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.

My boyfriend and I loved the food here. It was our first dinner in Cape Town and South Africa. The service was good and the decor was nice.

Fork is an innovative, trend-setting restaurant in vibey Long Street serving excellent tapas. They have taken the Spanish idea of Tapas, combining it with all the different flavours and techniques of Europe and infused true South African ingredients and tastes. 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.

We had 6 plates which were all delicious. My favorites were the fried asparagus and the raviolionne with beef and quail egg. We also had the salmon, fried goat cheese, seared tuna, and kudu. The service and location were great, we dined on the 2nd floor balcony, which was nice.

We stumbled upon this place by accident and were happy with the result. The tapas were reasonably priced and the quality was excellent. We really loved the Moroccan meatballs and the fried goat cheese on sun-dried tomato biscuits. We only had one of the desserts but it was very good. The only complaint would be that some of the portions... More

Not the normal SA type cuisine, but very nicely done. The setting is good in an old Victorian style building in the heart of the famous Longstreet area of central Cape Town. Nice wine list that caters for all tastes and purses. The tapas style menu is well balanced and the plates very well presented.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, the Blackheath Lodge. They made a reservation for us and sent us on our way. Fork is a fun place to eat with a lively atmosphere. Place looked like it catered mostly to young couples on dates and larger groups (6-10 ppl), but it was perfect for a family as well (I was... More
