We have been frequenting pigalles in Cape Point for a good couple of years now and each time we are there we are never disappointed! The service is fantastic - we are always made to feel special, the food is delicious and the band is awesome! A great place for couples to enjoy a romantic dinner and dancing night out!

Portion size is large. Service is excellent. Its a large venue with a relatively small area for dancing. They have a live band. Every time i have been its... More

For a fantastic night out of dinner, dancing to a full band and singer, very good service and excellent food. A little pricey but well worth it.

I expected to make a reservation as this restaurant is ranked 15 out of 864 in Cape Town. However, I was delighted when the maitre d', Warren, found us a table for two. He explained that the restaurant was Portuguese owned and that they were lucky to be able to offer live jazz. In the large restaurant the music created... More

a Monday night in Cape Town, our last night of a wonderful 10 days. The four piece band gave a relaxed and rhythmical background of gentle jazz. The welcome from Warren and his team was the perfect first impression. Our waiter suggested some cocktails, and we started with 2 marguerites, beautifully presented with salted rims and lime wedge. He came... More

Liked everything. The owner himself walks among the guests and has a chat with them. Asks about the menu, the food and so on. The food was also very delicious. Though there were no oysters, the scallops replaced them (were offered by the owner, the menu did not have it). The band playing is very delicate and not loud at... More

This popular and large restaurant in Greenpoint continues to serve very good seafood consistently well and represents the good value for the best Crayfish Thermidor I have eaten in Cape Town in over 20 years - even at R380.00 a pop. Good Calamari, Linefish and Malva Pudding. Well worth a visit.
