After a week dining out in Cape Town, this was by far my favorite place. Overall great ambiance, friendly wait staff and delicious tapas- the gnocchi was buenísimo! Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

Had dinner with friends at Bouchon recently. The tapas were delicious and the service excellent. And the menu is reasonably priced for Cape Town. Thanks for a great evening.

What a find in the CBD. In a sea of OK and Average, an establishment that ticks all the boxes. Great ambience, delicious and scrumptious food. A culinary sensation worth experiencing again. We will be back!

I was not expecting this place to be this uniquely enthralling! I had the First Sight Sauvignon Blanc to pair with my prawn dish. My friend had the ostrich steak with some pinor noit. I'd give my meal an 8.5 out of 10. -Great service...More

Great find, the mussels were the best I've had! The wine was excellent. Everything else was also good.

A great find close to the Bree Street area. Mussels and the sardines dishes were top notch and compare most favourably with our experiences in Valencia and Porto. Wine choices and advice worked well for generally underrated S African wines. Fully recommended away from the...More
