We have never had a bad meal at Miller's Thumb! We often entertain our overseas visitors there and they are always impressed by the excellent food and attentive staff. One other point is that you never leave there hungry. The presentation and taste of the dishes especially the fish is supreme. A small range of quality wines is always available. Solly and Jane, together with their well-trained team, never disappoint.

The food was excellent and the service attentive. The restaurant is quaint, well attended, and decorated in colours similar to Bo-Kaap. Cameron our server was right on top of things providing detail of the complete menu, our appetizers, main course, dessert and after dinner liqueurs were all timed appropriately, were well presented, and delicious. Very relaxing atmosphere and Jane the co owner was about and made a point to converse with patrons and ensure they were being cared for and having a nice experience.
I would highly recommend a visit to Miller's Thumb for dinner.

Had the marlin and another fish they had on the menu. They get fish daily and it's prepared to perfection! The flavors are rich and the dishes were delicious. The oysters we had were plump and meaty. Very friendly servers and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

We quite enjoyed our dinner here. It was a nice welcome to Cape Town, after a few days of eating conference foods outside of central city. The environment is warm and cozy, the service attentive. We had varied experiences with our fish. My dinner companion ordered something that was just too plain and two light. That said, anything prepared Cajun-style is divine. Skip the OMTC sauce, in my opinion. The fish is very fresh and you want that essence to come through. The servers have are excellent at pairing wines and watch your every move to make sure you are satisfied. We're thankful to have visited the restaurant.
