This is not as Much a cocktail bar as a place for locals to pose and be seen and ogle the attractive waitresses. My husband was very disappointed that they struggled to make a basic Manhattan as it had been recommended To him as a craft cocktail bar. Great views .

Dear Claire d, Thank you for your review.

Upon your next visit, we encourage... More

Description
Cafe Caprice combines artisan cocktails, a cafe-style dining menu, relaxing lounges and sidewalk seating to experience the epitome of Cape Town's cosmopolitan social scene. Situated directly across from Camps Bay Beach at 37 Victoria Road, open 7 days a week since 1999, it is a home for many Cape Townians and a must visit destination for tourists. Camps Bay beach is the ultimate sunset viewing spot and Cafe Caprice provides the perfect backdrop, as DJ's fill the space with laid back music from Thursday to Sunday with a deep, chilled house soundtrack. Cafe Caprice is a landmark on the Camps Bay promenade and an indelible part of the Cape Town bar and entertainment scene.
