First night in Cape Town after a very long flight and thought Italian would be a safe bet. Glad I was right. The restaurant was modern and stylish, and the food was perfect. I will def. return.

Loved this place hubby had the three medallions and loved them, I has the gnocchi and it was so so so good, cheesy and warm it was comfort food to a T. Our waiter was legit Italian and it made the atmosphere even better.

When I try to make a reservation for a group of guests at this restaurant, its reservation desk insists I must order all the food for my guest from a limited choices menu 4 days before we come, which consists of 4 set menus only. This awkward reservation policy totally limits my guests' freedom to choose the food this restaurant... More

The food at 95 is always fresh and prepared with care and flare. The fish dishes are excellent, and the selection of carpaccios inventive and delicious.

95 Keerom Street remains the best Italian restaurant in Cape Town, if not South Africa. The food is innovative and tasty, the service is very professional and fun. Wine selection is good and well-priced. A must-visit in Cape Town, always full as well, book ahead.

A wonderful venue and great atmosphere. The service was impeccable from the minute you walk through the door. The carpaccio was excellent as was the T-bone steak for two. Desserts were great as well. A cosy area out back to enjoy a cigar. Not too expensive either. Well worth a visit.

My Partner and I asked one of his Local connections to recommend a great restaurant near our hotel. Ironically, 95 Keerom is directly across the street from Carne, another GREAT Cape Town restaurant. This night it was just the two of us however and 95 Keerom met our needs precisely. When we arrived we were greeted promptly and asked if... More

Italian restaurants come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, but 95 Keerom is definitely a contemporary Italian restaurant with a solid core Italian menu focused on simple cooking. Why? I think it's because they really focus on procuring the best ingredients. I was really enjoying the meal, and the manager came to asking me how everything was going. I... More

this restaurant is bit off the long street and that too at a dead end . so in the night this might feel intimidating especially in south africa . once inside , it is great ambience , excellent wine list . the servers recommendations were very good for both food and wine .

It's nice . A for atmosphere, definitely. Love the interior and the energy of the place but I've certainly had better Italian in Cape Town. Not something I'll remember and perhaps not a large enough selection, which wouldn't even be noticed if the food was slightly more than average. Not to say I didn't enjoy it, but not thoroughly.
