We had no reservation as we had just arrived in Cape Town, so they apologetically offered us a table on the outdoor deck which was just perfect for us! It was quiet and secluded and we thoroughly enjoyed our wine, starters, and imaginative main dishes. The service was helpful and fun. It was perfect. So perfect we went back the... More

We had dinner here and the food was very good and simple. The prices are also good compared to what you get. The staff managed to mix up the orders and the starters did not show up. This was very well compensated by a huge dessert by the manager. Will definitely visit again.

Lovely setting with inside and outside seating. Stunning décor. Food is divine, also good for a glass of wine after work in the tranquil gardened front. Lovely for a late breakfast.

Our hotel suggested this place as a good choice with kids (mine are 10) and made the reservation for us. It is DARLING - love the layout and atmosphere. That June evening we were led to a wonderful table by a fireplace, but it was way too hot inside to sit by the fire, so we asked for a table... More

This was an unplanned visit as we could not get into their sister restaurant The Bombay Bicycle Club up the road! The manager there suggested Cafe Paradiso, made a quick call and 5 mins later we were warmly greeted with glasses of bubbly to make up for not being able to have our pork ribs at the BBC! Superb staff,... More

Fabulous atmosphere enhanced by a spectacular view and simply wonderful food and caring service. Kudu loin and rosemary chicken are just two of our favorites. The fresh baked bread is not only the stuff of dreams but if available something to take home for a luxurious next day breakfast.

I recently ate here on my trip to Cape Town and the veal pasta I had was heavenly and I enjoyed every bite. Their lemon meringue which is suppose to be amazing according to the menu lived up to its hype and its a generous serving portion. I like that they also served craft beers.

One of our favourite eateries! We've enjoyed sitting near the fire with a bowl of really good soup in winter or out under the trees in summer. The food is outstanding anytime!
