“When everything comes together”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

My first visit to this restaurant. I came there with high expectations as my experiences at Pigalle were always excellent. We were 3 couples and everyone's meal meal arrived on time and to their request. The sirloin on the bone was superb! We will certainly go back

“Brilliant new find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Went to NV-80 on a recommendation and it was a real win! From start to finish, the whole dinning experience is well thought out. The menu is simple, yet classy as is the wine choice. We had a carpaccio starter as well as calamari, the taste and flavours were excellent. For main, I had a rib eye and it was fantastic! The chocolate fondant and brandy ice-cream will really end your evening off on a sweet note.

“Been there twice, excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

I can't wait to take my friends, great atmosphere, service and beautifully cooked food.
They are very well staffed and you feel taken care of without being watched.
Recommend the Springbok, it was so tender, extremely well cooked and importantly, was allowed to rest before serving.

“Best oysters in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

We had the pleasure of enjoying a superb lunch at nv-80 last week. We were told by friends to try their oysters that they claimed were the best they had had for a long time.

We took their advise and ordered the oysters with Plettenvale Brut Rose MCC followed by a calamari and a prawn dish that was equally super.

Highly recommended. We will deffinately dine there again.

“Met ALL expectations- Food AND the Service!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Being a frequent traveller to Cape Town, many eateries are recommended between myself and my colleagues, NV-80 being one of them. I'm not one for reviews but as a frequent customer, this place deserves some major recognition. NV-80 has come to be my very favourite place to eat in CPT, with credit due to the fantastic service provided by the friendly, helpful staff. The food is on the absolute same level of high standards. The steak literally melts in your mouth! After eating steaks all over the world, this definitely wins hands down. I cannot wait to dine here again on my next trip and thank you to all the staff who play a part in the experience!
