I liked the idea of small dishes that you could share amongst the table, because you could try different taste. The ambiance is good, though a bit noisy. I also think the dishes were a bit over priced, but the overall experience was good.

The restaurant is on the edge if quite a rough area which kind of adds to the experience. When we arrived the taxi drive through the security gate and the directed us to get in lift of the 1970's office building the restaurant is located in! Feeling a bit nervous we took the lift and when the doors opened into... More

The Pot Luck Club was a great culinary experience!! Even though the portions are small they were all great. Great flavours are thrown together to keep your mouth watering all through the experience. With great views all around of the city this is a must for anyone visiting Cape Town. Even though it is a bit expensive, you should treat... More

Being my first outing this obviously very trendy restaurant in Cape town, I will give it a 7 out of 10. The food and atmosphere was excellent with new and excitign tastes flowing out of the kitchen. I enjoyed the idea of smaller portions and sharing it with a group makes it a very sociable evening. The prices are however... More

Small portions with a pot luck theme does not seem to be a very good idea. We were a team of 8 and it seemed very expensive to order all the plates in multiple so that every one of us could have a taste. The best thing I took away from this was the absolutely fantastic view of the sun... More

My wife and I went to Pot Luck for our last dinner in Cape Town. We very much enjoyed our experience. The top floor of the old biscuit mill has great views of the city and the food was excellent. There's also a nice wine list. The portions are relatively small so we ended up having to order more during... More

The ambiance is brilliant. The food is great. Tried a few things on the menu and each one was as good as the other. The whole concept of sharing and trying out different items on the menu is brilliant. Loved the fish tacos, the Korean fried chicken, smoked beef fillet and the Asian style beef tar-tare. Absolutely scrumptious!!!

Not sure what all the hype is about. The food is mediocre at best and very expensive. We ordered all the dishes as recommended by our waiter and other than the tasty sauce on the fillet nothing was particularly special. We ate several times at the Chefs Warehouse and for a third of the price you get way better food... More
