We found Fork through a local guide recommendation
& checked to see it was highly rated on trip advisor.

We tried the lunch taster menu & were not disappointed with the quality. The food is well presented & we'll be returning on our next visit to Cape Town.

If there was one recommendation for the restaurant, I'd encourage them to invest in heaters for a cold day. We ate there on the day it snowed on table mountain & needed to keep our coats on. But the last time it snowed was 20+ years ago, so don't let that put you off.

We visited Fork on a Thursday night at about 9.00pm. The atmosphere was lively, and the welcome from the staff was very good.

Quite simply the food is superb. Choose from a price per plate menu (30,40,50 or 60 Rand/plate) and get 4 tapas per plate. The food is inventive and exquisite - really superb. Four of us ate several plates of tapas, had drinks and desert and the bill was no more than £50.00.

If you are in Cape Town, give yourself a treat and eat at Fork.

We went to Fork on our first night in Cape Town based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were very happy with our choice. The tapas style menu (including dessert) allows you to try a number of different meals and they were all very tasty. The service was also excellent - highly recommend this place!

I go to Fork for the food experience. It is the opportunity to taste a number of different flavours and items all in one meal. Order 2 dishes per person and share. To get the full experience of as many different dishes as possible sharing is essential.

Every dish consists of four bite sized portion. Each dish is meticulously put together, and has fantastic flavours. I highly recommend the Prawns wrapped in pancetta, the beet fillet on croutons, the puff pastry parcels with mushroom, the pasta roll with emmental, the aubergine sweet potato curry, the roast pork belly, and the crispy asparagus.

The service is conscientious and efficient. One feels well looked after.

It is a small restaurant and has a lovely intimate atmosphere with facebrick wall, casual wooden tables and low lighting.

Suggestions - ask to be seated upstairs. The booths in particular are great.

Also note that this is a great choice of restaurant for meat eaters and vegetarians alike.

I highly recommend this place for a date, or a lovely dinner with friends or family.
