From the start Dominique our waiter was gorgeous! She did everything right and made us feel special. We were celebrating the marriage of our friends in a small same sex ceremony at the table and the restaurant staff were wonderful and very excited for us all too.
Camps bay for a same sex marriage we thought would be very fitting, the gorgeous sunshine and the endless stream of high end cars made it perfect too!
The Billecarte champagne was perfect and the seafood was the best we have had in south Africa.
Oysters, prawn cocktail with an edgy new twist, baby Kingklip to die for and tuna steak with sesame and pepper crust with wasabi mash. All perfect!
The mint martini was dreamy along with excellent wine selections available on the menu.
Perfect place to relax and spoil yourself with great cuisine, fantastic service and a gorgeous sunset. Very cool.

I order the Fillet burger ans at R120.00, i thought it would be amazing. First the waiter was rather dissapointed as we did not order any drinks...
Ibrequested that my fillet be prepared well- done, but after some time waiting, it arrived medium to well. I suppose it is one of those cheffs who does not listen to the customer requests.
Needless to say, the waiter did ask us if everything was in order, but this too was done before i took the first bite, so i could not comment on my meal at the time.
It seems that the general service in Cape Town is a slow service, and being from Johannesburg, it can become frustrating.
I did see a floor manager who paraded all important on the floor, but hardley noticed him speaking the patrons. The host however was friendly and engaging.

Paranga's has a very cool lounge like atmosphere. the food is consistently good and the service top quality. we had a few misunderstandings with our order and everything was dealt with perfectly. Only catch - it ain't cheap.

Sophisticated and utterly cool. Great views, best sunset spot, well chosen groove lounge music. Staff all enthusiastic and friendly. Our excellent waitres Bernice was so pleasant, we finished an entire bottle of wine chatting to her. Tad expensive but worth it.

Ate here while we were staying St the bay. Glad we booked as this place was mental! We dud have to snuggle up next to our neighbours which was the only negative really, as they were a bit worse for wear but very friendly! The food was exceptional which we were very surprised about as the place seemed a bit chaotic but our waitress coped fine but was a bit slow in bringing the drinks. We didn't have high hopes but were pleasantly surprised. Nice happy fun atmosphere and will definitely be going back!
