Great food and Great service

A laid-back setting, but the service is not laid-back. The waiters have an excellent knowledge of the menu.

Absolutely loved this place, the setting is so quirky the food is amazing. We had the steak tartare which was so nicely presented and a 100% up to French Standards - One of Cape Town's highly suggested restaurants. Definitely a must go to..

Our first night in Cape Town and we came here based on both Trip Advisor and our B&B's recommendation. This was one of the best meals we have ever had in our lives which includes some really great meals in France! I had the swordfish and my wife had the beet salad as starters, with the special (pan fried fillet)... More

It looks like the management of this bistro took the reviews at Tripadvisor and of Rossouw's South African Restaurant Guide very serioius, because we have nothing to complain about. Very nice food, good wines. Attentive waiters who offered good service. We had a lovely evening. Thumbs up!

Went to Bizerca with friends and colleagues after a while. I'd been many times and never disappointed. Turned out to be a wet, cold, windy wintry night but Bizerca was warm and welcoming. The food was superb as usual with plenty of options for meat eaters and vegetarians. Prices were fair and service was very good. The Gnocci and the... More

I was pleasantly surprised at how attentive the waiting staff were, and they really were knowledgeable. The small menu had some really unusual dishes, and the presentation of the food on the plate was excellent. I chose the large salmon salad, which was just right for me. A small wine list had some real gems on it, and tempted us... More
