“We went twice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

The best food we had in Cape Town was eaten here. I could stay for hours at this cozy, friendly and well managed restaurant. If you don’t stay nearby, take a taxi and go here! It’s so worth it!

“Lovely venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

The outside seating area is just amazing on a nice summer's day, with views of Table Mountain, and ribbons in the trees. The service is a tad on the slow side (this seems to be a trend in the Madam Zingara group) but in this chilled enviroment it can be overlooked. The menu is original and well put together and there's always new things to try, and the pricing is reasonable as well.

“Great food but added bonus of being great with kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

The best place if you have kids and love quality food in Cape Town. Nothing else like it. Need to book in Summer though.

A really nice restaurant on Kloof Street. A good mix of local and Italian dishes at sensible prices. Excellent service. A nice night out.
