Pigalle is a hidden gem of a fine dining experience. From the moment you enter the door to the moment you leave superb. A small band plays wonderful music during the evening where you can dance later in the evening. A real treat for your holiday if you like a true elegant fine dining & dance experience.

We had the most fantastic evening on 20th Jan and were very spoiled by the fantastic service of 'king' Arthur, our waiter, as he called himself. Thank you!! This is a special place just fractionally outside the normal tourist drag by the V&A Waterfront. Our food was first class, along with the service, and the bonus was great live music... More

Booked dinner for my wife's birthday and they gave us the best table in the restaurant. Great atmosphere with the live jazz music in the background. The food was cooked to perfection and the service friendly.

Not far from our stay in Cape town my wife and I visited Pigalle yesterday evening. Apart from the place being quite big we both were not prepared for the quality of food and the service being given by the very friendly and efficient staff. Anything we asked for was attended immediately and when the wine and food arrived we... More

Beautiful furnished restaurant that plays the best music. You can can make an entire evening out of dining at Pigalles. The food is very very good and a definite recommend. Good starters to desserts. I would recommend the melt in your mouth garlic rolls to start off.

How disappointing. Over the years we have visited Pigalle many times and always left eager to recommend to friends. However our last visit was such a disappointment. The live music group has changed for the worse. It affects the atmosphere and left feeling empty. We did not even bother to dance once. Flat and dull to say the least. Up... More

Hi Jenni, Thank you for your constructive criticism as well as compliments. You are right we have changed the band due to a number of reasons and we take the music side of our entertainment very seriously. We will certainly address this issue with the current band. i am certain that on your next visit we will have you dining... More

After a few misses on the restaurant front in Capetown, we finally went to this Jazz restaurant based on a suggestion from a SA local. The Service was so friendly, and very accommodating to my friend's food allergies. The food was delicious! Must get the prawns! The music was a great touch too. The atmosphere is beautiful and wide open.... More

This was the "treat" of our trip - we had heard great things about the ambiance and the food and were aware that this was probably going to cost more than average. And it certainly lived up to its reputation - the food was lovely, the ambiance was great, the service was good and the wallet was certainly lighter. If... More

We took a group of 30 international customers to this restaurant when we were in Cape Town for a seminar. We had the big group menu #4 - beef carpaccio or carmelized pear salad; salmon, beef or Pigalle platter of grilled prawns; cheese cake or creme brulee. All the food was good - no one complained about anything. The service... More
