“Popular ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

This restaurant a probably one of the better ones on the strip, the prices are a bit outrageous, but I suppose your paying for the beautiful view.
The food is good and it's always packed with tourists and holiday goers.

“Lovely Calamari and nice location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

I went here for a cocktail and a meal during the afternoon. I had grilled Calamari and it was very very nice. The cocktail was also great and our server was very chatty and attentive. I would go here again.

“Average food, exorbitant prices”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

We went to this restaurant for lunch, each ordering from the daily recommendations which were fairly standard items like surf & turf, kingklip, etc. However, when the bill came, the prices were more than double even the most expensive main course on the menu - a blatant rip off. As an example, expect to pay R380 for 200g steak and 2 tiny prawns. Furthermore, the food can be described as mediocre at best while presentation and service is below average.

“Pleasantly surprised!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

I am not a big fan of the restaurants on the Camps Bay strip, so when a friend insisted that we have pre-theatre dinner at Paranga I was very reluctant. The service was efficient and professional, the cocktails very good, and the food delicious. I had a t-bone that was perfectly cooked, tender and juicy. Both my companions were raving about their meals as well. We were seated inside - a table outside would have made the experience even better as there are some great views. I will definitely be back.

We are really looking forward to your next visit and perhaps next time we can sort out with a table on the terrace to savor in the beauty of Camp's Bay!

We hadn't booked but turned up a bit later so got a table and had a fantastic meal. The tuna was sublime.
