This cosy, rustic restaurant is situated in central Cape Town city and is a must as the tapas is truly delicious with an excellent and creative menu. Ideal for a light lunch or for dinner as the choice is varied enough to have a full meal. Vegetarians well catered for. Excellent service. Can highly recommend.

Fork is a delightful restaurant located on Long Street in Cape town. Long Street is a busy shopping area during the day that closes up around 5 pm and then in the evening, is transformed into an energetic bar and club scene. Fork is somewhat of an oasis. Very reasonably priced tapas (small plates) that were very interesting. My favorite... More

Really amazing South African tapas here in a lovely setting. Dishes ranged from 30 to 65 rand per dish which with the strong pound at the moment meant that I enjoyed 4 or 5 delcious dishes including kudu, ostrich and tiger prawns for £2 - 3 per dish and only spent £13 plus 2 glasses of sangia! Very happy and... More

A quaint tapas bar in Long Street. Great wine selection. They have a wide range of fusion tapas dishes that are interesting, exciting and very yum. It is a lot of fun to order a few dishes and share around the table. The figs, rocket and feta salad with macadamia nuts and pomegranate dressing is sublime. Do also try the... More

Fork has become my favourite Lunch destination. In the heart of the Mother City of Cape Town, located in the iconic Long Street, this is a superb, consistent establishment of 10 yrs in the making! Serving beautiful and delicious tapas/spanish inspired pinchos dishes, it quite simply is a simple delight to visit! A must see !

Simple layout but impressive bites. We were taught that the development of the very popular TAPAS is Pinchos. The food are delish and the easy going, good value

Although locals refer to this as a tapas restaurant, it does not serve Spanish food but rather South African small plates. The food was excellent, moderately priced, with a good wine selection. The restaurant is small, so make reservations.

We have been to many top restaurants and this humble tapas bar has some of the best food we have ever tasted. Ignore any of the negative reviews. You must go.

Fork is located away from tourist places. Since we stayed in the hotel near by, we managed to have two dinners there. The restaurant is quite small but very friendly. I think this is the place where locals go. The menu is not big but everything tasted good. As far as I remembered, the local wine was well priced.
