the service is great, friendly waiters, and the tapas are excellent. The interior is very nicely decorated. The portions are rather small, so make sure you order more than one per person, the waiter is very helpful in recommending certain options and answering any questions about the menu. Quite an intimate place, rather quiet and comfortable while being the right... More

I've stumbled upon this place by chance and ended up coming back for more. Over 2 lunches I enjoyed there, I've tasted almost half of the menu and every single one was superb. The ingredients were top quality and all the combinations were very interesting. This includes seemingly simple and cheap ones like honey sweet potatoes with mayonnaise, which were... More

We visited Fork for lunch on our first day in Cape Town. The food was very tasty and the restaurant had a rustic cozy feel to it that our group really enjoyed. The portions are good for sharing, but some can be on the small side so just make sure to order enough if you're hungry. The service was great,... More

We stumbled in by chance when just passing by looking for a nice place for dinner in City Bowl. Very cosy place with "tapas" (rather like small courses) that are very imaginative and well compostelansk. Try for example the tiger prawns, the green asparagus and the curry chocken breasts! Good affordable wine list too! Great place with great service.

This little place on Long Street is a gem. We sat upstairs on the little deck and could view the street scene on our first day in a Cape Town. We had a great waiter and a super tapas lunch including wine, latte, and dessert for $9.

We stopped here for an early tapas dinner after a busy day wandering around the city and we really enjoyed the food. There were plenty of great options for myself and my vegetarian husband. The staff were friendly and helpful explaining the menu items to us.

After eating at Test Kitchen it was hard to be wowed by anymore food, but for the price this was FANTASTIC. We ordered so much food and were astonished how inexpensive everything was. Plus the vibe was really great. It was a great choice for a more casual night out for our honeymoon. Definitely worth a visit!

Fork is simply amazing! I was in Cape Town for a week, you might think I am a little crazy but I went back for a second round! We had dinner twice in this quaint and cosy restaurant. Our waiter Jason is very attentive and he knows about all the dishes. He gave very good recommendations and he is very... More

We stopped at Fork for a quick lunch on our way to BoKaap area. We ended up having a bit of a longer lunch, because we enjoyed the tapas so much and kept ordering. Great wine list, clean place, nice decor, fast service, and above all delicious and creative food selections! Loved the hostess, she gave great recommendations and was... More
