We enjoyed some very good Italian dishes, going there twice during our 5-day visit to Cape Town. We would go there again. Except for the hostess, the wait staff could have been more friendly.

An old favorite for a relaxed afternoon with the kids. Great food as always and service to match. Kids were entertained in the baking section leaving the adults to chat and catch up. Well done and keep it up.

I love cafe paradiso because of the kids stations. They can decorate cupcakes, make cookies and pizza! It's a real treat for the kids when they also get to enjoy going out to a restaurant.

They had lots of kids activities inside. No reason to think that Sunday would be excluded, but don't know for sure.

Established by the inimitable Freda, Cafè Paradiso immediately set the bar for local cuisine and, from its inception, introduced us to a variety of dishes and ingredients seldom before experienced locally. Loving the idyllic setting and the warm ambience, Capetonians eagerly tucked into exotic and ‘foreign’ fare such as tzatziki, dolmades and babaganoush as well as the delicious country-style dishes which emanated from Paradiso’s bustling kitchens. Joined by three more formidable women, Laurille, Lynn and Mapula, Frieda and her team remained the heart of city trading with a lineage of values forming the foundation of this amazing establishment.
