I was totally disappointed of the quality of the food , Spanish tapas at its worst, totally overpriced. It used to be a great place but now just another tourist trap that still is alive because of its excellent past. Will definitely not visit anymore....Makes more sense to donate your money to the many homeless 👍🏼More

Each dish was a journey. The flavours in each bite were delicious incredible. We ordered 8 different dishes and although unable to move by the end of the night we wanted more! We got to meet chef Gordon at the end of the night and...learned about the ingredients he sources and the story behind dish. Incredible food, wine and ambience and next time we’re in Cape Town we’ll be sure to return first thing. The best tapas I’ve ever had!!More

Very good high end tapas food, high level of attention to detail in the ingredient sourcing and execution of the cooking, excellent wine list - but even for central Cape Town, this is not a cheap night out. Fine when on the company account, but...would be alarming if coming out of your own pocket.More

We went for dinner and it was our 1st & last visit. We simply didn't like the food as it was tasteless. From the reviews we expected it to be much better. The only good thing was the staff as they were nice & friendly.

Absolutely amazing food and service! Love the artwork also. Oysters, calamari, sardines 👌🏻 all was fantastic and will definitely be back!

What used to be an absolutely fantastic establishment turned really bad recently for some reason. Everything underwhelmed! The worst was the dry and chewy oysters. How do you mess that up?! No no no.... I have no idea what is different in the restaurant but...the food is decidedly awful. We won't be back... in fact we cut our lunch short and went to Himitsu at Camps Bay Retreat which was mind-blowingly great!More

I have always had outstanding meals at Chefs Warehouse but I feel Mazza didn’t quite hit the mark . The decor is good ; service was average and Covid table spacing not ideal . We shared the charred broccoli; roasted aubergine, smoked cauliflower and the...flatbread with dips . All dishes came on side plates - so you can understand how small the servings were relative to their cost . The broccoli R90; the cauliflower R95 ; the aubergine R110. We ended with the pistachio cake R 95 and chocolate selection R75. We found the meal okay but definitely not worth a return visit .More

Chef's warehouse is still an amazing place to enlighten your tastebuds with amazing aromas and flavours. The waitor explained the menu in detail and the service is fast and the food amazing.

Sorry but I just didn't feel the pricing matched the food. Service was great but way over priced we had a couple of starters and then the paella main and I can't say I was impressed with it given the price. Sorry guys

Had a work dinner here recently and we ordered lots of dishes for sharing. Every morsel a taste sensation. Presentation flawless and service great. Cannot wait to go back. It really was excellent.

If my memory serves me right, yes, it’s based on two people sharing. I suspect that’s because of the amount of food overall (like 6 or 7 plates is hard for a single person to consume alone). But you can contact the... More

Sorry, I have no information on that. However, the staff is incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating. I would suggest calling them directly and asking.
