We ate here twice within the last week, it has become one of our "must go to" restaurants whilst staying in CT. The friendliness of the place is the first thing you notice (apart from the orange and green wall colour!), it has a great buzz about it, our waitress, Amber, was a delight, very upbeat. I had the bluenose... More

The place though small utilises space... More

I've had some of the best seafood I've ever had in Cape Town at Miller's Thumb, it's always delicious! It's not a fancy establishment but the atmosphere is warm and cozy and the staff are friendly and unpretentious. Meals can be quite expensive but worth every penny for portions that are more than adequate and food that is just so... More

Absolutely wonderful seafood served by friendly staff in an atmospheric restaurant. Really enjoyed our meal and the wine. Highly recommended for visitors to the Kloof Street area.

For the past few years we have a meal here - its a great place to visit . The food is superb along with great service and friendly staff. The specials are explained to you and they are happy to advise you if you need help deciding. The food is fresh and tasty.

Great food and very relaxed, casual atmosphere. Usually a very busy restaurant so be sure to book in advance. Portions of food were generous and good selection. The chef was most respectful of food allergies. It is a busy place so not the atmosphere for an intimate dining experience.

We ate here on New Year's Eve. The food was pretty good but it was the atmosphere that made it. The staff were really friendly and good at making recommendations.

This was our second visit to Miller's Thumb separated by several years apart. Unfortunately we were disappointed with the experience on this occasion. The Bluenose fish was heavy and rather tasteless whilst the Geelbek was a poor alternative to Hake. Despite all the presentational emphasis, the attention of staff became more of an interference than of assistance. Sorry!
