It is quite sad that, even after 5 years of moving to Johannesburg, we still have to fly down to Cape Town to experience a good dinner and dance venue as we have simply found none to compare to Pigalle! The experience to be had has been consistent all these years, with an excellent live band and good food. For... More

We loved everything - food, wine, atmosphere, smoking lounge, service. We went as a group of friends and we'll go there time and again.

From the time we entered Pigalle Restaurant we we made to feel special. We were celebrating our wedding adversary and we were not disappointed. There attention to detail was amazing and the atmosphere was just what we wanted. They have a resident jazz band with dancing if you chose to, which really added to the vibe. Highly recommended.

Great venue. Our waitress Valentine was very knowledgable on the food and wine. The background music was perfect. Only deception was our lobster Thermidor - which was overcooked and tasteless. After telling the waitress, the manager came over and we explain how it wasn't great at all, he was very apologetic. When the bill came I was very surprised to... More

I came because of the ratings it had, and I'm glad I did. The service really good, maybe a little overbearing but that is probably my own preference. The food was fantastic. We started with Oysters, some of the best I've had (they come from Namibia). Then we had the seafood platter for 2, the whole dish was really good.... More

Out of all the places that me and my friends went to in CP, Pigalle delivered on food as well as entertainment. This was a bit like going to a dinner show in Vegas, where you got seated in a booth, overlooking a stage where a jazz band performed a rotating list of numbers from the most memorable top jazz,...

Had a wonderful waiter who talked through all the dishes that the restaurant specialises in and we ordered mainly from his recommendations and were not disappointed! Squid/mussels/king prawns/line fish were all absolutely fantastic and couldn't recommend them highly enough. Everything was cooked to perfection, including the vegetables and sides. Creme brulee was wonderful and the hot malva pudding was light... More

When we entered Pigalle we were amazed by the beautiful decor. They immediately showed us to are table which was spotlessly set. When they handed us our menu we were speechless at the incredible selection. Our server, Chris, took our drink orders and recommended some meals, which made it easier to decide on our dinner. When our drinks came my... More
