“Pukka neighbourhood restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

very well reviewed on TA and we were staying close by so we gave it a go. Very nice neighbourhood restaurant with excellent service and food which is more sophisticated than the place looks. I would have preferred a slightly more sophisticated setting which the food easily merits but a really good meal for very little money so what's not to like?

“Excelent food, good price and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

I went to Millers, unfortunately on my last day in Cape Town. Staff is very good, and the owner comes to your table to tell you which are the dishes of the day. Food is absolutely perfect. I ate a fish with a lichee sauce, and my wife a fish soup and calamari with Moroccan Sauce. If I could, I would eat more times at Millers Thumb. You must go there.

“Incredible Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

This was our favorite restaurant on our trip - and the food was AMAZING!! We had the fish - and the Brazilian beef. The presentation was creative and we could have eaten here every single night. It was recommended by our hosts at An African Villa and the restaurant was beyond our expectations.

“Two thumbs up!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

My wife and I had dinner at Miller’s Thumb in early May, on a friend’s recommendation. When we called around 7pm to reserve for the same night (on a Friday night), the tables were full until 9 pm, but we were able to book for then. Jane, herself, one of the husband-wife proprietors, reviewed the menu selections with us and offered her recommendations. Solly, her husband, is the chef. They were very accommodating of our combined, gluten-free and lactose-free requirements. The restaurant is known for its fish dishes and we were not disappointed. Our meals, including the service, were excellent and the ambiance was casual and nice. Two thumbs up!

“Excellent Fish, Great Atmosphere, Good Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We received excellent service and the food is brilliant. If you like fish or want to taste how fish should be done this is the place. Unpretentious with a great vibe and atmosphere. The wine list is limited, but has good wines at a good price. The menu is also limited, but you should be here for the fish so you shouldn't need a long menu.

Even though we were here on a business dinner we wanted the vibe. It is not a quite place so dont expect this to be romantic or a place to discuss business. Rather a place to relax and enjoy your evening.
