My love for fish is never-ending, and as fish has now moved to being a luxury item on most grocery bills, enjoying fish is left for special occasions, or at least good fish. With the perceived reputation and price of fish on the menu, I would expect a decent cut well prepared. I specifically asked this time that a decent... More

I had a meal with my uncle on this restaurant, however had never gotten to write a review. It surely is the best upmarket restaurant I ever had, and the meal and atmosphere was really something. I was very impressed by their professionalism and their friendliness. I can surely say it was the best meal I ever had and I... More

An odd place, this. The surroundings are glorious—a beautiful interior, carefully and sensitively designed, and a warm welcome. And it's filled with lots of smart, middle-aged people having a wonderful time. I was fooled by the name into assuming that it was a French restaurant. It isn't. And this is one of the odd bits of the experience: the menu... More

A few years ago I walked out of this eating place never wanting to return. I didn't. Until last week. My reluctance was transformed to a "restaurant-rescue"! Vasco, exceptional service, and outstanding food (preparation and delivery) provided the key. Honesty about what was available, advice-according-to-tastes, and even a "new" Pinotage, paved the way for a gourmet splendour one would expect... More

I was lucky enough to secure a reservation at Pigalle during restaurant week 2014. The reservation system is great. I added a diner to the reservation and it was no problem, got an update notification and a reminder the night before. The evening was perfect, they catered for my mom who uses a walker and offered to remove it for... More

This is an old favourite. I haven't been for a while and wasn't disappointed. We went for a friends birthday and had a fantastic evening. The food and service are always great.

Pigalle has easy access and offers a great place to eat both seafood and meat. Both are excellent. The staff is very customer minded and makesl that you get an unforgettable evening. Especially the started our waiter organised for our venue (oysters platter and huge grilled tiger prawn platter) was excellent. We will be back !
