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 Sunday Vibe

We did eat here on our first night but it was really quiet on a Thursday night. The food was good but nothing special about the menu although I did enjoy my burger. We went back on a Sunday evening for drinks and it was a different place. Total party vibe with DJ which was a lot of fun.

Been here on a few occasions and still can't see the hype about it . It's overrated and at one point one of the waitresses ended up drinking with the customers and still served us while clearly intoxicated (didn't get her name but she was unprofessional and rude). The guys behind the bar are great though and make good cocktails.Otherwise... More

We went there on a Sunday afternoon expecting to see a fun filled cafe with a beautiful view over Camps bay but instead it was lacking a genuine atmosphere and social aspect, but I can imagine there are better times that are had here.

I came here for an afternoon coffee and dessert. It was a long wait before my cappuccino was served and an even longer wait for the cheesecake. I started wondering if they have just started preparing the ingredients when I ordered for the cheesecake because it was a very long wait considering you only have to slice the cake. The... More

We chose Cafe Caprice because, on a weekday, it was the most buzzy place on the entire Camps Bay road. The servers were very friendly and courteous, the food and drinks looked and tasted great. We sat outside but the wind was too chilly so we shifted inside.

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

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