I have visited this place now 3 times over the last few years and not once was it a memorable food experience. The food is very average and the service nothing to remember.

I don't think I can take Pigalle too seriously. It is what it is and go with an open mind. It is cavernous in it shier size. Think ball room on a cruise liner! Now once you have accepted this enjoy the good service and very good food. Then if you are up for it dust off the cobwebs from... More

This large restaurant features a live band and small dance floor. Excellent seafood and steaks including local game. Seafood Platter and Springbok both excellent. Attentive staff and management.

Or is it ambiance and seafood? Pigalle is absolutely lovely. A 5 piece jazz band and singer, and the highest quality table settings. We were served by Valentine, who could not have been more helpful.
