“The best”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

The fish is excellent, they will prepare it as you wish (I personally like it almost raw, and with no sauces at all) it is fresh and the service is friendly and professional. The best restaurant so far, I'm still searching for a better one!

“Consistently good”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

we make the "pilgramage" to Cafe Orca a few times a year and are never disappointed. This must be one of the better spots around Cape Town for fresh fish an seafood. My wife had the rock lobster which was very well priced. Wide range of wines available at good prices. Only gripe is that no reservations taken, which means you have to go early to get a table outside.

“Best seafood ever”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

This is by far my favourite seafood restaurant. I can highly recommend Cafe Orca to all tourists and visitors. The view is 'to die for'...The service is excellent and the seafood is always fresh and prepared to perfection. They have one delicious meat dish on the menu called The Fillet Florentine that my husband normally orders. Definitely worth the visit. You will never have seafood anywhere else ever again.

“Sunset and delicious seafood”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

Wonderful setting and warm friendly service was what greeted us last night. We were a party if six plus a baby and having booked in advance we had great seats on the outside verandah. It had been a wonderful Cape day so the sunset was also special and what a view you have from your table.
Our food was excellent - wonderful fresh fish cooked to perfection, tuna, kingklip, crayfish and squid. All washed down with our own wine (corkage R45 a bottle) with excellent Dom Pedros to finish.
Highly recommended!

Delicious food, wonderful atmosphere, great service! Doesn't look like much from the outside but definitely worth a visit OVER and OVER. Beautiful view & sunset viewing.
