Deservedly one of the top dining experiences in Cape Town

The food is fantastic, easy to indulge in and, although very sophisticated, not at all too complicated or rich. The menu is structured around the 5 taste groups and craftily presents 'small plates' ideal for sharing and expanding ones culinary experience. The location is really spectacular... read more

The views are great and the food was good. Pick out dish was the beef. Pot Luck is worth a visit but not before The... More

Different in a good way than any restaurant I have been to in a while. Staff were friendly and took the time to explain menu items which added to the overall experience.

From the moment you step into the glass lift to ascend to the top of a silo in the middle of the old factory suburb of Woodstock, you know you are in for a different experience. Stepping out into the Pot Luck Club is like landing in hipster wonderland. Contemporary industrial decor frames 360 city views of harbour mountain and... More

Great views to show off Cape Town to visitors. Very attentive service comes with sensible advice as to what to chose. A venue for a special occasion. Book early, especially for the later sitting.

Nice original place to eat. Original concept, you choose 6 - 8 courses to share. The combination is sometimes special, nice place to visit, good ambiance and very nice staff!

This year we were not so enthousiastic about Pot Luck Club. Tartar was nice but the other choices not. Think we will skip it next year

First time here but definetly not the last. Selection of food here is first rate and cooking and service is to match. I had the best beef tartar i have ever had here and it plus the other selections made it one of the best meals of my latest Cape Town holiday. If you can get in DO ALL GO.

Make reservations - even if it is just for lunch! This is one of the top restaurants that I have ever been to and you just get tapa style bites! The menu is select, the wine is all local and the best, the food is prepared just a few feet away and the vistas are of the industrial side of... More
