This restaurant is a must visit if you are in Cape Town. The waiting staff are very friendly and attentive. The interior is lovely and cosy, and the atmosphere is buzzing and laid back. The food itself is delicious and very reasonably priced. The raclette fondue with chorizo and crostini was one of the nicest dishes I tried while in Cape Town.

We visited Fork on our last night in Cape Town and enjoyed a splendid meal from beginning to end. Since our group of seven was there in the "off season" the restaurant was uncrowded. I can't attest for the ambiance during the South African summer, but for us it was wonderful. Fork is conveniently located on Long Street very near Greenmarket Square. We thoroughly enjoyed Michael as our server and guide. He was superb in all he did to make our last dinner together a special memory for all. His most generous and kind act that made us feel special and well taken care of was to taylor our selections so that the servings of each new "small plate" or tapa was created so that each of us could participate in every selection. The result was that with all 7 of us selecting 2 items, we all were able to feast on 14 different flavor sensations. Our entire experience was first class from the moment we entered until we left. Michael's outgoing personality was only surpassed by the food we eagerly devoured. We would be anxious to return to Fork, should we once again find ourselves in Cape Town. This restaurant is certainly worthy of the highest recommendation.

We had a great dinner at Fork the day we arrived in town. The wait staff was very helpful and made excellent suggestions including some wonderful wine choices. We raved about it to some people we met the next day and they ended up there the following night and also loved it. Very cozy setting--I highly recommend it!

Make sure to book in advance, especially if you go there on the weekend. Very welcoming staff and service is friendly at all times. Our waiter was very helpful, offering advice on the menu and also providing some recipe details. Food is absolutely amazing, everything we tried was good, from veggies, pasta, meat and sweets... We went there with friends that had a previous positive experience and for sure we will go back and recommend to more friends as well.
