A Sight to Behold!

When you walk in to the Pot Luck Club you are struck by the informality of the place - wooden tables, no table cloths, no carpets or curtains. This is not "fine dining" in the conventional sense, but the food is prepared to lure you into another world of senses. You are presented with a Menu of... read more

The Pot Luck Club was booked for dinner until May, but what 'luck' that they managed to accommodate us for a semi late walk in lunch on A Saturday. I was most impressed by the host's willingness to assist us, first offering us a bar seat and then moving us to table as soon as one was available. Having said... More

The best meal we had in Cape Town in a long time. Decided to go for lunch. What a great view!!!! Great wine selection. Food was outstanding. Ordered 6 small plate dishes. Each one was better than the next. Will definitely be back.

Highly recommended.Great food, amazing service and ambience. There were 5 of us, and we ordered 20-22 plates of food. Fish tacos, beef tartar, ribs, calamari, fish & chips, broccoli and blue cheese.... ALL AMAZING. They're not cheap but I think it's worth it! Perfect for special occasions. We spent around ZAR 2,200 in total - food and drinks. We had... More

A truly great fine dining experience! An evening that will stand out in my mind for a long time to come. Each dish is exceptionally well thought out in terms of flavours that fuse well together and the take your tastebuds on a magical roller coaster ride of fun and imagination. Fantastic fantastic fantastic!

We loved this restaurant when we visited in September 2014 and really looked forward to our return visit. It was, unfortunately, quite disappointing. It took 15 minutes before our sever appeared and he was elusive for the remainder of the evening. The restaurant had run out of two dishes during the first sitting, which was surprising, as these are quite... More

This place is amazing. Foodie heaven. Menu is innovative and exciting. Everything was amazing - difficult to pick anything out specifically. We ordered 4 dishes each - that was too much. 3 per person probably enough for lunch. Service was only factor that could be improved...

The food was excellent - well-prepared and tasted delicious. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. It was an enjoyable experience and I can't wait to visit it with my family ... although I will have to pay this time!

I was looking forward to to eating at this place. I am writing this while still sitting waiting now for my dessert. From the beginning of to end. I felt welcome and took good care of. The Wine sommelier was very pleasant. It is difficult to recommend open wine for someone who dined alone. She was really friendly. Thank you.... More

This must be one of the most amazing places I've been! Based in the Biscuit Mill, 360 degree panoramic view and amazing menu, this is a must to visit when in Cape Town!
