Stopped in as I was waiting for a shop to open. Very good food. Extremely nice owner/waiter. He realized I was visiting Cape Town alone and we had a really nice conversation (didn't hurt that he was also very easy on the eyes. Ha.) He recommended a few dishes and I enjoyed each one. Definitely stopping in again when I'm... More

Fantastic meal sat on the terrace. Gorgeous African tapas - ostrich, chicken with polenta, fig salad and an incredible aubergine curry. Great service, lovely wine and extremely reasonable price. We'll definitely be back! We didn't book but it was pretty full and booking is definitely advisable!

There were 7 people in our group and the waiter accommodated us with each tapas dish so that we each had a taste. The food was well-presented with a variety of flavors that left you wanting more. We ordered around 10 dishes- some were duplicated so that we all had a taste of the tapas.. We shared 2 desserts- again... More

We found Fork purely by accident and it was one of the gastronomic highlights (and there were many) of our trip to South Africa. We spend a very pleasant couple of hours on the upstairs balcony dinning of African tapas and drinking False Bay Rose. The Ricotta Ravioli with a poached egg inside was truly amazing as were the Tiger... More

We've been to a number of Spanish tapas restaurants in the United States. Fork is African tapas. We followed the recommendations of our friendly waiter and were rewarded with delicious, diverse food. We did not think it was at all expensive,

Between two walking tours in downtown Cape Town, we stopped by Fork for lunch. The menu is vast and interesting. We chose four dishes based on recommendation from our waiter. Four was about the right amount for two people at lunch.

It's one of the better (and more expensive) restaurants in Cape Town, but absolutely great! Very polite staff and delicious food - you (only) get real tapas! Me and my wife finished 8 tapas without being to full. You have to make a reservation, even to get sure. Everything is delicious, but the white mousse is incredible!

My boyfriend and I visited Fork during our 4 night stay in Cape Town, our meal was fantastic, one of the best we have ever had! We had a very friendly and attentive waitress and every dish was served to perfection. When I struggled to eat my food with just a fork our waitress even offered me a knife. We... More
