Excellent food with perfekt sizes for sharing. Love the cocktails. Definately worth the money. Try to book ahead if you are going there on the weekend.

Whenever I am in Cape Town I go here for a delicious dinner! Small tapas, each of 4 bites, fantastic to share and just amazingly flavourful! When you make a reservation just let them know if you have any allergies/dislikes and they will take care of it. Amazing service (especially Taps).

2 visits to Fork this year. Both times the food was wonderful. Special recommendation on the risotto tart, the pasta parcel filled with eggy goodness and other surprises. Good drinks, great service and your wallet leaves without a shock to the system

Great atmosphere- busy but well-organised and all the staff were exceptionally welcoming. Service was efficient and considerate i.e.When I asked the waiter which Chenin blanc wine by the glass was the best he recommended the house version. This was lovely and, of course cheaper so well done for not trying to just make more profit . Be careful if you... More

We made a reservation outside, but we had to change to the inside as it was too cold. That was possible, although they were almost full. We had a lot of different tapas as we were 5 people. We loved the pork belly and the ricotta ravioli. The tuna croquettes was a special and it was very good. They have... More

We've been a couple of times. It's always consistently good, and the selection gets updated regularly.

Try the pork belly, it's amazing. Service was fantastic and it has a cozy ambience. Prices were also extremely reasonable for the quality of the food and service. Highly recommended.

The Fork team, well, they are a little bit magical. The waiters are friendly and polite and efficient and smile all the time. They have humor and pride and are incredibly friendly. But the food...yoh! Every bite at Fork is lovingly prepared; every mouthful bursts with flavor and care and serious know-how. And it's not pretentious; we're not talking Picasso... More

This is a great place for a quick bite. Also good for drinks. Fork has various snack style dishes in 3 different price categories. I have never tried their 'main' dishes. They often have a great lunch special on. If you can and it is not too hot, have tapas on the balcony!
