We've been frequent patrons of Peli Peli for years. Not only is the cuisine delicious but the service was always great and the overall customer experience was spectacular. Starting with the story behind Chef Paul's love of cooking, the intentional design of the restaurant, to the explanation of how to properly enjoy each dish and at what time during your... More

We sat outside and had dinner and drinks. Everything was excellent! The waitress took time to explain the best wine for us, she went over the menu in detail.

I had heard a lot about this restaurant. I had read some pretty good reviews. Friends had been there and had nice things to say. So, when our neighbors invited us to go, we said, sure, why not? We had wanted to try it out, so perfect opportunity. The location is a little awkward, being in the back of a... More

This restaurant is unlike any other I have ever visited. The atmosphere is warm, dim lighting, sometimes a jazz trio is playing. The focal point of the restaurant is the giant banyon tree sculpture in the middle of the dining room, and the dim (not dark) lighting in the restaurant really calls attention to it - not that you could...

The food was fantastic and the wine list had a great South African selection, which is uncommon. I had the brilliant taste of South Africa beef dish with 6 separate sauces.. It was divine. Since nice pinotage wines were sampled and I started off with the biltong. Here they got the flavour just right though it wasn't as dry add... More
