It very difficult to choose from the tempting menu. Emphasis is on fresh with unusual flavour combinations - but spot-on every time. Our starters included the duo of pates with pear pickle and a beetroot, rocket & ginger salad. The main course (recommended by the chef) - lamb stew - was melt-in-the-mouth superb. Desert was coffee with mini Madeleines, sorbet... More

My boyfriend and I thought the food was lovely at Bizerca. We had been recommended the place by the owner of our hotel. Everything was yummy!

I love going to Bizerca as I know what to expect from Laurent one my favourite Chefs. The Restaurant is always immaculate and they can't do enough to please the selective patrons. Always excited to see the blackboard with the tantalizing Specials as they frequent the market daily to see what is available. Bizerca is must for the Diner who... More

This is our third meal at Bizerca and it has consistently got better. My yellowfish with cauliflower mash and gorgeous vegetables was simply outstanding. We loved the courtyard and the wine list was very good.

Had a marvelous meal on August 7, 2014. Had a marvelous table, good food, good wine and marvelous time. The waitress was top notch and so was the manager. I would highly recommend this restaurant. By US standards the cost of the meal was very inexpensive.

I had dinner with friends at Bizerca Bistro and it was excellent! Excellent service and excellent food, only the wine was disappointing (a 2008 Pinotage, the worst I had in South Africa). The environment was very agreeable. We sat outside and it was a little bit chilly so they brought blankets to all of us. I ordered the veal tongue... More

We had an absolutely amazing dinner here. Daily specials are posted on chalkboards in addition to the standard menu. We appreciated the short menu, as there were plenty of great choices, which together with the board of specials created a full menu. Each dish we tried was unique and perfectly prepared. We brought a bottle of wine from one of... More

I attended a birthday party at Bizerca Bistro and we sat in the courtyard, absolutely beautiful! The service was great, the manager explained the menu in detail. I had the Raw Norwegian Salmon Salad as a starter and it was incredible! The beef fillet with a bone marrow crust was delicious! I cannot wait to return again and again!

The choice on the main menu seemed boring. But..... then came the "Board". His specials. Now we were "cooking". Then it became difficult to choose. We could play around with the dishes; starters could be turned in to mains portions and the other way around. Very flexible. We were made to feel real guests. Special. On the wine front I... More

Probably the worst food we experienced in Cape Town. Extremely arrogant and off hand service, from the maître 'd, menu very limited, asked for the specials board which at the time was being used by other clients. Eventually having asked twice three boards appeared! We ordered, oysters with gooseberries , was ok followed by in edible duck, so disgusting I... More
