Great Tapas

The wide ranging menu is brought to your table on big chalk boards, the atmosphere is always fairly lively in the evening and pre-booking in the evening is almost always necessary unless dining late.

The wide ranging menu is brought to your table on big chalk boards, the atmosphere is always fairly lively in the evening and pre-booking in the evening is almost always necessary unless dining late. Great food, friendly staff, worth a visit for some really nice tapas - the cumin crushed ostrich steak is also really good!

After a long day of sitting on the City Sightseeing Bus that took me around the Cape Peninsula (a MUST do btw!)...i decided to treat myself to a nice dinner. I had read somewhere about the magnificent balsamic beef fillet at La Boheme in Sea Point. Since it was a mere 10 minute walk from my guesthouse...I ventured out. Although... More

I had a very pleasant experience here last night for my Valentine's days dinner.. :) definitely a very European dinner, dishes unlike any other restaurant in Cape Town. Friendly and polite staff, good environment for fine dining. Definitely suggest trying the pork belly :)

Good food. Decent service. Ok ambiance. Located at Main Road in Sea Point gives it good points for location too! All in all, might come back just for good food.

This is a very vibrant place-we ate in an awning attached to the main building, it's accoustically vibrating and great. We were served fantastic food and of course great wine. We were impressed with the restaurant we gave it another try. Again we ate outside in the awning and were prepared for it this time. We were served by a... More

I liked the whole setting, the menu boards the friendly staff and of course the food, which for me was duck... Very friendly priced too.

The small bistro is in Main street sea point. It has amazing value for money. A three course meal for R130 (I think). The menu is extensive and will suit all tastes. The wines are very affordable. It is such a convenient place to quickly pop in for tasty food.

We went here over a year ago but a friend asked us for suggestions in Cape Town and we remembered how much we loved this place. We had to wait a few minutes for a table but they had a nice area inside to sit and get a bottle of wine and then once we say down the food was... More

It may not look like much from the outside but the Steak was delicious. Possibly the best value for money steak in Cape Town. Very chilled vibe, casual dress the norm. I'm marking this a 5 out of 5 based on a combination of quality and price. I am not comparing this with any Fine Dining options available in Cape... More

You can choose between a 2 or 3 course set menu (with plenty of choice) or go with the menu with prices per item. The choices on the set menu should have something for everyone and is very well priced. Some of the starters portion sizes were a bit small. The food overall is very good. Try get seating in...
