I have not been to Millers Thumb for about 12 years and what a great surprise still excellent food excellent service great ambience but maybe a little pricey. As I was not paying wasn't my problem We all had starters and everyone raved about them...I had the cajun rump it was superb the other 3 people had fish and they raved at the kob, dorado and yellow tail. We had a very nice bottle white wine recommended by the waitress.Defintely will go back was very impressed!! Thank you and Well done to management and staffMore

The fun and funky atmosphere is laid back and casual. The speciality here is fish which is perfectly cooked and tastes as fresh as can be. Prices are on the high-end of the moderate range and you can taste the quality in every bite. South...African food can be hearty and heavy but dinner here leaves you feeling light but still highly satisfied. Service is excellent and the manageress clearly runs a tight ship. Make sure you book ahead; this place is very popular.More

We had two meals here during our stay in Cape Town and both were excellent. On the first night there was a mix up with our booking but Jane managed to find us a good table after a little wait. The food is very good,...a huge choice of fish cooked different ways. I had the Mozambique curry which was fantastic. The service is very good and staff are friendly and obliging. Jane has her finger firmly on the pulse and no doubt this contributes to a smoothly run and lively restaurant.More

Excellent find. Friendly staff, very nice food, excellent flavours. Perfect portions. Not too big. Enjoyed the chicken liver starter, then the seafood jambalaya was absolutely fabulous. Thank you.

Over a year since our last visit. Welcome and service from Jane and her staff was faultless. We had the Dorado and the Yellow tail which was superb and doesn’t come any fresher. Very difficult to find such delicious fish at their prices. Small well...priced wine list with some good value wines by the glass. Highly recommended, booking recommended.More

Last night we spent our first night in Capetown at the small but special Miller’s Thumb restaurant. Calamari Moroccan style and stuffed mushroom with crab. Then cob fish also Moroccan style and marinated chicken. Finally chocolate mousse with biscuit crust bottom and a couple of...cappuccinos. This place is a real find and we thank our travel agent for the recommendation. Really worth booking in advance.More

What a find! Brilliant food - interesting menu. We had the steak choc chilli - great flavours worked really well, Bengali fish curry and Malay Yellow fin both wonderful. Must mention the staff who were helpful, attentive but not intrusive. If you are staying in...Cape Town get an Uber over to this part of town. You won’t be disappointed.More

I e-mailed. Lady owner responded but late saying TripAdvisor kept giving e-mail address for reservations despite her saying it should be by phone. She was very nice and i did get a cancellation. Bottom line is use phone.

Quite close. From MQ to main road, turn left, about 200 meters turn right and it takes 10 to 15 minutes easy walk. The guys at MQ will give you a map if you ask them. It’s worth going, it really is
