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

I was just looking to have a drink after having eaten at a nearby restaurant, Col 'Cacchio (delicious), and the "security" denied me entry because I had a take away box in my hands. The kitchen was closed so they were no longer serving food, and I certainly wasn't planning to eat my leftovers. While I can understand not allowing... More

Best bar in Campsbay with amazing looking people. Good for an afternoon chillout. The mojitos are a must!

While Caprice is packed from midday onwards, it was quite refreshing to be able to easily get a table and good service for breakfast. Few places would compare with the stunning view of Camps Bay beach on a sunny day. And the food was excellent too, as was the service. The only downside was careless smokers whose pollution wafted across... More

Cafe Caprice is not just a restaurant - its an institution! Iconic on the Cape Town map. It is the only place to head to for a sundowner cocktail and meal ... offering brilliant burgers, nachos, and cafe style food! The cocktails are epic - not too fancy or fussy - but lured with a stiff hand and a big... More

The place has a great relaxing vibe where you can just chill with an ocean view. The cocktails are delicious and the food (especially the burgers!) is fantastic. Go there and enjoy!

We arrived for an early lunch after hearing good reports. We were greeted and shown to a table, given menus and ordered only to be told a little while later that lunch only started 45 minutes later!!! We had our cool drinks and asked for the bill, when it arrived, we had been charged for our lunch that we were... More

On a beautiful spring Sunday morning we decided to have lunch in beautiful Camps Bay, set against the backdrop of the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range. It has the most beautiful beaches in Cape Town and is perfect for a holiday, lunch or late afternoon sundowners. It was perfect, almost spring weather, and first of all we drove along the coast...

We had visited Cafe Caprice a couple of times during our time in Cape Town. It's in an idyllic location a stones throw away from Camps Bay beach and makes for a really chilled atmosphere. They have an extensive cocktail menu; I would recommend their Margarita made with agave syrup! We had been a little disappointed on our last visit... More

This place is perfect for sundowners and has excellent cocktails, but I would recommended going for sunset drinks and leaving before the crowds get there. They pack far too many people in and the wait and bar staff are downright lazy. I asked two different waitresses how to order food. The first raised her eyebrows at me, put her hands... More
