Oh my goodness. Peli Peli is the epitome of a destination restaurant. The food was amazing. Please let me recommend the Chef's Four Course Meal. It was $65/person and it changed my life. I felt the Hugenot (blue cheese, cherry, and raspberry sauce over a buttery filet) was the pinnacle of the meal, but please don't think the rest of... More

We have dined here 8-10 times & have always enjoyed the very creatively prepared food. The wait staff is quite attentive & knowledgeable about the diverse South African cuisine. The menu prices are expensive, so we save this restaurant for special occasion dining.

We took friends here for a special birthday lunch. Both the food and service were very good. It is a bit pricey (but we knew that going in). South African dishes were all well explained by our waitress. It would be worth the time to go to the website before going to see the different dish options. We each ordered... More

The food at Peli Peli is simply delicious !! Too bad that they say us on the "last table" in a dark corner.... Service was excellent....attitude of the hostess when I complained of the location of out table...very poor. She put a face like "I don't really care".... But, other than the hostess' attitude, the service by our waitress was... More

It's ok. I didn't love it. I'm glad we went, but I doubt we'll go back. The first time we tried to go there was a 2 hour wait so we went to a wine bar pretty much next door, and I have to say we liked it'd better. If you live in the area, go for it. If you're... More

Peli Peli should not be even classified a restaurant, it is entertainment of the highest quality for your senses. I have become a missionary for Peli Peli, trying to start a religion. Everything was over the top excellent, I think the straws even tasted good! Do your self a favor and put this Peli Peli on your bucket list. Sea... More
