As we've been to Maremoto to celebrate my birthday, the team of Maremoto, especially Marc, were so nice and friendly and spontaneously offered a little surprise. The food, ambience and staff were amazing, thanks for the great evening! We'll come back.

More upscale than some other "homely" restaurants on Long Street, the only quibble we had with this one was the choice of food on offer. The food itself was really good, and it made a real change from other offerings in the area. But I didn't feel the choice was as good as others in the area. Nevertheless, I would... More

Although the entrance is a bit off putting and nondescript it is a great place, great food, subtle decor, concise menu and really friendly staff particularly Mark and Forget . It is just a block from the Pepperclub hotel so within safe walking distance. It was so good we ate there the next night. We had (not all at once... More

I usually am doubtful about restaurants that have people standing outside asking you to come in and give them a try. Something about the young mans manner and genuine enthusiasm about the place made me try it. What a pleasant surprise! Lovely lovely decor not too noisy , view of the kitchen which I always like clean friendly and efficient... More

We had the seafood soup as starter and, and the pork belly and fish of the day as mains. The food was delicious, the seafood was super fresh and cooked perfectly. We had great service, tho we were there on a very quiet night, the staff were attentive and friendly.

We ate here with a group of 10 people. We all loved the place, which doesn't look much from the outside, but serves some great food, so much so that 4 of us returned for lunch 2 days later. The pork belly was particularly good, as was the calamari and chorizo starter.

We chanced upon this restaurant whilst walking down Long Street, the buzz place in Cape Town. Not wanting to go to a beer hall or bar, this little restaurant caught our fancy and so glad we did. Run by three charming black attired white South Africans who appeared to combine cooking, greeting and playing mine host,with a well trained staff.... More

Its strange to sit in a restaurant in a busy and lively part of the city and be the only patrons. The restaurant was beautifully laid out, excellent decor and feel, but nobody eating. We thought we would give it a go anyhow. We started to worry that the food was the reason people weren't visiting the restaurant but were... More
