More than a Fork-full

Fork restaurant is my go to place when I- or the people I am dining with cannot decide what to have. Well presented and tasteful varieties of food from all over the world. Also add the best of interesting South African cuisine- kudo, ostrich, lamb. And enough variety for the vegetarian.

In a friendly, quiet atmosphere (Yes, you can get this in busy Long Street!): Tapas that you won't find anywhere else. A combination of the finest ingredients with that special touch that make each plate unique. Bravo!

We had been meaning to try Fork Restaurant out for a long time and having spent the most delightful evening there we cannot believe it took us so long. The tapas is absolutely outstanding, and we particularly recommend the asparagus and parmesan parcels and the grilled prawns wrapped in parma ham, but, to be honest, it is difficult to single...

I took some international business guests to Fork on Long street for lunch and we sat upstairs. It has a very warm atmosphere and friendly host.

It was so enjoyable eating small bits from all... More

I was overall not a fan because I found the restaurant very loud. HOWEVER, the service was great. We were seated promptly, though I suggest making a reservation so you do not have to sit at the bar table along the stairs.

Scrumptious food that comes in bite size portions so it is not for the big eaters. Excellent service. Great wine selection. Slightly overpriced food though. Great location.

Delicious food, fresh and well designed serving... Just walk in and enjoy, though sometimes you'd better book in advance; -)

I dined here on a friend's recommendation and enjoyed it so much I came back a second time. A terrific selection of delicious and very reasonably priced dishes. I had a full meal and a cocktail for R250 (including 20% tip).
