Would give it 6 stars if I could!

Wow...the best meal we had in Cape Town. The place is a hidden gem; you will need a taxi but boy is it good. Our group had lamb, tenderloin and pasta and all was 100%! The recommended wine was wonderful too. The young lady who waited on us was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. We ate... read more

Not bad... The food is great, (bit expensive...) Been there so many times (since 2007), and I always found exactly the same menu. Quite boring I must say... For sure it's not the place where to go every week or month...because they always had the same dishes. If you prefer the quality instead of the quantity, give it a try!

Finding this place is a bit of a mess. Once you have found it, it clearly speaks volume. Amazing staff, decor old and rustic, with an Italian stallion flair. Bar area neat had great aperitifs and cocktails. My husband loved the downstairs area as did I. We sat in the corner, neatly tucked away with lovely table settings, bread arrived... More

Don't go to 95 Keerom. I've been to the restaurant a number of times over the last few years, and have consistently had an underwhelming experience. Always end up going back because it has 'premium' reputation. This is undeserved. Overpriced food, weird management, slightly 'off' service, zero ambiance and above all the afore mentioned over priced food is not worth... More

95Keerom definitely was better in the past. We were missing the special touch from the past. The food was uninspired, the decor is the same for the last 10 years or so. Chef Giorgio Nava doesn't show up anymore to explain the menu. Maybe he is just too busy with all the new Carne restaurants in Cape Town. It doesn't... More

We had a business dinner last Monday night at 95 Keerom Street, having not been back to 95 for a few years I was really excited, as it had been one of my favorites. The food was great, the service was friendly and professionally but the evening lacked a bit of atmosphere. Maybe it was because it was a Monday... More

The menu was authentic South African. We ate wildebeest, Springbok and Kudu. One of my friends who doesn't like this type of food had an Italian dish which was also excellent. The food and wine is very affordable.

Before you get to experience this restaurant you are required to confirm your booking with a signed email response and a credit card deposit. This includes committing to a minimum of each person consuming at least two courses.So picture this, you have a table of 8 pax you then have to caution them that they have to order two courses!...

After having a very good experience here in 2012 it was time to go back for a lovely night out. We where with a group of 5 and had been seated upstairs. We order all our starters, mains, wine and some water for the table. Starters came out good and where nice and tasty. For the mains one of my... More
