“Excellent Meal”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Don't let the band or stage show scare you off if you don't like that sort thing. This was by far the best meal of our trip and the local prawns were absolutely amazing. The prices were very reasonable and the wine list was also good and reasonably priced.

“Enjoyable enough”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

I went to the Kaapse Stories show. Although the show was enjoyable and the singing is good especially the number of Ebenezer and the Maitre D, it didn't really give an overview of the history of Cape Town as I was expecting.

The food was South African inspired and good pub like food.
However, as I visited the show on my first evening in Cape Town, I found it to be quite expensive compared to some of the other places I ate which were of a culinary high standard.

“anniversary special at Richards”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

Thanks to Gerard & all the guys & girls we had the most memorable anniversary dinner yet, the food is amazing whether you opt for the show dinner or just the restaurant, the hospitality is the best we have ever experienced, nothing is too much trouble, the staff are helpful but not intrusive. The show was very enjoyable & a must if you enjoy audience participation! We will be back on our next trip to the Cape , Heather & Mick
