This restaurant does not match the standard of Pigalle Bedfordview. The furnishings are tired and in places grubby. The fare is ordinary. The service barely acceptible. Disappointing.

We love seafood and fish, which is why we came to Pigalle. We had tandoori prawns and calamari as a starter. The seafood was well prepared, very fresh, but totally spoiled by being extremely salty. Why add so much salt? One can always add it...to personal taste, but once it’s added there is no way around it. It ruined the dishes for us. As a main course my husband had the kingklip, which was tasty but a bit too firm. I had the giant king prawns, which looked amazing, but they were drenched in an absolutely terrible and extremely garlicky sauce (which was not in the description of the dish). It totally overpowered the taste of the beautifully cooked prawns. When I mentioned I could not eat it and would like to have the prawns plain, they were kind enough to replace my plate with a new set of 5 prawns. But it was still drenched in lemon butter sauce. The super overpowering sauces spoil the dishes, show no love for the seafood and its taste. Such a shame! Not coming back.More

Had a lovely evening out with great high quality food. Took a bit of finding as the restaurant is in the shopping but once you have found it you will be in for a treat. Based on UK prices the restaurant and its menu was...very reasonable priced. The service was fantastic and would recommend to anyone visiting from the UK.More

Excellent service; we were looked after by Thuli. Elegant decor and a good selection on the menu. Food was beautifully prepared. I had the beef trinchado and it was succulent tender chunks of fillet in a gorgeous cream sauce. I had the periperi chicken for...my main (HINT: probably not a good idea if you're wearing white!) And I must give a shout out to the periperi sauce 9n the table. Excellent and very spicy. My wife had the prawns tandoor, followed by a baby kingklip and both were excellent! All in all, a very enjoyable lunch. Highly recommended.More

Good Portuguese flavoured Shellfish & Seafood Faire in Sandton. A large varierty of fresh shellfish & sea food in the city with no natural water source & yet here you taste both some of the best sea food & Portuguese favours in town. Oysters &...Prawns are always fresh & delicous. A menu for all taste buds even the steak looks good. I thoroughly enjoy a Prawn & Langoustine platter always at PigalleMore

Visited during the week and got a quiet table in the more private part of the restaurant. Good selection of starters and main courses. However, the menu did not have as many options as before COVID lockdown started. The sea food dishes and the Portuguese...fillet were tasty and of a high quality. Another highlight of the evening was the attentive and friendly service of Charity, the waitress. Will visit again when in the vicinity.More

Took my mum to Pigalle on Sunday for a birthday lunch. It was my first time here so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I can honestly say that I would come back. The food was amazing and well-presented. The staff was also extremely...friendly and accommodating. This was a family visit but I can definitely see the potential to move some of my business lunches here as well, if that is something that can be accommodated.More

It used to be a very good restaurant, sadly no more. They came up with a "corona menu" that might have done well in Sparta maybe. I don't understand why they don't just close down coz at this rate nobody will ever go there anymore....Food and menu have gone down, service has gone down, but the prices , eish no, have gone up ! They will not see me again.More

Eaten here in Sandton and the one in Cape Town dozens of times over the years and have never been disappointed by the experience. Sometimes the food and service is slightly inconsistent... but in general I have always had good service and great meals. This...time the service was truly amazing, Artwell our waiter was fantastic and our shellfish platters delicious. I really enjoyed the prawns, langoustines and lobster. Even the chips and rice were fresh! The calamari starter was also fresh and tasty! Overall we had a great lunch! Don’t miss out on this consistently excellent restaurant. Menus are looking a bit worn and should be replaced soon hopefully without any major price increases as they offer good quality & value for money. Ali and the management was friendly & welcoming as always.More
