We had a lovely evening at Bouchon on our first evening in Cape Town. The food and service was excellent and we had a lovely bottle of restaurant owned Chenin. Tapas selection was vast and every dish was amazing. Plenty of vegetarian options too. The...tapas comes out in courses, not all at once therefore offers a better dining experience. Would highly recommend Bouchon.More

We stumbled upon Bouchon while attending “first Thursday” in Bree street and are we pleased we did! Without doubt it’s the best dining experience we’ve had in Cape Town in many years. The food was outstanding - seared tuna, mushroom gnocchi, artichoke risotto, pork belly....The service was impressive and there was a festive vibe. I look forward to our return!More

This was a fantastic find in Cape Town. Thanks to a great tripadvisor review and a discussion with someone we met on the plane ! Had a great meal. Food delicious so much so we ordered some dishes twice ( beef cubes and chips !...) ordered 10 dishes in total and no room for dessert :-( Service was excellent discrete but always available. I also noted a great separate dining area that was hosting a private party Wine from their own vineyard we had two different whites both of which were excellent. Restrooms very clean. Can’t fault and would absolutely recommend. Check the menu first if you are vegetarian as a lot of fish and meat. Which suited us.More

I found the restaurant through reviews on this site and am so glad I did as we would never have found it ourselves. The bistro is dark and atmospheric and the atmosphere was buzzing on a busy Friday evening. The restaurant apparently only books a...table once per evening so there was no rush to eat as long as food was ordered by 10pm. The menu has a wide range of tapas plates although I would say that the portions were larger than traditional tapas. The choice is large and it was difficult to narrow down our choices. Every dish was delicious and both the wine and food were very reasonable priced. Graham our waiter was friendly and helpful when we asked for his suggestions.More

Favourite new restaurant in Cape Town. The service is perfect, not intrusive but friendly, the atmosphere is perfect - no loud music and able to sit and have an audible conversation. The food was delicious especially the steak tartare. Can't wait to return!

My daughter’s wedding celebration (25 people) was held in the semi private wine cellar room at Bouchon. The service was excellent, and the owner was exceptionally helpful. They were very organized, and the evening flowed very smoothly. We had the set menu of 3 tappas...and a desert, and it was more than enough food. Definitely worth a visitMore

This place is a gem. A must if you are visiting Cape Town! We had the queen prawns and beef Keftedas, the sauces are to die for and they have a a few other superb tapas. The menu is A le carte and the wine...selection is really fantastic and with a side of oysters is a absolute delight. We are definitely returning. Great ambience for couples and amazing service!More
