This was our second visit to La Petite Tarte. On both occasions we left the restaurant feeling really happy and impressed. The whole experience was wonderful. I had the quinoa salad, it was very fresh and delicious. My husband had the quiche and salad and it was equally delightful. We shared a piece of carrot cake, which tasted as if... More

Ate here for dinner although it is more of an afternoon tea cafe - it was close to our hotel in Loader Street so was safe to walk here and back in the evenings. They make delicious cakes, e.g. Lemon Meringue Pie, Malva and the best Bobotie we came across in South Africa! Great service too - we arrived a... More

A group of 6 coworkers ate dinner here while in Cape Town for a conference. It was very near our house in De Waterkant and we walked past it often so gave it a try one evening. They were very busy but the food was excellent and the dessert even better (don't skip dessert here!). We even stopped by later... More

Nice atmosphere and neighborhood. Friendly and helpful staff. I enjoyed the pies. Had Chicken pie to-go. La Petite Tarte was a short walk from where I was staying in the De Waterkant area, Cape Town.

Twice I visited, twice I was ignored. My second visit was due to my partner wanting the ribs on the menu. It was meant to be our last meal in Cape Town, after enjoying three weeks in this lovely city. Not even drinks were brought to our table. Outrageous

As the owner of La Petite Tarte I totally agree that poor service is not acceptable or can not be tolerated, not even once in my business however there are much more to the entire issue that is not mentioned by all involved that evening. Unfortunately in this case I have to also support my entire evening staff that we... More

Relaxed sidewalk restaurant that we stumbled upon for an excellent english styled afternoon tea! It does not rate with the Mount Nelson nor the Table Bay but does not pretend to! Its a quaint coffee/tea hideaway with excellent cakes and tarts and also offers an amazing simple lunch menu! Don't miss this out!

We met a friend for breakfast here and were pleasantly surprised at the variety of offerings and quality of food. The staff knew our friend so there was friendly banter and we were treated as welcome guests. We returned another day since we were so pleased with breakfast and had lovely cakes and drinks and would recommend La Petite Tarte... More
