Never had a bad experience at this well appointed establishment. Food and service is always at it's best. Music good too.

Not far from our stay in Cape town my wife and I visited Pigalle yesterday evening. Apart from the place being quite big we both were not prepared for the quality of food and the service being given by the very friendly and efficient staff. Anything we asked for was attended immediately and when the wine and food arrived we... More

Beautiful furnished restaurant that plays the best music. You can can make an entire evening out of dining at Pigalles. The food is very very good and a definite recommend. Good starters to desserts. I would recommend the melt in your mouth garlic rolls to start off.

How disappointing. Over the years we have visited Pigalle many times and always left eager to recommend to friends. However our last visit was such a disappointment. The live music group has changed for the worse. It affects the atmosphere and left feeling empty. We did not even bother to dance once. Flat and dull to say the least. Up... More

After a few misses on the restaurant front in Capetown, we finally went to this Jazz restaurant based on a suggestion from a SA local. The Service was so friendly, and very accommodating to my friend's food allergies. The food was delicious! Must get the prawns! The music was a great touch too. The atmosphere is beautiful and wide open.... More

This was the "treat" of our trip - we had heard great things about the ambiance and the food and were aware that this was probably going to cost more than average. And it certainly lived up to its reputation - the food was lovely, the ambiance was great, the service was good and the wallet was certainly lighter. If... More

We took a group of 30 international customers to this restaurant when we were in Cape Town for a seminar. We had the big group menu #4 - beef carpaccio or carmelized pear salad; salmon, beef or Pigalle platter of grilled prawns; cheese cake or creme brulee. All the food was good - no one complained about anything. The service... More

Visited with a few friends and really enjoyed the restaurant's atmosphere. Great music & I was amazed with the excellent creativity of some of the dishes (I had the escargot's & lobster thermidore). Definitely would visit again especially with my significant other next time we're in town! Thanks for topping off my vacation down here.

Went with the family and would say the atmosphere is better suited for couples. Live music adds a nice touch and service was good. Has a bit of a cabaret feel. Food was good and fresh but not the ultimate exquisite plate. Gets 5/5 for overall experience though.

Visited Pigalle's on my last trip to Cape Town after reading all the reviews and it did not disappoint! There was absolutely wonderful live music, a great bar, delicious food (I had the seafood platter and it was great!), and very friendly staff. Would highly recommend!
