Great food, great atmosphere

Really enjoyed my evening here. the food was absolutely excellent and the atmosphere created by the live music left everyone in good spirits. Price wise, this place is very reasonable, particularly for European tourists.

I come here every time I am in Cape Town and it never disappoints. This time I had the scallops to start which were lovely, the baby King Klip for main which was enormous and tasted amazing and then the chocolate fondant which was delicious. They had a live band playing low key tunes and people were dancing which was... More

Best seafood I have had in Cape Town. Gorgeous upscale restaurant with a romantic atmosphere and thrilling live music. Be sure to visit the dance floor as not many restaurants in Cape Town incorporate their dance floors as effortlessly as Pigalle does. Decadent desserts are a sign of of passionate cooking from start to finish. Good variety of wines available.

The service was excellent but the food was terrible. Our lobster was old and overcooked. The music was bland, and no one was listening. Why bring in musicians -- good or bad -- if everyone talks nonstop during the performance.

This restaurant is the perfect choice if you like seafood and jazz.The food is very very good and worth the money spent on it and the service is perfect. The seafood platter was perfect, except that they destroyed the lobster thermidor with too much blue cheese (or so it would seem). The live music was very good and classy. Pleas... More
