We just had an excellent meal in Bizteca. The food was well prepared, tasty and not to rich. The restaurant is convenantly located near a large parkingplace. I hope to come back.

Four of us ate here last Thursday and had a great meal. Excellent service from the staff, many of whom seem to be from Francophone Africa. My starter - the betroot salad was my personal highlight. perfect. Two of my fellow diners had an incredible looking ostrich dish with a delicious ju, I lucked out - I ended up with... More

After a month in Cape Town, it's safe to say this was my favorite meal here to date. The chef sent out a yellow fin starter that set the tone for what was a truly excellent meal. Our party ordered entirely off the specials board, and loved the oysters, asparagus with poached egg & parmesan, ostrich, and beef. Everything was... More

Just had a delightful evening here. What we liked; - Very nice ambience, well-spaced tables, subtle lighting - Friendly, informative and efficient staff (was worried by a recent review on poor service, but happily that was not at all the case) - Both starters were exceptional – a beetroot salad with goats cheese (always a great combination) with an added...

I never go back to the same restaurant while on vacation, but we HAD to with this one. the food was unbelievable (best steak I've ever eaten). The wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable on everything on the menu. the atmosphere was romantic and had a warmth to it.

Hands down, this was an absolutely stunning meal. We liked so many things here, but two details that really made a difference: 1. The chef had the guts to use spices. The starter soup had such a perfect "bite", as did the fish of the day; 2. The veggies were really crispy and absolutely delicious. To our great delight, Bizerca... More

WOW, just amazing. The menu comes on a black board and is explained thouroughly. mmm, oysters to start with and a glass of bubbles, the ultimate starter. Fish with vegetables and nice sauce for main, and my husband had beef cheeks, lovely. Apple tart for dessert was very good, very fine. Conveniently located and easy parking just accross the road.

I have had neither of these before, but had them both last night. We keep returning whenever in Cape Town as I know there is always something "different" that I think I wouldn't touch in a million years, but tastes divine coming out of Bizerca's chefs amazing kitchen. These were both parts of main meals that we both had, but... More

Ambience : Rustic heritage location with contemporary decor etc. The restaurant seems small inside, and with the venue fully booked, as it was, it can be quite intrusive with noise from other tables. There was a booking with a large table of gentlemen having some function, and it did seem to irritate the other diners.There is also a beautiful courtyard... More

I enjoy dining in the courtyard at Heritage Square. We took overseas guests to Bizerca and it was ok. I went there a few years ago when it was in the Foreshore and I enjoyed it then.
