We arrived in Cape Town on Boxing Day and our visit to Pigalle (booked in advant) was our Christmas dinner. A wonderful meal, attentive service and great music to accompany our dinner. My Ostrich medallion was one of the best I have tasted. The service was just the right balance of being there and giving us time to enjoy our... More

I was staying in Cape Town at long street backpackers and wanted a nice dinner. I called the restaurant for a reservation. They even called a cab for me but I did have to pay which is definitely not a problem. I had beef carpaccio for a starter, ostrich medallion for my main and creme brûlée for dessert. My waiter...

We enjoyed the fabulous sea food in pigalle on the 13th of Feb 2017. Not only was the food delicious, the Jazz was excellent and the service by King Arthur and Tryniore (?) was superb. Thanks for making an excellent evening!

From the main road you could be forgiven for thinking this place is closed, but a journey to the formal entrance at the rear and a huge dining experience is waiting for you. Great food, personable service - and a rare find in this city; live jazz funk music with a place to dance. Recommend the experience without hesitation.

We arrived for dinner and order seafood, it was very good, the service was also great. The food is pricey by cape town standards, but good food.

The food was really nice from the starter to the desert. The Mezze Platter is really creative, it's like having four different starters in one. I think they should do it for sea food too. The Sea Food Platter wasn't the best but still really nice. Fast service. Mbali who served our table was always so nice and kind. The... More

We ate at pigalle on Friday night. From the second we arrived we were treated like royalty. They treat everyone the same which is amazing. The food was the best I have eaten in a long time and by far the best seafood I have ever eaten in Cape Town. We had a variety from muscles, calamari, oysters, prawns and... More
