Probably the worst food we experienced in Cape Town. Extremely arrogant and off hand service, from the maître 'd, menu very limited, asked for the specials board which at the time was being used by other clients. Eventually having asked twice three boards appeared! We ordered, oysters with gooseberries , was ok followed by in edible duck, so disgusting I was vomiting , my husband ordered the fricasee, so disgusting and again in edible. We asked for our bill and left. We were asked to return for a free dessert the following day, unfortunately we will not be going anywhere near this restaurant again. And also what an insult as most of the food was left we really should have only paid for the drinks !! The staff were not able to handle this situation at all.

Celebration restaurant; reserved for my daughter's birthday (24th). The concierge at the Black Heath recommended and arranged for reservation. Make sure taxi-driver knows where it is located, especially at night.
A three-course menu provided, yet choose between 'book' menu and black-board offering. Well worth the reservation, food superb, service outstanding, and absolutely no rush. We had just come from a spa treatment so under-dressed, Do not be dismayed; staff treats each table as if it was only on in dining room.

Fabulous and eclectic menu.... Too many things to order and enjoy! We stuffed ourselves with more courses than we probably should have. Great wine list, lovely ambiance and attentive service.

Went with my new hot Italian date and he was at once effusive and speechless!The West Coast Oysters and Taittinger were followed by a Pot au Feu (beef fillet+shin,veal shank+marrow bone with oxtail jus reduction and winter vegetables)...then a hot, steamed ginger pudding with butterscotch ice cream and 2 ristretto espressos...

We have been to Bizerca on a couple of occasions previously and had wanted to impress our overseas visitors but were disappointed. The starters arrived promptly and were delicious. We then waited an hour and a half for our main course! The chef had forgotten about our order! Tables around us which had arrived after us received their orders way ahead of our table. The pot a feu was bland and the butternut gnocchi heavy and flavourless. Not light and fluffy. Lack of seriousness to our situation was attempted reconciliation bt giving us the apple sorbet as dessert. All in all a disappointing dining experience
