The early bird gets the table when it comes to Cafe Caprice. One of the most popular places on the promenade. Best get in early if u want a table outside to view the magnificent sunset!

Unfortunately, we are unable to comment on food or drinks here as the staff in the once love Cafe Caprice has not shown any intention whatsoever of serving us any ... Went there for a sundowner as we had fond memories of great guys delivering excellent and attentive service, which seems to be all gone. The sun went down without... More

Situated right on the road facing the sea Cafe Caprice offers fantastic food and lots of drink options from cocktails, wines, local and overseas Beers. Good chilled out music too and staff were very helpful. Definitely worth eating at. We had lunch there and views are amazing around lunchtime

We ordered what was suppose to be 'Castle Draught as advertised on their menus. My interpretation of a Castle Draught is 500ml glass of beer (as served in all other restaurants & pubs) but Cafe Caprice advertises their Draughts but you only get 300ml which is the equivalent of a small bottle beer. When I told the barman he laughed... More

Probably for the younger below 30 crowd.. Party place.. People come here from the day at camps Bay Beach and settle here after sunset.. Though being full of other cafés, caprice stands out as it is usually full.. We didn't find a table at first, but eventually settled.. Good place overall

Cafe Caprice combines artisan cocktails, a cafe-style menu, relaxing lounges and sidewalk seating to experience the epitome of Cape Town's cosmopolitan social scene. Situated directly across from Camps Bay Beach at 37 Victoria Road, open 7 days a week since 1999, it is a home for many Cape Townians and a must visit destination for tourists.

Camps Bay beach is the ultimate sunset viewing spot and Cafe Caprice provides the perfect backdrop, as DJ's fill the space with laid back music from Thursday to Sunday with a deep, chilled house soundtrack.

Cafe Caprice - a landmark on the Camps Bay promenade and an indelible part of the Cape Town bar and entertainment scene
