From the outside looks can be deceiving, however don't let this stop you! This restaurant is fabulous and after spending a week eating at the best spots in Capetown it was the only place to fill us both up! We had the angel muscles and soup for starter and the intergalactic chicken and KWV steak special, both fabulous! The wine is also well priced and delicious, the portions are also amble and a good cheap night can be had for is Brits!

La Pentola was a lunch time pit stop for us to escape the gusting winds and the light drizzle - We were pleasantly surprised by the good range of tasty meals from Warthog to Prawns and daily specials to tempt even the most fussy of diners - the skilled chef knew how to present a delectable plate of food and very little was left at the end of the meal . As an added bonus its elevated position along the beach front afforded all guests a bird's eye view of the Southern Right Whales as they performed tail slaps and sprayed water into the sky.

Excellent food. Value for money. Angel Mussels and Warthog Steak were really good. We even bought the restaurant cook book as a souvenir.

Location is just right for whale spotting. Tip - Consider having a late lunch so that one is guaranteed a window seat.
