Outstanding modern twist on tapas with 4 bite size tapas per plate to share (or not). Recommending to order 3-4 plates to start and then add on as you wish. All of those mouthfuls are delightfully balanced in taste and structure. Highly recommended are the ravioli with an egg yolk inside that just runs when you cut it bite into... More

While in Cape Town on holiday, we heard about Fork restaurant and took a group of 30 there. The service we received was excellent and the food was outstanding. The place had a great atmosphere and all the guests really enjoyed the evening.

My husband and I went here for dinner after finding that our initial first choices were fully booked. The staff were very accommodating and managed to find us a table despite them being busy. The food was absolutely delicious! The goats cheese on sundried tomato toasts were to die for, and the fillet steak on croutons with a red wine... More

My wife and I enjoyed a very good meal here. The Tapas were very tasty. We tried the ostrich, meatballs, rocket salad, cheese and spinach ravioli , very good wine and brownies for desert. Everything was excellent. Our server was super friendly, helpful and attentive. We will visit again while we are, that good!!

I went to the Fork by chance, when looking for a place for coffee and desert in Cape Town central. We were pleasantly surprised. Nice setting, friendly and efficient service and the warm toffee cake with cream is divine.

Fork has become our go-to restaurant on days when we are exploring the galleries and shops on Long Street and nearby. They have a very reasonable lunch special including a selection of 5 bites from their small plate menu but, since the prices aren't all that high for those of us from abroad, we usually choose from the regular menu....

We dined upstairs, inside and not on the patio. Cosy interior is "booth" type seating arrangement, as well as individual tables. The food is presented on platters and each individual gets a portion. There is a reasonable variety of choices but we would have preferred a wider selection. Prices do tend to escalate as the portions are small and the... More

Very good restaurant for value on Long Street in the Cape Town Central District - all tapas (or pinchos) were shareable (came as 4 servings) which made it very shareable for two people. Our waiter was helpful in ordering and service was good. Recommend the goat cheese and the peanut butter parfait dessert with strawberry jam. Had this and a... More
