I don't want to be too harsh - because they were by far the friendliest restaurant we visited. Someone who seemed like a manager or owner checked on us at least twice - we had two waitresses checking on us. We were seated by the dance floor. I thought the vocalist was very good - the waitress thought she was... More

We had asked for a nice, but informal restaurant at our hotel,and were directed here. The entrance made us hesitate as it looked very up-market and formal, but once inside we were relieved that we were not underdressed (albeit marginally...!). Food is good, both fish and meat; live music created nice relaxed atmosphere. The volume that the band produced was... More

Firstly , the atmosphere and decor was great. The live band definitely gave off a good vibe. I was disappointed by the food though.We had choices off the Winter menu. The prawn salad was not bad. The chops were only so-so and the creme caramel was nothing to get excited about. From such an upscale restaurant, i expect more.

We wanted a change from Cape Grace Hotel and the V&A Waterfront restaurants as the latter can be very crowded and tables are very close together. Our concierge checked if we liked jazz and recommended Pigalle. It was really good to go to a restaurant with good space around the table and listen to live jazz whilst we ate. Our... More

This restaurant was just across the street from our hotel so we decided to try them out on our last night in Cape Town. It was a bit difficult to find the entrance, and the restaurant was very large with live music yet it was not very crowded at all, which surprised us. The seafood was good, however some of... More

Great food (as usual), lovely jazz band, and really cool cigar lounge. Staff are friendly, helpful and efficient - the prawns were outstanding :-)
