Description: Cafe Caprice combines artisan cocktails, a cafe-style menu, relaxing lounges and sidewalk seating to experience the epitome of Cape Town's cosmopolitan social scene. Situated directly across from Camps Bay Beach at 37 Victoria Road, open 7 days a week since 1999, it is a home for many Cape Townians and a must visit destination for tourists. Camps Bay beach is the ultimate sunset viewing spot and Cafe Caprice provides the perfect backdrop, as DJ's fill the space with laid back music from Thursday to Sunday with a deep, chilled house soundtrack. Cafe Caprice - a landmark on the Camps Bay promenade and an indelible part of the Cape Town bar and entertainment scene

Great bar on the waterfront, definitely the place for a sundowner if you can get a coveted seat outside. Inside, the bar is pretty large and the food is decent, the place also stays open late and gets a bit louder as the night goes on

Great spot its in a strip of restaurants to your right and left so even if you can't find a spot, you could always go next door. I advice you reserve in advance and that's what we... More

We went to this cafe for a beer and a sandwich after visiting Table Mountain. It was recommended by the hotel and taxi driver. When we arrived, there were no tables outside. We were offered a table "inside." However, instead of seating us on the nice side of the restaurant (full of empty tables), they put us on the side... More

Dear Sir, In response to your experience on Sunday, I would like to apologise that you were made to feel ostracised and indeed discriminated against. After having done some internal queries, we have come to understand that there was a miscommunication between the waitresses and the manager/host, since the policy we have is generally a no-reservations one for outside tables,...

Loved the food and the vibe although the music was a bit deafening - I was sitting outside close to the sidewalk.

Typically an outlet which rides on its reputation. Very much aware of itself and its reputation, they service staff acts as if they are doing you a favour. Either you like it or you don't.

Having visited Cafe Caprice before I was looking forward to having dinner there a couple of Wednesdays ago. Even better news....it was burger special. 2 for the price of 1. So we arrived and after a short time someone greeted us. We preferred to sit inside so we were happy to wait for a table and have a cocktail first.... More
