PARANGA IS NOT JUST A RESTAURANT, IT’S A LIFESTYLE Kove Collection’s flagship beachfront restaurant offers laidback luxury, refined taste and iconic hospitality. Circa 2002, Paranga was born – and with it the Camps Bay essence that defines it. It’s classy, it’s irreverent. It’s laidback high society meets Cape Town casual. Effortlessly sexy. Classically cultivated. Walk straight off the beach to enjoy languid lunches that become impromptu dinners and bottomless champagne. It’s the smell of endless summers and the taste of legends.

We stumbled across this restaurant really. We were doing the "red bus" tour of Cape Town, and hopped off in Camps Bay. Paranga was the first restaurant we came to after the bus stop, so we thought we'd give it a try. I'm glad we...did, because this restaurant is excellent. The service was top notch, we were lucky enough to get a table in prime position, overlooking the sea front. Service was attentive and friendly. The standard of the food was great, really impressed with the quality of the cooking. Would definitely return if I were in Cape Town again in future.More

My wife and I have visited Paranga over the years and have always found it to be the best eating experience in town. This year, we stayed at Camps Bay for five nights and we had dinner at Paranga on two of those nights, which...given the choice of restaurants in the area, is an indication of how much we still enjoy it. The things that make it so good are the quality of the food, the friendliness of all the staff, the relaxing ambiance and the overall efficiency of the whole team. It also helps having an attentive manager with a surprisingly good memory!More

We switched to this restaurant when Bilbao, wasn’t available (Bilbao is great too), and it didn’t disappoint. Friendly, knowledgeable staff who don’t pressure or rush you. Sidney was a star - the perfect waiter - so helpful and always with a smile. We shared tempura...prawns rolls (8 pieces), I had the best tuna steak, cooked medium, with a citrus sauce, baby potatoes and broccolini and my hubby had filet steak perfectly cooked medium rare, with fries and broccolini. We shared a delicious burnt citrus tart with sorbet. I had a double G&T and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Husband has 2 vodka tonics and we had water for the table. All this for £75 and in the wonderful location that is Camps Bay. We’d definitely go back if we were in the area for longer. Can’t fault it!More

The manager at our hotel recommended Paranga for sunset drinks and dinner - and he was spot on. We had a table near the front, so had a great view of Camps Bay and all the activity in front of the restaurant. From the moment...we entered the restaurant, the service was fantastic and attentive. The gin and tonic was the perfect drink to start the evening along with very tasty sushi, followed by the Kingclip. Everything was fresh and flavorful. Definitely time your visit to catch the sunset.More

An attractive establishment opposite the beach with modern decor and nice ambience. Very good service. We ordered two starters each - mussels, calamari and prawn tempura - approx 170 ZAR each from memory - expensive. The mussels were cooked in a delicious white wine sauce...and served with fresh bread - superb. Both the calamari and prawn tempura dishes were good portions and well cooked, but marred somewhat with too much chilli. A molten chocolate dessert with caramel ice cream was excellent to finish the meal.More
