Casual and has a sushi belt. I really like the fish and food there. Seats are ok but this is a great value for money. Service is great too.

Addis in Cape Ethiopian Restaurant

Addis in Cape! Voted best African Eatery in Cape Town, an authentic Ethiopian restaurant that caters for Non-vegetarian, Vegan and Vegetarian clients. We provide a unique communal dining experience you, your family and friends will remember. From traditional hand-wash ceremonies to our traditional Ethiopian coffee we promise a memorable experience. Ethiopian cuisine is famous for its rich aromas and generous use of herbs and spices. The country was historically situated on trading routes that included the trade of many exotic spices; this history has had a tremendous influence on the taste of Ethiopian food as we know it. Today most of the herbs and spices are blended and prepared in the home with great love and attention, as are those used in Addis in Cape. The dishes that you taste here are unique to Ethiopia and we are proud as a restaurant to share them with you.

Fork Restaurant

Reviewed By Deborah C - Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

In the last 3 weeks we have visited Fork 5 times. As locals we have tried many places that serve tapas and this is definitely one of the best. The only way to describe the tapas is DELICIOUS and they are consistently that way. We love the Raclette fondue, the Fig rocket tomatoe and feta salad and the pan seared ostrich fillet on sweet potato amongst many others. The restaurant is a piece of fun sophistication in Vibey Long street with great service and decent wines. Not to be missed!

Miller's Thumb

Reviewed By Bosker - Ireland

Dinner on a Monday evening and the place the buzzing. Casual atmosphere with friendly professional service made for a comfortable experience. We ate prawns, oysters and mussels to start - the prawns were outstanding. Blue nose for main course with al dente stir fry veg were incredibly delicious. Cheesecake to finish was also surprisingly good. Will remember this place for a long time to come. Highly recommmended.

The staff and management were friendly and accommodating. Choices were limited as lunch was almost over. Perhaps some generic menu options would alleviate this. But I do feel that R185 for pork belly swimming in a broth isn't really good value. The coriander was a...MoreOnes tries ones best to read walk-ins but gauranteed this time of year a spur customer falls thru the cracks

We visited the new Green Point location for breakfast whilst between accommodations in CT. We had big bags with us and there was plenty of space to keep our luggage by our table.
Great almond croissant and shakshuka! Hoping to find time to go back again before the end of our stay to try something else!!

“The original”, is consistently buzzing and filled with a variety of people from all walks of life; business folk, joggers, mommies, students, you name it. It is a local favorite and a must see for anyone visiting the area.

I think this is where I had the banana bread French toast....or was it Jason's bakery? Wherever, that stuff was darn good....and regardless of whether Bootlegger was the one, I hang out at this friendly place that has plenty of excellent breakfast offerings and a cool clientele

Chefs Warehouse

Reviewed By Jonah24 - USA

Great, friendly service, this no-reservation joint offers delicious tapas and an excellent assortment of wine. The environment is pretty decent although not a standout. The fine folks that work here compensate and the ambiance is lively, animated, and intimate. The food is exceptionally good, and I deferred to the kitchen to make my tapas choices for me which included a starter (excellent clams) followed by 4 tapas. My only constructive criticism would be on the assortment of choices--each dish being richer than the last. There was lack of balance (for me) between lightness which made it difficult to complete each tapas although this experience might differ when sharing between two people, which is more commonplace I'm sure. Richness aside, I also thought a few of the dishes were overly salty. Overall, definitely a worthwhile visit and another memorable Cape Town food experience.
