Busy even on a Wednesday evening, so glad that we booked. Quite a small menu, which I saw as a reflection of the quality and freshness rather than a limitation. Good wine selection. Recommended by the staff to choose Hartebees, as it's not often available. Glad that we did, really delicious and very well cooked. Everyone enjoyed their food and... More

A great venue combining the modern new feel with old brick and rock work. We were fortunate to have a table in the courtyard on a great April evening in Cape Town. The choices and menu options are great. The table of 10 all enjoyed the mains. The best was however the sweet selection. The presentation superb and the tastes... More

Bistro Bizerca is well located at Heritage Square. It has a very attractive indoor area and also uses the Heritage Square Courtyard as an outdoor dining area. The outdoor area is cobbled which means some of the tables can be off the level and the seats are metal. This area is also covered by an awning, providing shelter from the... More

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.
