Fabulous and eclectic menu.... Too many things to order and enjoy! We stuffed ourselves with more courses than we probably should have. Great wine list, lovely ambiance and attentive service.

We have been to Bizerca on a couple of occasions previously and had wanted to impress our overseas visitors but were disappointed. The starters arrived promptly and were delicious. We then waited an hour and a half for our main course! The chef had forgotten about our order! Tables around us which had arrived after us received their orders way... More

Heritage Square in Capetown's Central Business District is unique enough for its history and preservation, but when you include Bistrot Bizerca and its neighboring art galleries and cape Heritage Hotel, you have a small urban oasis. After a day of wine tasting, we decided to go to the bistrot for light supper, but the selections were too special to limit... More

We ate here based upon other TripAdvisor reviews - another winner. A little more formal restaurant with an interesting menu and blackboard specials. Staff we friendly and the service efficient. Food was excellent.

We arrived without a reservation and were fortunate to be seated and enjoy an amazing dinner at this charming establishment. The ostrich was cooked to perfection, accompanied by a most scrumptious sauce of berries and mushrooms. My husbands's seafood soup was also outstanding. We appreciated the attentive, but not overly so, wait-staff. Loved the special touch of the chef-owner greeting... More

A gorgeous restaurant to dine at and the front of house staff were excellent. The menu changes and there are only three set main dishes but the specials are vast and I found it difficult to choose what I wanted. I ended up having the Veal Shank which was delicious and well prepared. Our waitress was lovely but I found... More

We ate here and had a delicious and memorable meal. My husband had soup with mussels & prawn and beef fillet with mushrooms and wine sauce. I had veal cooked two ways. Both were absolutely delicious. The service was attentive and the wine delicious. We had an amazing dinner here. highly recommend.
