“South African Fusion at its finest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

If you like South African Flavors, you will adore this place. Great South African wine selection, second to none, with authentic cooking. Not a kid friendly place, but then my 12 year old really enjoyed the fish here!

“Glorious Tasting Menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

We went to Peli Peli for a business dinner. We ended up sharing a tasting menu as well as a couple bottles of wine.

The food was delicious and unique. Peli Peli presents what they claim is South African style food, adjusted for the tastes of us folks in the U.S. I can't comment on the veracity of the South African influence, but the food was great. Highlight was a prawn as big as a small lobster, and the steaks cooked to perfection.

I would recommend this place in a heart beat.

“A night of fun and great food..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

From the moment my family and I walked in the door, we were treated so well. Everybody greeted us. The food is terrific! It's fascinating to learn of the fusion of cultures that reveals itself in Peli Peli food. The atmosphere is warm, and even a bit entertaining. The manager came by our table at the opportune moment, and I was able to introduce my family: my in-laws already consider Peli Peli one of their favorite restaurants.
