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 by the Sea

Great ambiance on a sunny day at the beach. The food was excellent and worth it. Pity I visited on my last day there.

Decided to pop in as I always do for the nachos and capharinhas. Both did not disappoint! Do yourself a favor and try out the chicken nachos. The service was also excellent. If I had a never ending supply of money I could have easily spent the entire day here

The host of our apartment told us Caprice had the best vine for sunset drinks, and it certainly does! Service was great, but we were on a Wednesday night - it looked packed whenever we walked past later in the week! We also order the Thai calamari salad, a plate of muscles and sweet potato wedges to share, which were... More

My friends from CT raved about this place so I decided to try it out. The service was slow and the waiters were not interested in serving us. One of the few bad experiences in CT

The view is quite pretty, and the cafe/cocktail vibe is consistent with most of the places dotted along this stretch, so if just wanting a few drinks this place is fine. The food was pretty average, and I guess this place becomes a bit more than a restaurant when the sun goes down, which gives it a bit of a... More

Love the ocean view from Caprice and the fact that there's no wind is a big bonus. Caprice also has nice vibe inside and a kinda of energy that I like when I go eat out at night time.

2nd time in Camps Bay, visiting on a weekday in February. My husband & I had lunch, and it was nice enough. Great spot to sit and watch the goings on in Camps Bay. We were staying nearby and decided we would go back for drinks that evening. We sat ourselves at a leaner with barstools near the bar. A... More

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
