My boyfriend and I recently visited from the states and were sent here by our local hotel. We went there at 8 pm on a Thursday night. The place was pretty full, most people finishing up dinner by this point. We decided to order a bottle of wine- very reasonable prices. We started off with prawns which were great! We... More

Delicious fresh fish, immaculately prepared. The Japanese chicken stir fry had such clean flavours. Highly efficient service. Look forward to a return visit.

Lovely little restaurant with an intimate feel. Service was friendly and forthcoming with a great knowledge of the wine list. Personal care from one of the owners who knew the specials like she had made the food herself. And the fish was cooked to perfection with interesting sauces. An all round great evening our.

They have a hot waitress says my son. But this restaurant is special because it's been run by husband and wife team for 20 years. It's not big, they know that if it were it wouldn't be so successful. A smaller restaurant means a warm friendly atmosphere and here I had the best fish ever I have ever had. Lastly... More

Whenever I am in Cape Town, I make sure that I have dinner here at least once! It is most certainly "Sol" food (the chef's name.) The service is excellent and the fish and oysters are always fresh. Don't like seafood? No problem! You can't go wrong with any of the dishes!

It’s been years since we last frequented Millers Thumb and our impromptu dinner there on Friday evening was just as good as the first time we visited. The menu is small and simple. Although there are a variety of options its basically what type of fish do you want and how would you like it cooked - and they do... More

Always warm, charmingly staffed and the kitchen has a reliably delicious way with fish. But most of all I ADORE this restaurant because one can talk to a companion in normal tones without competition from unnecessary muzak.
