Very good food and service

We visited Fork restaurant whilst staying in Cape Town on holiday. We received a very friendly welcome from the owner who obviously has a passion for his restaurant, and a very hands on approach, which is rare and was nice to see. Our other waitstaff were also friendly, attentive and... read more

this is a real find along Long Street, just up from the city tour Red stop 5. We were shown upstairs to the cool a/c room from the hot bustle if the street. Our waitress catered well to request for Gluten free option on the lunch menu, and chef prepared a special variation with Grilled Kudo. 12 year old had... More

Caught a lunch here. The place is larger than it appears with a second floor with a nice terrace overlooking the street. Service was good; food good. We had 2 glasses of wine and 4 plates we shared. Damages were ~ 35 USD. A nice and relaxing stop.

We had an absolute delicious lunch with ostrich, tiger prawns, kudu and tuna..the flavours are fantastic and the food is beautifully presented. Friendly, approachable staff and very reasonable prices! Great option whether looking for a light lunch or large dinner. A must-visit when on long street!

To start with the vibey energy in Central Cape Town on a windfree day is hard to beat and Fork is in the centre of it all. The tapas was delicious, each little taster intense and scrumptious. A few delicious and small portions make up an interesting and flavourful meal in a very different way to a big plate of... More

This was my second time eating here. The first time was for my honeymoon April 2014 with a group tour and this time March 13, 2015 with family and friends. The food was delicious the first time that I recommended we come here for dinner. This was my husband's and my second time visiting South Africa, but my sister and... More

One of my favourite spots. Being in Loop street, its perfect to combine a good dinner with a night out. The food is excellent - lots of variety and some of the dishes are just incredible. If you like tapas this is the place. The wine selection is also very good. The place itself is festive and busy and fits... More

The service is great and super friendly; I was greeted at the door by an extremely helpful and friendly host. The place is small and intimate, but not cramped. It has a great atmosphere. The food is very tasty; just come with plenty to spend, because you'll want to try almost everything, and it adds up fairly quickly!

On arrival we were greeted and taken upstairs to a cosy table for two. The menu was explained properly and the waitron could tell us about each dish. As per his suggestion we ordered a few items and they brought out the tapas on regular intervals. The flavours and combinations were delightful. The portions were more than sufficiant and the...
