Visited for my birthday and was not disappointed. The food was excellent - seafood bisque and chicken livers to start, then a seafood platter and the kingclip for mains. All the food was excellent and so was the service. Loved the band and the music being played, not too loud whilst having dinner, and then the dance floor was packed... More

First timer at Pigalle and not disappointed, great food and a nice ambience with live music which add to the overall experience, shellfish platter was exceptional and given the demise of Panama Jacks they should be well positioned if they keep up the quality. It's a big place with a lot of covers and the service can be a little... More

This restaurant does not spare an effort to please. I celebrated my birthday there and had really a nice evening. The food was so delicious and catered for all tastes. The music was enchanting and the staff were very friendly and informative. I always leave with the intention of visiting again, this restaurant is one of Cape Town gems.

Best king kilp with lemon butter sauce. Entertainment was great. Band played a 80s mix of music great variety and easy to dance to. Ambience of the place was as good as the food! We were treated like VIP's. I'll be back.

Like I have said - I'm not a foodie, so... We went for a dinner organized by the group that organized the conference we attended. Ambience was nice - I loved the chandeliers! The food was nice, I suppose but somehow t I thought it would be much nicer - maybe because it was a "formal" restaurant and didn't allow... More

Pigalle is our favourite in Johannesburg and when friends took us out in Cape Town we were delighted. All I say that the Cape Town branch has such a lovely vibe with live band and the lovely décor. We are really missing out of this great atmosphere in Joburg. The food was excellent and the service was great.

Whenever we are in Cape Town, we make a plan of visiting Pigalle. Their seafood is always good. The shellfish is their signature dish and it shows. The seafood platter is a solid recommendation. Of course, if you don't want seafood, the alternatives are also available and very good too. Service never disappoints. What makes Pigalle special is the Jazz... More

The decor and atmosphere in this restaurant is 'classy' and one feel special when you enter the restaurant. The food is excellent. I usually order a steak. There deserts are divine. The staff are efficient and one can depend on good service. The music is very good and there is a small dance floor. This is a place to visit... More

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
