Loved this place

I am always quite sceptic - BUT this place was amazing! Chapeau! High quality food, nice service, beautiful setting - I felt myself as somewhere back in France. Will definitely visit this place again and again, and again....

There are many really great restaurants in Cape Town and competition is fierce. There are a few that stand out above the rest. Bizerca Bistro in one of them offering a taste experience matched by few. Imaginative flavours using great ingredients and good portions too! I rate this better than Pot Luck Club. Book early to avoid disaapointment.

From arrival in the cosy restaurant, or sitting in the cool patio the ambiance is evident and matched with excellent friendly and knowledgeable staff. Very original menu with many tempting dishes, brilliantly prepared! Second time I have been, has been brilliant both times - one of the best for foodies..

Bizerca is one of our favourite places to go for dinner in Cape Town. The Norwegian Salmon salmon with goats cheese is an absolute must as a starter or as a main course. The service is good and the restaurant is normally full so book in advance. The chef creates interesting dishes with fresh products so the menu changes.

The restaurant has lovely decor, table settings with attention to detail and nice big, think rimmed wine glasses, not chunky cheapie! Food is excellent and a bit on the expensive side but is definitely fine dining.

We used to go often to the old location and a couple of times since they moved to Heritage Square. Still very good and would recommend them.

The restaurant is well located, and the setting is quite nice with that large patio (that can be a bit chilly late at night). The food is fine, but I would not say that it is french. Nice atmosphere

Went for dinner with friends. The steak tartare was incredible and the portion very generous. The meals my party had all looked very good. The service was average for the price bracket of this eatery. After dinner we went to he adjoining night club where it seems Cape Town's disco set get their party on.

We visited Bizerca on the recommendation of our hotel driver, he had taken an American food critic there who said it was better than the Test Kitchen! It didn't fall to disappoint in anyway, food, service ambiance and great wine. We'll be back!
