Wonderful Restaurant! Great Venue, live jazz band, awesome food! The staff were efficient and was well run by management. I had the salmon and my wife had the fillet and the food was excellent! The sorbet and creme brûlée rounded off a perfect evening! The music was not too loud during our meal just loud enough to create a wonderful... More

Had the opportunity to share a meal with some friends at this great restaurant. The ambiance was nice the music was just right during dinner. As the night moved on the music progressively increased which was nice. I ordered the Kingklip and man o man it was simply amazing. On my next trip I will return, the owner came by... More

I booked this for my partners birthday. So different to other restaurants we had eaten at in Cape town. Live jazz and quite traditional in side but beautiful. The food was out of this world and we felt like we had had a real treat. They even decorated the plate with happy birthday. Not advisable to wander on the street... More

We walked from the Sugar Hotel to Pigalle and had a very nice dinner...prawn and avocado salad, beef fillet with Balsamic vinegar sauce...live music on stage--a talented jazz/pop group at just the right volume. Retro ambiance. Highly recommend.

Shellfish is their speciality. The prawns were great as was the service. Real five star. But, the music could be turned down a little. I like loud music but not so much while trying to hold up a conversation across a table (perhaps I am just getting old). The prices are a bit steep and the prawns nacional, while tasty,... More

Read a friend's review of Pigalle Restaurant on Trip Advisor, saw the picture of prawns - knew we HAD to go. It was everything my husband and I had hoped for : fantastic service. It was really over the top. The prawn was as good as it looked in the picture, even better. Live music. We were in another world... More

Invited to friend's birthday celebration the other evening and had the ribs (was a rib steak/chop), and was amazing. Tender steak, really well prepared. Would recommend their meals any time!

Our family dinner was made so special by the excellent food, service and live music. We danced and chatted and savoured the seafood platters...wow! Our waiter, John, was attentive and professional. A great night all round.

This restaurant is a MUST for all. I'd been here before for a birthday party, which had a set menu. The delicious food prompted me to recommend it for a special family dinner. The A La Carte menu far exceeded my already high expectations from the birthday pary and the food even more so. Everyone at our table was transported... More

Make no mistake - it is not cheap. In fact, some items are scandalously expensive, BUT you cannot fault their food. At all. Whoever cooks, cooks with passion. Excellent wine list and by far the coldest G&T you can find (heaven on a warm summer evening). The band was mildly good on the night we visited, but the music selection... More
