Went to Fork for the first time and was made to feel so welcome by the waiters, the manager is very friendly and ensures that you are looked after and comfortable all the time, we ordered the seared tuna and my hubby ordered the prawns the food was really good and so was my cocktails. Will recommend this restaurant to everyone

I've never reviewed anything on the day I've experienced it before, however on this occasion it is a must do. We have been coming to Cape Town for nearly 10 years. Same time every year. Fork has been one of our favourite restaurants, so much so, that it is the only one that we normally visit twice in ten days.

Tonight, alas, we visited for the final time. Harsh? You decide.

Six dishes. The warmest thing we consumed was the white wine!

The dishes appeared in record time. This would suggest they are now pre-cooked and lying getting cold.

The wine as already explained was luke warm. I asked for it to be chilled. It came back marginally cooler but still warm.

Fork have taken to using similar tumblers for wine as for water. Why?

Waitress then appeared and poured water into my wine! In fairness, this did have the effect of cooling it down somewhat, but to the detriment of flavour!

We complained mildly having concluded that nothing could rescue this train wreck of a meal.

One of the senior staff, having heard of the issues, brought our final plate and pointed out how blisteringly hot the plate was. Ironically, the pork belly upon it was still only barely warm!

We paid the bill. Left a handsome tip for nostalgias sake and left in philosophical mood that Fork, as happens often with restaurants, has reached the end of it's run.

Ate here on a Friday night and whilst we hadn’t booked a table, we were able to sit down outside straight away.

The menu is great with lots of variety,including vegetarian options (though some include Parmesan which isn’t veggie), and everything we ordered was delicious...so much so that despite being perfectly full after our first round of ordering we went back for more!

Highly recommended!

Not the usual generous South African helpings but little tapas dishes on the set menu for R350 pp on the night we visited. Great vibe, excellent food, good service, delightful setting. Not cheap but superb tasting in a lovely atmospgere. A five-star recommedation.
