The diverse and ever changing menu was extensive and has something for everyone. I ordered a special pasta which was the best meal I had in our four days in Cape Town. Incredible service!

We were staying nearby and walked over for an evening meal. The drinks were excellent(I had a lemondrop) and well priced. I enjoyed the unique menu options, so I chose a vegetarian lasagna roll up that was devine! My husband enjoyed a meat pasta that...he said was excellent as well. Service was top notch. One small complaint is the menu is on the wall and is difficult to see. It was just a little noisy, but that just confirms its popularity.More

What a lovely gem to find on upper Kloof Street. A small but very interesting menu with a casual and friendly vibe, and a waiter par excellence who really knew the menu and could make excellent recommendations. The cauliflower starter was superb, as was the...almond pavlova dessert. We will be back!More

My friends booked for us to go to black sheep and in my head I thought, burger joint in Kloof street. Wow was I wrong. From the outstanding waiter, to the food which totally blew my mind the whole experience was OUTSTANDING! The pork curry...was absolutely incredible and I can’t remember the last time I felt this excited about a restaurant. I can’t wait to go back.More

Black Sheep is a wonderful dining experience! Nestled at the top of Kloof Street it offers a buzzing atmosphere and some really lovely dishes. I had the Hangar Steak and the Roasted Broccoli! Beautiful dishes. Service was fine, but it does look like they are...still getting their feet after re-opening (I can imagine a lot of restaurants are facing the same issues). It was a delightful experience and I will definitely come againMore

I have been here twice over an 8 month timeframe and have had a memorable and delicious meal each time. The game dishes, warthog and Kudo, were both amazing accompanied by a local craft beer. It does not get much better than this. Expansive menu...selection appealing to a wide range of tastes. You will not regret you choice.More

We did not bring our own alcohol. The drinks and wine were very reasonably priced and delicious.
