly and attentive and the...

A great business lunch venue for me, upstairs are booths so you can your privacy, the tapas are well prepared and presented. Service is efficient and friendly.

Had a nice meal her - don't go if you're famished! It's tapas style so it adds up quickly if you get a lot of dishes. We had four between two of us, we were satisfied and it was very tasty.

We all enjoyed Fork tremendously. The staff were friendly and welcoming and we were running a little late so I phoned ahead and told them and apologised again when we arrived at the restaurant. Nothing was a problem. We sat upstairs - had a great table and service was very slick. The atmosphere was also very convivial. We ordered a... More

We booked this restaurant based upon other TripAdvisor reviews - thank you previous reviewers because this was a winner! We enjoyed it so much that we ate here a second night.

I have been to Fork first time a few years ago and was not impressed at all. Went there now and was nicely surprised. I don't know if there is a new chef, owner or management, but i like it that way. Atmosphere was very relaxed, staff was friendly. Our waiter (very pleasant girl) let us enjoy our evening without... More
