We had a lovely, relaxed lunch at Paranga on a beautiful, clear winter's day. The waiters are all friendly and professional - the services really was top notch. I had three starters instead of starters and main; all three dishes (prawn tian, Cajun dusted calamari and tuna tartare) were beautifully presented and well seasoned. The calamari and prawns were cooked... More

We had dinner here on a weeknight. Nice enough but was somewhat lacking in atmosphere... We had the winter set menu - starter and main course were tasty, but both desserts were disappointing. Good selection of wines. Probably a better atmosphere in the day time with beach views and more customers.

Had lunch here which was incredible! So beautiful and relaxing. I had the paranga's salad and kingclip. Salad so fresh and the fish was cooked to perfection. Cocktails were great too!

Used to be a favorite of mine with its great location on the Camps Bay sea front. Highlight of the evening was a large bold rat appearing over my shoulder emerging from a gap in the interior stone wall. My husband went really quiet and i could see something was awry, he said "there is a huge rat coming over... More

I was here in June 2016 with my sister and brother in-law and food was very good. I had King Clip and fries + desert, was truly good.

This place must have a really good chef. Every plate that came out was outstanding. Sweet corn soup was very very good and the chicken and mushroom risotto was excellent. I really do recommend this place. The staff were attentive and friendly.

Always a little sceptical of taking taxi drivers advice on restaurants but the location looked unbeatable, the welcome we received was super friendly and the menu looked promising. Turned out to be a great meal - lovely seafood washed down with a bottle Creation SB recommended by our waitress but not on the menu Make sure you go for sunset... More

The food and overalll experience at Paranga were top notch. Stopped by twice, once for a drink in the afternoon and once for dinner. Being able to sit and see the ocean is perfect for vacation. Highly recommend.

I met some business associates for a fine dining experience and some quiet business chat. Relaxing ambiance with professional waitering service. The food and wines were excellent. The music was soft and background. Great for catch up chatting with great views of the the Camps Bay beachfront. Seafood is their specialty and the sushi & sashimi was good. Acoustics are... More
