We had a wonderful experience taking the Chef's Tour and Nina was spot on in her recommendation. The food was fantastic and the service was wonderful. We can't wait to go do it again.

Hadn't been here in over a year and we found that Peli Peli has lost some of its charm. It obvious has become a very sought out restaurant because there was a bit of chaos with people stacked up all over the place trying to get in. Food didn't seem to be up to the quality of the past and... More

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.
