My dearest and best friend invited my daughter and I to this restaurant for the celebration of her 50th birthday together with her family.The place is rather difficult to find at night because the entrance is actually around the back.There is a sign in Somerset Road but it is not lit up so one wastes a lot of time driving...

What spoilt the evening for me was when my guest requested TAP WATER and was brusquely refused. Pay for water only Mineral water that is. High prices High quality High value. Music was most listenable

My first visit to this restaurant resulted in a lovely evening. The food was very good, I had the scallops for starters and norwegian salmon for mains.

I have visited this place now 3 times over the last few years and not once was it a memorable food experience. The food is very average and the service nothing to remember.

the atmosphere was incredible, there was a live band playing while we had dinner and even though we where so close to the band the music was not so over powering that we had to raise our voice to speak. the food was lovely. its very upmarket. the dress code is formal. no takkies etc.

Superb food. The owners have been producing superb ambience and meals since 1980. Pigalle's is open for lunch, but it is at its best in the evenings, where great live music accompanies fantastic food, with great service.

I don't think I can take Pigalle too seriously. It is what it is and go with an open mind. It is cavernous in it shier size. Think ball room on a cruise liner! Now once you have accepted this enjoy the good service and very good food. Then if you are up for it dust off the cobwebs from... More
