We made a late, lucky reservation. The fish was good. We had the prawns and baby kingklip. It was very nice but no atmosphere. It is a large retro style place with live jazz and lovely staff. Not a place for an intimate evening

The service was average to non-existent, and the food okay. I was somewhat taken aback when my desert arrived while I was still eating my main meal. The waiter... More

We arrived at this place on a at 8 PM Saturday night without a reservation and were told that it'd be about a 30 - 45 min wait. Since there was live music, we decided to get a drink at the bar. I got a gin martini and it was decent at a reasonable price. There were a lot of... More

My daughter and I went to Pigalle on our last night in Cape Town. We thought it was great - enjoyed lovely food and excellent service. Also live music and an extremely pleasing atmosphere. A great final memory of our wonderful time in Cape Town.

A fantastic start to our visit to Cape Town. Literally just across the road from our hotel. The service was excellent. We felt most welcome, especially as we were quite jet lagged. The seafood was delicious. Excellent wine list. The band was an added bonus.

Thank Lucy C
