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

A good place for a beer after a beach day. Expect jetset and the chance to run into an international celebrity. At night (after 6pm) the music volume goes up and relaxed dining is out of the question.

A perfect place to watch the sunset. I advise to get their early to snag a good table. The view is perfect - and nice cocktails!

We had dinner there the past weekend and everything was great. Food was good, drinks were good and the service was good. The sunset is very nice from the cafe. We really enjoyed the vibe...the music was a bit loud at times but still really good.

This is the place to be if you are under 30 and single in Cape Town at Sunset. The sunset is just amazing and the restaurant is designed so that almost everyone gets a view as the sun sets. Its just the best place to chill in paradise as the posers drive past in their convertible cars. I don't think... More

The perfect Clifton location for a sundowner, situated right on the main road with views onto the beach and beyond - get a table on the sidewalk to experience the true Clifton vibe.

A great location by the beach in Camps Bay. The chicken mayo toasted sandwich and chips were an ideal lunch costing only 46 Rand. The cocktails were also very good value for money. The wife had a strawberry daiquiri for only 55 Rand. It was so big I renamed it a Strawberry daiquiri slush mountain.
