“Great Ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

From walking in to ordering your meal to paying your bill, this restaurant gets five thumbs up. I like the fact that you can get a scrumptious healthy lunch and finish it in 30 minutes and get back to work. The fact that it is not too heavy on the pocket also makes it an ideal spot for the working class to enjoy their meal. Lovely place.

“Table 13 100/100”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

Table Thirteen is a hidden gem in Cape Town's Green Point area. Tucked away in Ebenezer St, behind the Victoria Junction Hotel, it offers creative, fresh food with a regular changing menu. Perfect for vegetarians, vegans, meat eaters and coffee lovers. Service can be a bit erratic, but the end result of the food and drink is always top class. A firm favourite of those who work/live in the area.

“Great Bistro food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

This place would be easy to miss. Just off Somerset Rd. down from the Victoria Junction Hotel (where you can park underground). Look for the white awnings, the small tables and umbrellas on the pavement. The food is always fresh and abundant and delicious. Excellent coffee too. Open for breakfast & lunch but check about dinner - only certain nights. Oh, and takeaways if you want a picnic! Close to town, Cape Quarter and V&A.

“Perfect Place for Delicious Food & Amazing Deserts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

Table Thirteen is one of my favorite restaurants in Cape Town and somewhat of a hidden gem. This is my 2nd review as I wanted to show how the place has stayed good. A lot of places in Cape Town start off well and then drop the quality. Table thirteen continues to be a great place.

Situated in a side street off the main road in Green Point it is opposite the Cape Town Traffic Department. Parking is a bit tricky so we normally try parking in the street behind or in the underground parking at the Protea next door.

The food is just amazing. You can choose from either a breakfast style dish (like smoke salmon and scrambled eggs) or a sandwich or they have a new concept which is deli-style dishes with a side order.

I went for the potato, corgette and mozarella tart with a side of incredible persian style rice. My wife had the same and my mother-in-law had a salmon sandwich with salmon, avo, ginger and wasabi mayo on rye bread (my normal order).

Desert is a selection of incredible cakes. I had my favourite chocolate orange.

Service is very personal and the restaurant is cosy. They sometimes have tables out front or there is a quaint courtyard where you can site outside.

My only complaint with table thirteen is that they are only open for lunch/brunch till 17h00 and only open on normal week days (not Sundays) which basically means I cant visit them often as I am at work most week days and dont go out on Saturdays.

All in all table thirteen is a great place for a light lunch with a client, friends or if you feel like lazing the day away on your laptop.

Would definitely recommend to visitors to the cape or Capetown.

“The Only Place To Eat when in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2010

Have been visiting T13 since it opened 18 months ago, it just gets better and better every time. There is so much passion & genuine caring about what comes out from the kitchen, good fresh ideas on a daily basis. With so many local restaurants loosing that caring touch after a few months Lara and her team are always welcoming and friendly, don,t be put off by the lack of parking around the area, its worth waiting for a space or getting a ticket, or why not walk, you will not be disappointed.
