From the time we entered this restaurant the service was outstanding, the food was excellent and beautifully flavoured and cooked to perfection. Salads were fresh, and the fish was cooked to retain flavour and texture. The Chef clearly knows his/her craft. Staff were attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was excellent with a great view of the sea.

In winter enjoy a laid back Sunday afternoon at Paranga and appreciate the stunning sea view. Service as usual was excellent. The starter portion of tempura prawns visually appealing and taste good. Cajun prawns and mussels in white wine sauce average. Main dishes was steak, kingklip and fish and chips. We send the fish and chips back. Overall views stunning,... More

The sunset was spectacular from the beach . The restaurant is across the street from the beach and a great place to sit sipping a drink and watching the sun drop. The restaurant was open air but had heaters when the sun set . The 2 and 3 course meals were a great choice to experience the chef's taste .... More

The cocktails and wine were also very good. All the staff were helpful and friendly. A view of the ocean and a wonderful sunset all added to a wonderful evening. Would... More

Went with a group for dinner. The meal was very well prepared and their steak was fabulous. Would recommend if you are in Cape Town. Beautiful setting by the beach and a good place to watch the sunset.

Fabulous restaurant. Beach front. Service can be hit or miss. I have had amazing and on occasion was just average. Food amazing. Wine matches with a good selection. We often go here and every time we have a great meal. Atmosphere is great with a nice view of the ocean especially during sunset 😀

We visited early in the week for dinner in the winter season. We had a wide selection of dishes and all were good. Had two bottles of wine and soft drinks for kids. Dinner and starters for three adults and two kids (at 27 ones is almost adult) came to just over ZAR 2000. Good value. Good food. Good service.
