Don't come here too hungry! Expect small portions as this place is about FLAVOURS, not big meals. Each dish is little mouthfuls (usually 4 so try come in even numbers to share), that are works of art packed full with complexity and symphony of flavours. You will definitely taste things that you cannot elsewhere! The staff are clearly seasoned veterans,... More

Every time I visit Cape Town, I always eat a meal at Fork. Service is impeccable, the food is simply fantastic with many variations of South African tapas, to satisfy all taste buds. I am no great lover of desserts but in Fork they are simply delicious. Lastly, the wine selection is always excellent, with help at hand for people... More

We arrived for lunch and the waiter talked us into allowing him to choose the small plates this restaurant is known for. What a great meal! Choices we would not have made, even lots to eat for the vegetarian among us!

Very creative tapas menu, perfect on a cold evening. Welcoming, intimate, and nicely decorated interior. Friendly and prompt service, great wine, and don't forget to try the deserts. Tapas is a fun way of exploring all kinds of dishes together with your partner or friends. Perfect for a casual evening out and well priced to boot.

The tapas comes in five different price categories allowing you to try from Kudu meat with chilli potato purée to... More

Found this place by accident but was really impressed by the food. Definitely worth a visit. Tapas style food with a SA twist.
