We really enjoyed the atmosphere, loved the wine selection, and the service was excellent. Our waiter made good recommendations and the food is exquisite. Definitely go with friends who enjoy food and sharing experiences. Expect small, bite-size morsels and a relaxed service. Fork is added to my list of "places to take people".

Loved the way this place works. Ordering small samples of things lets you try an abundance of local dishes and flavours. Ostrich and kudu are surprisingly delicious. Great alternative from the same old same old.
Cozy little place with very few tables. Attentive wait staff. Highly recommended.

After reading the reviews on TA, we booked Fork for our first night in Cape Town, mainly due to its close proximity to our hotel (Mount Nelson). We arrived for dinner one hour earlier than we had booked because we were extremely hungry and tired. What a perfect choice! The staff were all, without exception, friendly and attentive and the food was outstanding. The tapas menu is grouped by price, all of which represented excellent value for money. We initially ordered five choices but the food was so good that we went on to order another four. Everything was fresh, beautifully cooked and imaginative. The ambience of the restaurant was just what we needed after travelling for 20 hours, relaxed, friendly, informal and chilled. Our waiter looked after us perfectly, recommending a local digestive and running out into the street to grab us a taxi back to our hotel. We had nine fabulous dishes, a great bottle of Sauvignon blanc, another two glasses of Sauvignon blanc, a large bottle of water and two digestives for around GBP 50.00. Excellent value for money. I only wish that there was a Fork in the UK because it would become our regular!

A great business lunch venue for me, upstairs are booths so you can your privacy, the tapas are well prepared and presented. Service is efficient and friendly.

This small restaurant packs a heavy punch when it comes to flavour. Its simply delicious. Dishes are tiny so order plenty. Beef fillet is incredible
