“Beautiful setting, but that's all”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Went to Tasca for dinner with a work colleague. I was disappointed. My steak was overcooked and like cardboard. I thought the restaurant overpriced. The service was lacking. Will not visit them again or recommend them

“Food doesn't taste of anything!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

To be fair a great location and waiting staff very attentive. Ordered a sirloin steak - arrived smothered in sauce - probably to hide the fact that none of food tastes of anything. The manager smiles, shrugs his shoulders and walks away - hey ho...

“Outside seating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This time we sat outside overlooking the harbour and the omnipresent Table Mountain gathering its tablecloth at dusk. Blankets and heaters if you required them and fast friendly service. Oysters and prawns were excellent with fine South African wine to accompany. What more could you want.

“Don't eat at Tasca in Cape Town”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Nice menu until the food arrives. Poorly prepared and tastes bad. The staff is nice and let down by the poor food. Don't waste your time or money.
