Great night out on Long Street. I had read about Fork and it suited us just fine! We love tapas style food and sharing so we get to taste as much off the menu as possible! There was lots of choice of amazing and some slightly unusual plates of food, good sized portions - oh, and it all tasted wonderful!... More

Fork serves the most incredible tapas that is not only delicious but beautifully presented as well. We shared 4 dishes between us; raclette fondue, calamari, deep-fried goat's cheese and the pork belly. While all the dishes were full of wonderful flavours the pork belly really stood out; it was cooked to perfection. For dessert we ordered the choux puffs with... More

Smallish upstairs tapas restaurant on Long St with a slightly down market feel but the food was good.Beef and prawn dishes were excellent and risotto and lamb were tasty and unusual.Wines were reasonably priced but lacked any outstanding wines.Service was very quick but a smile would have been nice. Overall a good experience and w would return.

We tried this place after seeing the reviews on trip advisor and it was even better than we expected! The portion sizes were great and meant we kept ordering more and more as we wanted to taste everything. One of the best meals we've ever had and for such a reasonable price!!

very delicious small bites. we had deep-fried goats cheese with sun dried tomatoes, rocket and parmesan salad, beef fillet on croutons with crisp onion rings, seared tuna with tatsoi salad, raviolione with ricotta, pan seared ostrich. Everything was great. but our favorites were salad, fried goat cheese and beef fillet. Worth visit, come and enjoy the food!

We loved our time at Fork. The dinner was delicious. We kept reordering the pork belly and chicken on polenta. This place is a delight! Well worth a visit.

I went to Fork last week with a few associates. The location is great, up the bustling Long street in Cape Town. We chose to sit on the balcony upstairs. There were four of us so we each ordered two plates of tapas and then shared them with each other. The taste was great and the attention to detail with... More

We had dinner at Fork and it was excellent. Tapas style dish sizes allow one to try multiple things on the menu. We found everything to be delicious. The service was excellent and we really enjoyed ourselves. Reservations are needed.

We called in for lunch having had to cancel our dinner booking for the same evening. We arrived around 1200 so no difficulty about getting a table. Friendly staff and good service. 2 1/2 plates each gave us a splendid lunch with a great range to choose from at the various price levels. Good wine list with a considerable range... More

Carefully prepared tapas in a very nice ambiance. Reservations are recommended - the place fills us quickly. We tried kudu and ostrich - if we want to try something new, that's the place. The wine selection was very nice and the staff knowledgeable and attentive
