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.

Excellent food, wonderful seafood - try the lobster thermidor of the Queen prawns! there is always a live band catering for the middle age group and a large dance floor. It is a huge restaurant but nearly always packed with lots of atmosphere and very glamorous - one of the few places where you can actually dress up, ladies! There... More

Pigalle was recommended to us by a friend as a good place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. It turned out to be an excellent choice - we were made to feel very welcome, chose a seafood platter to share at the manager's recommendation, found an excellent wine and enjoyed the musical entertainment. 3 courses and the wine came out...

Service fantastic, not many places I know of in Cape Town that are dinner and dance. Lovely jazz band. Food and service excellent. Dress smart. This is the place to go if you really want to treat someone special.

The food was well prepared and accommodated special requests. This meal was part of the package. Live music was mediocre.

Incredible evening spent at Pigalle. Steaks are huge and cooked to perfection. Good portion sizes and really friendly service. Would advise getting spruced up for this restaurant. Live jazz music was great and the dance floor was filled after dinner. My wife and I would highly recommend it.
