We looked forward to this restaurant. We made reservations, weeks, in advance. The food and service were good but every time the smoking section door opens, the smoke whiffed to us.

The restaurant was a little hard to find although close by our hotel Protea.Made reservation and only could get one at the early seating.What a pleasant surprise when we heard a 4 piece Band playing dinner music and the place kept on filling fast.Food was excellent,Dover Sole and Rack of Lamb.Well done with impeccable service.

I am very particular about where I eat escargot. Pigalle Resaturant did a fantastic job. The seafood is a hit, especially the sole, and I highly recommend. For deserts, I usually enjoy something light, and the sorbet was a great choice. A very enjoyable evening.

I visit Cape Town regularly with my wife and always Pigalle is our regular stop. Excellent and friendly service. The sea platter for 2 was amazing and well prepared and presented. Great atmosphere too.

I went a during the week for a dinner with a friend. Location and atmosphere were great. Seafood very good although the method of preparing the lobster (thermido) makes the flavor of the fish disappear. Overall positive.
