“Another wonderful dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Walking distance from our hotel, Derwent House, was this lovely neighborhood restaurant. The hotel had made the reservations so we were seated immediately. The restaurant was cosy and warm, we were right by the fire place. They have an option for kids to make their own pizza and dessert which was so much fun for our daughter. I had the angel fish and it was devine would order again in a heartbeat. My son had chicken and mashed potatoes and loved it. The food was good, loved my g&t and my husband really enjoyed his wine, a good selection. The wait staff was great!! Really enjoyed this restaurant, had found it on Trip Advisor and was so glad that we booked a table! Highly recommend if you are looking for a cosy, family restaurant!!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The ostrich filets were delicious and very tender. The wine selection was very good and our waiter was attentive and knowledgable. We wish we had time to visit more than once.

“went two days in a row!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We went here both for dinner and lunch. It was soo good both times. Nice waiters and the food is very tasty. I would go back anytime! I had a linefish which was tasty. For the dinner we had a dinner party of 42 people. They had set up a three course meny for us, where we could choose from 4 different main courses. It all worked out great. I heard that the pasta was also a really good choice for this place. We had lunch here the next day (yeah it was that good)! I would go if I were you ;)

“fun and cool place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

It's a happening place and you can feel by the atmosphere. The service is very friendly and caring. The food is so good so we came back a second time for calamari. The meat is juicy and has very rich interesting flavors

“Popular for a good reason”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

A cold Tuesday night & we were looking for a meal close to our accommodation. They recommended Paradiso so we wandered down & found the place full, though fortunately with a table free. The three of us had the squid to start, then chicken, ostrich & beef fillet for mains. Perfectly prepared, delicious & great value. The staff were great, friendly, knowledgeable & efficient. We'll be back when next in Cape Town.
