The other reviewers have it right---a great Cape Town restaurant experience. That's right, not just a good, but great experience. Good ambiance, food and service. That all there is to say!

The service here was attentive and if your waiter hadn't called straight over to your table on arrival then there would be another to welcome you and ensure that you have a drink on order. The food was delicious here, but on a Sunday evening you must be a jazz fan as that is the entertainment for the evening.

Fantastic service and a beautiful seafood platter good so well. Looks very unassuming from what you can see at street level but you get dropped off round the back to the grand entrance way and a opulent room awaits. Good live band and good atmosphere. Enjoyed!

Had a lovely dinner here with my wife. Everything was just perfect: Food, service and ambience was just fantastically good. Music does get a little bit loud after 21h00, but we enjoyed it...just maybe not for everyone. Music was very suitable. We had beef, springbok and salmon and every dish was cooked to perfection. Service was great as well. Definately... More

The food quality was exempary, we normally visit a place only once to enjoy different cullanry experiences. This was so good we visited twice. And to cap it... More

My wife and I had dinner at the Pigalle last week and both of us had seafood. The food was excellent and the entertainment great. The only slight criticism would be that the front of house person was a little unnterested in the tourist clients and we felt a bit rushed out the door despite it not being that late.... More
