We truly enjoyed wonderful supper experience.David our waiter was superb and witty.The benefit of such restaurant is that you can pace yourself and not get up and feel bloated.The high tripadvisor rating is fully justified

We happened into this place for lunch and had their lunch special, a plate with 5 different dishes accompanied by a glass of wine or beer and coffee. Each of the dishes was absolutely delicious. Service was gracious. Highly recommend.

Four of us went for a light meal. Most items were served four to a plate so that worked perfectly for sharing. They have a great variety of unique tapas and they were all delicious. The staff was very accommodating and the ambiance was nice.

Went there in the afternoon for a early dinner by myself. The food was beautiful and would probably visit again if returning to Cape Town someday.

Delicious tapas. Nice feel. Friendly staff. Had to wait for 10 minutes even though we had booked...only reason why less than 5 stars

Fork is unbelievably good. Every single dish we had was terrific, with super interesting flavors. The staff--especially the "waitress" who seemed to make the whole place work--was excellent. We followed her advice and didn't regret it for a minute. Her wine recommendation was also perfect....More

Yes for sure. And staff are very helpful pointing out suitable options or modifying them. They also cater to lactose intolerance, gluten free, etc. I had the lunch set but don't eat lamb and they just switched that out
