Ate here with a large group of friends one evening at sunset. We all enjoyed lovely sun-downer cocktails. The food,service and wine were also great. Overall a really nice place to eat and enjoy the views.

The restaurant is nice located close to the sea, plenty open space to be seated outside. However, it is slightly mass touristic but has no negative impact on the quality of the food! Unfortunately fish was unavailable (at the sea!), how can this happen? Overall, the dinner we had was really good! The staff was really friendly and keen, nothing... More

This place is beautiful! The google maps doesn't do justice in terms of locating it so u have to ask and go. It's a perfect place for sundowner but the wind of Cape Town can really spoil your evening. If it's too windy I suggest u to do it some other day. The beach view is awesome from this place.... More

Read about The Bungalow prior to our visit but only managed to find it on our penultimate night. We traveled through Clifton on numerous visits from Camps Bay into Cape Town, but couldn't see any signs for it. Eventually we just jumped in a cab and asked to be taken there. It was fantastic with breathtaking views and a sunset... More

The Bungalow greeted us on a sunny day in late summer in Clifton near cape town, which did leave no doubts about us sitting outside. The tables were located around a long table in a sort of pavilion overlooking the bay and mountains in the background. All in all is the view and vibe also the one thing that is... More

Great food, great setting and the cocktails are wonderful! Definitely full of people that want to be seen and what better place to do it?! Might want to wear a jacket (it was the windy season) as it got a bit nippy!

I ate there once a year ago and i got food poisoning. Last evening i gave it another try and i got food poisoning again....terrible food and the prices are too high for what they offer. The view is the only thing worth for.

This is more like a place to be seen than to go for great food. Think Blue Marlin Ibiza. Food and service is ok not great. People dress up and look stare at each other to see whos the richest one around. I would recommend to go to their sister restaurant Umi in Camps bay instead. Much much better food... More
