Enjoyed a pleasant evening with a good dinner. Within an hour we had a three course dinnner reasonably priced. They ccould have slowed down this. Atmosphere is pleasant and local.

Lovely garden setting, good food from a well rounded menu - ie something for everyone. The cherry on the top is the typical Madame Z service.

Great location on kloof street, nice outside area. Fantastic meat platter and other lunch munchies and we need to mention waiter Lee's outstanding performance. He lifted The whole experience to a higher level. Definately recommend this place.

Lucked out by getting a reservation for our group of five. They sat us in a really cool baking space in the back of the restaurant that’s used for community classes. While they prepared the space, we were able to enjoy a few drinks at an outdoor bar area, which was great. Wine and drinks were great, staff was attentive... More

Very reasonable prices, good portions and delicious food. Lovely cocktails, beautiful music and charming staff. Not easy to find parking, if necessary park elsewhere and take a short cab ride. Drop a donation into their wishing well for charity and go to this Paradise-like cafe, so beautifully named, by all means! A worthy member of the Madame Zingara group.

We were a table of 10 (some more sober than others). Waitress started off giving the impression we weren't to be taken seriously. She warmed up over the course of the evening. Besides the slight attitude, she was efficient. All round people were happy with the food. Rave reviews for the various steak options (fillet, sirloin and their "Tomahawk" special).... More

A lovely eve out with good friends, good wine & food in a great setting! Great ambience & awesome friendly and service...I only wish there were more tapas on the menu to share with friends. That being said the sirloin with onion & cranberry jus with polenta fried cubes on the side went down a treat! Great little secret garden... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in South Africa. Apart from the excellent food, it has such a unique feeling - children making their own pizza's, lovely ambiance, service very good - a real gem for Cape Town!

A good range of choice in the menu, friendly waiters and leisurely pace. Good for lunch and dinner but booking is well advised since it's a popular venue!

The restaurant managed to fit us in a short notice. Food and service were both very good. Offers both inside and outside dinning.
