It was our last day in Cape Town and after we had returned our hire car we came across Fork. What a find. The tapas were really superb, beautifully prepared and presented. The staff were so friendly and we chatted for ages. I really love my cocktails and the cocktails at Fork were great. Prices are very reasonable. What a... More

Fork is one of my all time favourites, and the last visit was as enjoyable as ever! The food and wine is as good as the service.

We found this on Tripadvisor and it was only a few blocks from our hotel (the Hilton). My 12 year old and I went for Tapas and we could not have been happier. Quick, friendly service, delicious food all in a great setting at reasonable prices

We ate here for lunch, and really enjoyed all the dishes. We ordered four of the tapas-style dishes, and each was delicious. The atmosphere is nice too, as the main floor doesn't have too many tables, so it has more of an intimate feel than other places I've eaten at in Cape Town. The price point is comparable with other... More

I enjoyed each dish I tried--particularly the kudu and the butternut squash/ hummus. The tapas style allows you to try multiple items too, which is nice. I didn't have any trouble getting a table for two on a week night, and prices were reasonable.

It was a great experience for our last dinner in Cape Town! The kudu tapas was amazing, as was the fried goat cheese and the risotto. It was a recommendation from our hotel concierge- great job Emmy!!

Fantasic, tasty, and colorful tapas. Many different options that represented different cuisines, including African, Mediterraenean, and Indian. We tried eight different tapas, including multiple types of meats (lamb, ostrich, kudu, tuna), all of which were excellently presented and great combinations of flavors. House white wine was very good, Service was excellent.

We visited for dinner, and our group shared a large number of the small plates. The dishes were universally fresh and delicious. Full from our small plates, we hesitantly ordered dessert, but we were glad we did. The desserts were somehow even more amazing than the meal (the flourless chocolate cake was my favorite). Of all the incredible meals we... More

Every single tapas is great, tried a lot of different things and visited the restaurant twice during my stay in South Africa. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
