“absolutely faultless”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

I've dined at Pescarne 5 times over the last 6 months and am totally amazed how I do not have a single negative comment. My visits have mainly been solo and once with an aunt and my two granddaughters aged 9 and 2. I had both surf and turf from the excellent menu and my taste buds have literally been blown away. I prefer my turf to be well done (I've been told this is blasphemy), but each time it's been sublime. My picky eater granddaughters cleaned their plates and asked for more! Their service is incomparable and the atmosphere makes one create excuses not to leave. Friendly hostess, manager and staff make every visit a pleasure. The chef has to be the best on the planet. If you're looking for excellent food and amazing service, Pescarne is the place to be. Thank you everyone for making each of my visits memorable.

“Consistently good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

I've visited Pescarne on more than three occasions. In Dec 2013 we had a party of 9 (adults and kids) all of whom enjoyed their meals. On January 19th, I took my folks for their anniversary lunch after visiting Robben Island. Coincidentally we had the Madiba seafood platter which was awesome! My mother is a legendary cook. My folks are picky eaters and do not eat beef or pork. However both my parents loved the meal. My cousin and I visited in May and once again the food was superb. I had the Tiger giants and she had the ostrich. Ask for recommendations from Taylor and his team. The Dom Pedro's are the best. Highly recommended.
