I had a lovely late lunch at Fork restaurant, taking up their lunch set menu (available from 12 to 6 pm) for tapas, wine and a coffee. There were 5 different types of delicate-looking tapas in mouthful sizes... each bursting with flavour! I added on a dessert of sticky toffee pudding, which was also lovely. All these, with water, for... More

Pleasant setting with excellent service. They managed to squeeze us in without a booking. Ended up sharing a table on the balcony with an American couple.

Fork is a tapas restaurant with some delicious flavours. The staff are lovely and very helpful. Our waitress advised that we start with 2 dishes per person and then add more if we needed. We ended up adding 3 more. Most plates have 4 pieces. We really enjoyed the salad with pomegranate dressing, very refreshing. Other dishes included pork belly,... More

Whilst strolling down Long Street contemplating dinner, I passed Fork and recalled the many fine meals enjoyed there over the past 8 years. I popped in and was greetings by the suave and debonair owner, Ed. He attended to me personally along with my waiter, presenting my 'pinchos' swiftly and perfectly. The raclette fondue, seated salmon and artichoke salad dishes... More

We sat on their balcony overlooking Long Street and spent a couple of hours eating our way through their tapas menu. Great way to pass an afternoon. Top shelf food and service at very reasonable prices (12 rounds of tapas and 3 bottles of rose - there were 4 of us - for US$100!!!)! Great, friendly service too!

We stopped here for lunch and were surprised by the food that we absolutely loved" Plates are served in small doses, that are great to share. They only present you with forks, which may be difficult to build the perfect bite some times.

You know the feeling when you're full but you just simply have to have another bite? This is such a place. We went with friends and ordered various dishes, and it was so delicious that we did another encore round of orders just because it was so tasty. My personal favourite was the roasted pork belly, but also the Deep... More

This is not our first visit to Fork as a family and it certainly won't be our last! Every single dish (and we did eat many!!) was outstanding and extremely well thought out. The quality was top notch and service was excellent. The Manager could not have been more helpful, seating us from our online booking exactly where we had... More

We stopped here for a late lunch after visiting Table Mountain. It was an excellent choice as the three of us picked items we liked and shared across. Chorizo and Raclette was a reorder as it was delicious! Good location and atmosphere.
