Cape Town Festival

Atmosphere and good food is in abundance at Pigalle. We had a table set up on the balcony on a beautiful Cape Town evening. The service and food recommendations were spot on. Between the meals we were on the dancefloor enjoyoing the band that contributed to the fantastic evening.

The worst part about experiencing perfection is the knowledge that it can't be repeated. But from the second I parked my car 10 metres away from the restaurant door until we reluctantly departed 3 hours later, the entire evening was flawless. The greeting from the gorgeous hostess, the warmth of the maitre d', the friendliness of the barman as we... More

Where do I begin? I have so many good things to say about this restaurant! My partner and I visited for the first time last night and will definitely be back! Everything was perfect (a word I don't use lightly) from the warm reception and friendly well-informed staff, to the beautifully prepared and absolutely scrumptious meals. The first thing that...

We stumbled on this place because it was right across from our hotel. When we walked in we were immediately greeted and seated, and we were thrilled to find that a very talented music group was performing and that the waiting staff was so kind and attentive. We did not have to wait long for our food at all, and... More

An impromptu call on the evening was met with a shift reply that the earliest opening was at 9 pm. We arrived to be a greeted by very friendly staff who was quick to seat us and even suggest which seats to take so we could watch the live band playing over dinner. This was off to a great start....

Came to restaurant as it was close to hotel and had good reviews. Service was outstanding and the waiter who noticed we were tourists gave us good recommendations on the food and wine. The oysters, mussels, tiger prawns and lobster were all amazing. Everything seemed very fresh and the portion sizes were generous. Overall one of the best places for... More

Our hotel concierge recommended Pigalle. We weren't sure what to expect and when we arrived it appeared to be more of a club. The restaurant was fairly empty, since we took early reservation. We were seated at a very cozy table facing the stage (live music most nights) and took our drink order. The restaurant began to fill up and... More
