“Great food, bad service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Food was incredibly delicious but the service was terrible. And the place was not busy. Food is worth the wait though.

I recommend:
Roast pork belly, raviolione with ricotta spinach and egg, and moroccan meatballs!

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

We read many great reviews on TA and also heard from fellow travelers how good this place was so we found it and went. The food was very tasty and is tapas style so you can try many dishes. The location is right in the middle of Long Street, which is a little shady at night but fine during the day. We would definitely recommend eating at Fork and would visiti it again on our next trip to Cape Town. One thing to keep in mind is that it is closed on Sunday. We tried to go for dinner on Sunday but settled for lunch later in the week. Many restaurants are closed in Cape Town on Sunday.

“Delicious little dishes of joy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

We went to Fork for lunch and had a very pleasant dining experience. It was a lovely day so we were fortunate enough to sit on the balcony. Fork serves tapas style dishes and we tried quite a few off the menu, our favourite being the meatballs - which we ordered another another portion of!

Lovely food, good service and a nice atmosphere. I would definitely recommend Fork.

“Tapas & Sampling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

We enjoyed our first experience with tapas. We arrived without a reservation but were lucky enough to get the last available table. Each server (we had three during the evening) explained the process and made several suggestions of what we might like to try. By the time our first order arrived, nearly all the tables were filled and the restaurant was alive and chattering. It was indeed a fun experience and an easy walk from our hotel.

“DELICIOUS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

If you are visiting Cape Town, you must give this restaurant a try! We had the best meal at Fork during our 4 night stay in Cape Town. Not only were the tapas 5 stars, but our waiter was extremely friendly and helpful. 5 tapas + 2 desserts + bottle of wine, our bill came out to be less than $100USD. For the quality of the food, nice cozy ambiance, and superb service we received at Fork, we would usually be paying $100 per person at a restaurant in NYC.
