Another fine example of Cape Town restaurants

There is no doubt that you can spend your entire Cape Town vacation hopping from one great restaurant to another. The Fork, just steps from the citys saturday open market, serves a tapas dinner - and each dish was great. I can easily recommend the figs and feta salad with pomegranate vingarette... read more

I've been to Fork on a previous trip to Cape Town and remember it fondly. It serves high quality tapas in an atmospheric setting. Three of us shared nine dishes and they were all excellent. The service was friendly and efficient and we loved it. Some of the highlights were the crispy asparagus and parmesan rolls, roast pork belly and... More

Their tapas and the forks displayed were just as awesome. Their theme did give a good impression to us visitors. A bit short of staff though. You may not be able to get seated on time even if you have made a booking so be prepared for a wait.

The tapas is not the traditional Spanish one, but still very tasty. A lot of vegetarian options as well. The service is efficient and friendly. The prices are relatively high for being Cape Town, but it was worth it!

This lovely little restaurant in Long Street combines excellent food and wines with great service. All the tapas-style dishes we had were prepared excellently. Don't forget to try the ravioli: it was better than any pasta dish I had in Italy!

We visited this restaurant on our first night in Cape Town and was blown away. Great, friendly and informative service. Cheap wine. The food is tapas but not Spanish, a mix of African and European flavors not to be missed. I can also recommend the cocktails! We spent two hours dinning on tuna, beef fillet and kudu. And kept ordering... More

We had a friendly and joking waiter who thankfully gave us the tip of ordering 8 tapas from the menu and share it amongst the 4 of us. This made for an interactive experience! We were so impressed with the 8 tapas that we ordered 4 desserts to also share amongst the 4 of us. Great service with flavourful food!... More

Probably had one of the worst meals I have had to date in Cape Town. We made the mistake of visiting fork this evening for a quick dinner. When we queried something on the menu, the waitress made an issue about it and told us that we need to be aware that Fork was a fine dining place and proceeded... More
