On our first visit to Millers we were treated to a local South African fish that was perfectly prepared and pared with a delicious house red wine. Great value, great service.

What a gorgeous place; quaint and a little quirky but gorgeous!! The staff are enthusiastic and knowledgeable and really seem to care about the restaurant and it's visitors. The owners are friendly and visible without being intrusive. The menu is varied in options and types of cuisine but each dish we ordered was expertly put together...definitely not a case of... More

There's a lovely relaxed atmosphere in this restaurant, and I think we had the friendliest waitress I can ever remember. We decided to have fish, and chose the first two from kingklip, dorado, carpenter and yellowtail. There was also a choice of several ways of cooking them, and I'm sure any combination would have been good.

Speak to Jane, the Manageress. They have a fascinating menu - mainly fish based, although meat and chicken are also available. Thai flavour in many of the dishes. Interesting combinations - like chocolate on steak. Very tasty meal and reasonable prices in ZAR

We had the pleasure of enjoying a meal at Miller's Thumb two weeks ago. The restaurant is located in a lovely old converted house that oozes character & the food is absolutely delicious. The specials on the board were all interesting combinations of flavours and everything we tried, was truly amazing. Three of our party had fish & my husband... More

Miller's Thumb was recommended to us by the folks at Parker Cottage, which is just a short walk away. With two nights available for dining out, we came here the first night and loved the fres fish preparation and presentation that arrived at our table. We were so impressed that we returned the second night, bringing another couple, who were... More

The millers Thumb in Kloofnek is a small but awesome fish restaurant easily reached either by taxi or Myciti bus on route 106. During our stay in Cape Town we have so far eaten there three times and each time the food has proved to be first class. You will be taken through the specials board by Jane whilst her... More

Oh my gosh! So good! Had the kingclip creole style..it was fresh, juicy and spicy. Amazing. Then I had the chocolate pecan pie which was delish! Everything sounded great. Was such a tough choice. Staff was friendly and helpful. Love that the chef and his wife own it and have chosen to keep it to just one restaurant despite its... More

Good menu - we met some friends at Miller's and had a great time. The fish curry was awesome and can be recommended (my friend would have preferred it a bit spicier but we were told they are all mild). Good wine selection and the scene was vibey - maybe a little bit noisy (but that is just because I... More

Not only the service and recommendations were perfect - also the food!! It's great to combine the fresh fish with Moroccan and Tikka spices - we really loved it at Miller's Thumb!
