Good value. Fish was very good and prices reasonable. Service is excellent though you might need to slow them down! Used by locals so busy and slightly noisy though that adds to the atmosphere

The ambience, the service, the quality and the taste of the food, the choices on the menu, the wine...everything worked in harmony. This is one of the best restaurants in Cape Town, and if you want to experience a brilliant fish dish, well then I can only recommend Miller's Thumb. Left feeling grateful and completely satisfied.

An extensive fish menu with a lot of different sauces . They also have meat on the menu although we only ate fish. A relaxing venue but it is a good idea to book first.

The bed and breakfast we stayed at, referred us to this little gem. The restaurant was full and we had no reservations. We were whisked off to the bar, had a drink and were then seated shortly afterwards. The food is amazing. Best calamari I have eaten in a long time. The interior is quirky and there's a real vibe...

Stumbled upon this restaurant this evening and were welcomed despite having no reservation. Immediately felt at home in this relaxed,non pretentious gem on kloof, which is a rarity nowadays. The owner and waitresses were so down to earth and watching them bustle away around the extremely busy restaurant was an awesome site. Despite being busy they smiled as they worked,... More

We visited Miller's Thumb with our four children aged 9-16 and it was fantastic. Delicious food for everyone, service extremely friendly and efficient. We mostly ate the seafood but everything was the best it could be, tasty and varied. The atmosphere was comfortable, friendly and informal. While we were in Cape Town we ate in some gorgeous restaurants and I... More

My wife and I ate at Miller's Thumb after reading the great reviews. It definitely lived up to it's great reputation and great reviews. We were lucky enough to be within walking distance (less than 5 minutes from our hotel - Walden House). The restaurant is really quaint and cozy - very busy with locals which is always a good...

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
