This is undoubtedly our favourite restaurant in Cape Town. Everything on the menu is superb. The waiters are super duper attentive & the sea food is to die for, especially the Lobster Thermidor. The live band is amazing.

My wife and I split a seafood combination that was out of this world. Don't miss the lobster Thermidor one of the best we ever had. Overall it was the... More

Went to this restaurant for the first time for supper. Food was good and the service fantastic! This is a place where you can relax and enjoy live music with great band. Although very pricey it is well worth the money spent. Great place for business and social.

I think we were probably a little unlucky. Pigalle is a big, well turned out and glitzy restaurant with excellent live music (at least the Thursday night we went). It sort of reminds you of being in Las Vegas, which is pretty cool and different in CT. Unfortunately, when we walked in the apparent manager was having a flip out... More

The whole experience felt top of the line and exquisite food. I had the lobster, shrimp plate. It was Devine. My boyfriend had the steak. It was a large portion and juicy. The spinach and mushroom sauce was superb. My mash potatoes were excellent, esp with the mushroom sauce. My bf complained his had too much garlic, no complaints here!

Pigale offes a lovely evening out as a dine and dance venue. Live music and a large dance floor. The food is excellent espcially for those who love seafood platters, large portions, the deserts are definatly worth a try.
