From start to finish this was a memorable experience. The decor and atmosphere are top notch. The live jazz band ads that extra touch of elegance. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, definitely among the best service I have received. The food was simply delicious. Multiple flavors mix perfectly with the springbok, it is a taste journey in every... More

My husband and I were looking forward to an extravagant evening at one of Cape Town's finest restaurants. It was a Valentine's Day dinner with a pre-purchased set menu which set us back quite a few pennies, as you can imagine! We had both been there in 2011 and I was familiar with the restaurant before this time too, having... More

My second visit and my wife's first, the establishment delivered an amazing experience with the old world feeling that is so seldom felt anymore. Pigalle is a dining experience, not just a meal.

I cannot praise the food here enough. The scallops were divine, the shellfish platter moist and tasty, I could have eaten it all over again even though it was huge, lovely mellow live music, great service....what a lovely evening out. All I can say is GO GO it's worth every penny.

We've been to Pigalle's about 4/5 times in the last two years and it remains a special and upmarket place to go to for dinner and dance. On Thursday night there were a couple of birthday parties and mostly a younger crowd. Band played some softer jazz numbers earlier on but when the young crowd hit the floor the beat... More

We really like the style of the restaurant, which is contemporary with a burlesque influence and it is a big, open space. Whilst the music wasn't the best live music I've ever heard and the food wasn't the best I've tasted it actually works really well together - we had a thoroughly enjoyable night and a really good meal. I... More
