Im amazed at how La Perla has “mature” waiters. As a lover of the elderly I really appreciated this. The cocktails are good. The food is ok. Edible. Nothing to write home about. Service is good.

A truly great dining experience with personal service to match. Will certainly go back to this restaurant that has held its own in Cape Town for many years.

I remember the La Perla where you would get lightning service, bizarre. Good food, price was worth it as the food was good, service excellent and of course the location. ALL CHANGED THOUGH....... Most of the other comments are true. The negative ones.
