We a group of 6 friends while roaming in downtown Cape Town wanted to grab something for lunch. We decided to try Tapas at Fork after reading its reviews at tripadvisor. We tried almost all the different tapas in menu. The portions are small but the taste was excellent and so was service. Highly recommended and definitely want to visit... More

We love trying new dining experiences, and Fork came highly recommended. Our waiter was very professional but slow. The presentation of the food was good, but the size of the tapas was very, very small. To ease our hunger we ordered more plates of food. The wine and tapas came to a huge bill (according to SA standards) and we... More

We happened to stumble upon this restaurant while visiting Cape Town this month and were totally surprised! At the start we were unsure as how to order but our awesome waiter set us straight! I think in the end we ordered just about everything on the menu and shared between the 4 of us! The drinks were great as well!... More

Stopped here for a quick lunch whilst in Cape Town on business. The Ostrich fillet was very good, although possibly a little TOO rare for me. The Pork Belly however was sublime. I know it is tapas, but portions WERE small (im a hungry carnivore) so probably go with 4-5 dishes per person if hungry

After a busy day of wine tasting, Fork was a perfect finish for a light tapas meal. We had the roasted butternut squash with hummus, unique and tasty Moroccan meatballs, an exquisitely prepared pork belly. The only dish that fell a little flat was the sardines. We sat on the balcony on a pleasant fall evening and enjoyed the unusual... More

Great tapas restaurant! As you might infer from the title, the Kudu was amazing! I had never tried it before and now I'm hooked, not just on kudu but on Fork's kudu. Right away the service started out excellently. We were greeted at the door and made to feel most comfortable while waiting for a table and then swiftly seated... More

My husband and I wandered into Fork for a light snack and ended up spending a couple of hours there having fantastic food and wine. The service was excellent and there were great vegetarian options as well as unique meat dishes. Definitely a place we want to come back to when we are in Cape Town again.

Loved the tapas at Fork. Order and share! All the things we ordered were delicious. Friendly, confident waiters who are knowledgable about the menu. And the meal was very-well priced R800 for four people... included a bottle of wine and 2 liquers.

And plenty of choices if you like all kinds of foods besides just veggies It's tapas style so we tried 12 to 15 unique types of foods. None disappointed. Got in fairly easily on a Friday night which surprised. But place packed by time of our... More

Tapas style, great to share and try many dishes, but not too expensive. Our favorites were the beef raviolione and the ostrich. Service was excellent as well.
