“Great food and great entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

My first visit to this restaurant resulted in a lovely evening. The food was very good, I had the scallops for starters and norwegian salmon for mains. My husband had the escargot for starters and baby kingklip for mains. All were cooked to perfection, tasty and decent size portions. The fact that the restaurant has a dance floor and a band was an added bonus. It was lovely to see patrons of all ages get up and dance. Our waiter whose name is Admire, was very knowledgeable regarding the menu and didn't rush us to eat and leave. In fact we spent about 4 hours over dinner and although the bill was quite pricey, it was really worth it. We intend to visit again in the not too distant future.

“overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

I have visited this place now 3 times over the last few years and not once was it a memorable food experience. The food is very average and the service nothing to remember.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Superb food. The owners have been producing superb ambience and meals since 1980. Pigalle's is open for lunch, but it is at its best in the evenings, where great live music accompanies fantastic food, with great service.
