great views, tasteful decor, great service. Food is well presented and tasty. It is pricey- but this is expected for a place that needs booking well in advance. I'd say save it for a special occasion and go with a crowd/ partner that are keen to share.

I went with a friend for lunch on a Thursday with no booking. When we walked in the waitresses all just kind of looked at us. After what seemed like an hour (was more like 30 secs) finally a gentleman came to help us and was so friendly and helpful it redeemed the whole situation. We did get a table... More

Just my kind of restaurant. Hip yet friendly, fine dining yet fun. We had a great time trying lots of different small plates. The stand-outs were the Chalmar beef with chocolate sauce and the very different fish tacos. Oh my--we had to order them twice! Make reservations far in advance.

This place is great - definitely the best food I've had in Cape Town. The food is served tapas style, which is great because you get to sample more of a selection. The atmosphere is warm and fun, even on a rainy night.

Had a vague idea of what I was going to experience, and boy was I wrong! The food was sublime! Every single thing I had was exciting and delicious. The presentation of the food was artistic and slick. The service was chilled yet very attentive. The decor and dishes used for the food were modern and very classy. The cocktails... More

Amazing ambience, out of this world food and excellent service. We reserved a table at this restaurant 4 months before going on holiday to South Africa after trying unsuccessfully to make a reservation at The Test Kitchen & being told to try the sister restaurant instead. The food is in a tapas style, so you order lots of small dishes... More

If you are a big eater, then come prepared to spend a lot of money- the food is fabulous, but the smaller sized portions make you leave hungry. fantastic venue and food

Delicious tapas that were carefully crafted into an art form. Friendly, efficient and effective service. Book in advance as understandably popular. This is funky fine dining in the form of tasteful tapas. Price fairly reflects the quality of food and the detailed effort and skill required to produce such delightful dishes. Recommended by Atlantic View Boutique hotel - another perfect... More

Went to dinner the first night in Cape Town and loved the food as well as the experience. You order a list of things you want and they start bringing food when it is ready. Every dish was very good and a lot of them were excellent. Warm, friendly and comfortable atmosphere.
