My girlfriend and I came here with an open mind and we were highly impressed. After reading some of the reviews I really wanted to experience it for myself. If you understand 'Tapa's' style dining you will be highly impressed. Quality of food and service was second to none. For an experience I... read more

The Pot Luck Club has an amazing view of the Cape Town Harbour. The atmosphere is great and the staff explained how everything worked and were very helpful. We chose six or so dishes and the food was excellent - the only problem was the food came out in dribs and drabs and we never knew what we were getting... More

Having booked six weeks in advance for my birthday, I had high expectations. The food was beautiful. Everything was delicious, and we couldn't pick a favourite. Our waiter was excellent, and the gentlemen that delivered our food were informative without being pompous. We'd definitely go back. For the quality of food, service and atmosphere, The Pot Luck Club is excellent... More

Top class restaurant though the tapas nature of the food and the consequential requirement to mix and match is tiring and will get dated soon enough. To be fair, the food was exquisite. As was the service which was seriously attentive (though not of the fussy variety) and very well informed on the food servings and indeed the wine list.... More

I loved the vibe and the food was outstanding. The best meal I have ever had at a restaurant! My sister was visiting from overseas and treated my family to this amazing experience, because it can get quite pricey for locals. I'm so glad that I had an opportunity to visit this outstanding restaurant.

For a taste of the quality of the food at Test Kitchen without the heftier price tag (or the difficulty in attaining a reservation), try Pot Luck Club in the Old Biscuit Mill. The restaurant works on a small plates concept. You write down your selections on an order form and let the staff take care of the rest. Unlike... More

A comfortable unstufy venue serving delicious tasty fare in an environment which is light comfortable and with a wonderful roof top view. Each course was delicious and not overburdened with too many flavours at once. I loved the open kitchen and enjoyed watching the preparations of the able young chefs. Definitely worth a visit and return

We had dinner here with my daughter & husband from London recently and as they are both 'foodies' we wanted to treat them to a good dinner ... well this restaurant exceeded our expectations ten fold! The food was excellent and the service outstanding. Our waiter for the evening was knowledgeable, friendly, and incredibly efficient! Well done Pot Luck Club,... More
