What a place, a friend of ours who lives in Cape Town suggested we tried this place. We went for lunch, we were first in and last out. We loved all the food. We sat at the pass and talked to the chefs about the food, the wine was also very good. We did book this place a month in... More

The awe inspiring dishes never fail to impress! Try the beef cafe au lait, fish tacos, ceviche, beef tartare, crispy octopus, polenta chips, and the best chocolate fondant you will ever have!! We odered the new lamb dish on the menu (sad that the pork belly had disappeared off the menu) and were underwhelmed. The on-bone double cutlet presentation was... More

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 - glass and steel perched atop vintage grain silos of a yesteryear biscuit factory.... 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!
