We love Duchess of Wisbeach, because not only is the food great, but the vibe, music and service is so good. There's a tiny bar in the entrance that everyone squeezes into, and always a friendly face at the front door. Our meals have always been delicious. Will keep going back

I've visited this beautiful place with friends many times and we never left disappointed. This is a popular hang-out in Cape Town and it's always a buzz! The owner, Teresa is amazing and always welcomes us with open arms, we feel like family! She is terribly kind and generous. We've always had wonderful service, even when the restaurant is busy,...

This restaurant was recommend by Blackhealth Lodge and it was a great recommendation. Good drinks, good food, good atmosphere! I had the fish of the day and it was excellent. Others had the salmon salad and the chicken. The homemade ice cream for dessert was wonderful! Excellent dinner with a great atmosphere and wonderful service. Would definitely return!

Had the largest rack of lamb I have ever seen. The place had a great atmosphere, excellent food, good cocktails, and was reasonably priced.

The folks at Blackheath Lodge recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The cooking is very good: classic dishes, made with very fresh ingredients, and prepared beautifully. The welcome is generous and warm. The decor is retro Victorian and quite quirky and, although not a reason to visit in itself, it contributes to a very stimulating and memorable vibe.... More

Loved, Loved, Loved it! From the friendly welcome to the perfect table and the tequila finisher. The food, wholesome and perfect for the weather that was outside. The starter Tuna - perfect amount of tuna, avo and a hint of warming chili. The wine and champagne selection is amazing. Main meal portions were perfect although I couldn't quite finish it.... More

This place has a good atmosphere- the decor and vibe are fun. The food is above average too. But the service is really terrible. I've been twice. The first time, the service was ok, but the second time they were all over the place - our party was accidentally sat separately at different tables in different rooms; the mains came... More

Food was amazing, decor and ambience were perfect. Some may not appreciate the dogs that were in the dining room, when we were there, but we thought they were fun, and added to the "hominess"

This could be one of Sea Point, if not Cape Town's best but... They allow smoking in the bar/entrance which has an open door into the eating area. The smoke that wafts through kills the experience. That being said, everything else was fantastic. The food was outstanding although they did struggle with one of our party who is vegetarian when... More

We booked for 830pm and had to wait at least for 30mins for our table. The waiting room was a smokers room which was extremely unpleasant (no other place to wait) then we waited almost an hour did our food. No snacks offered while we waited. No apologies really for the wait. It felt like management had a "like it... More
