Jazz live music, dance floor, great service and great food! A definite must! We went for a romantic valentines dinner. I love fine dining but being pricey don't go often. This was one of the best dates and meals I had -the food was so great I totally overate. The steak was so soft and tasty and the prawn/shell fish... More

Enjoyed a fish platter - lovely food, well cooked and reasonably priced. Service was good - very attentive. Restaurant quite big but not impersonal. Had resident band and guest band on the night we visited - great entertainment which could be enjoyed whilst eating and chatting. Great dining experience.

Have been to Pigalle several times and the service is fantastic and the food is amazing. Best of all is the live music and dancing after a fantastic meal. After dinner cocktails / whiskey and a sigar in the sigar lounge rounds off the evening.

Went to Pigalle on our first night in Capetown. It's the first stop on our honeymoon. Everybody was very friendly, great music, the decor is modern but the live band gives it a vintage feel. The seafood platter for two was amazing as well as the oysters and scallops! Too be honest everything was great! Definitely would return.

I went to Pigalle in Cape Town together with colleagues during attending a conference. We entered and were welcomed individually. We took an aperitif at the bar and were then led to the table. As a starter I had some oysters, which were of very good quality. Then I took the shellfish platter and was not disappointed: One lobster, two... More

The ambience is slightly "great gatsby" and the venue is perfect for anything from Corporate lunches to Bachlorette parties or romantic dinners for 2. The food is very good and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Our hotel, Victoria Junction (Protea group) recommended we try this restaurant as its right across the road. Reservation made. The entrance is around the back so a short walk ensued. My husband wasnt really dressed for the setting. Our watron, PRISCA, was informative,funny and made our night. We ordered the wine she recommended, Trinchado starters and for the main we... More

Pigalle is for when you really want something smart. It extremmely large and a bit stiff. The service is slow for drinks and good for food. The food is excellent, I can recommend the Trinchado starter. It has a Jazz feel and music, live or background. Not for a party or casual, but more for the smart business dinner. Overall... More

Going to a place to eat with a group of about 100 people has its own challenges. Not least for the restaurant as we could choose between a number of dishes for each course. Pigalle's food was excellent, plentiful and everybody was served quickly. The live band took some music requests from us and as we stormed the dance floor... More
