We stopped for lunch here between hop on hop off bus tours and had the excellent lunch offer of five pinchos with a glass of wine and cup of coffee for R95. They were all interesting and very good -excellent value

Excellent food. However, no WiFi, which is annoying as tourist when you need a reliable Uber Taxi, therefore 4/5 stars.

Modern and vibrant cuisine in the heart of Cape Town. This tapas bar provides a large variety of good quality bites with exotic local meats and fishes being a speciality. Cape Town is alive with good restaurants. The Fork is certainly to be recommended.

Delicious tapas style African fusion food at reasonable prices! Good place to try game - we had ostrich and Kudu tapas which went down very well with a couple of glasses of good Pinotage! Good, attentive service. Would highly recommend this place! The area seemed a bit dodgy in the night so would recommend taking an Uber rather than driving.

What makes a restaurant other than food and service. Great atmosphere great food. 6 people sharing the entire tasting menu without skipping a course and actually only spending roughly R400 pp with wine. Not bad for a Monday dinner outing. Cost effective. Value for money and most definitely great service. Thank you Sharon

Re-visited the Fork, and found exactly what I remeber. They didn't have prawns, which was a bit of surprise, but delivered on all other fronts. Kudu was amazing. Vegetarian options were a bit short on offer, but it is worth every cent. Will come back again

We were referred this place since the one we had chosen was full booked. It was a good choice at the end of the day. The place is small and can be noisy but the staff is very nice, it's open longer than other restaurants (we booked for 9pm) and the food is good. Tapas mostly go from 50 to... More

Dear Bibips, We are delighted you ended up dining at Fork and that it worked out well for you at the end of the day. We do keep our kitchen open later than many neighbourhood restaurants as many guests enjoy visiting post- theatre for a selection of small plates and some wine. The atmosphere does generally get a little charged... More

We came here as part of a large group. We received excellent service and great tapas. The service was quick and we were never left looking for a waiter or waitress. We thoroughly enjoyed our night and we will most certainly be back.
