We stopped at La Pentola for tea, and ended up having a wonderful experience. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the food was great. We had caper and mushroom bread rolls, waterblommetjie spring rolls with lamb gravy, and a lemon sorbet palate cleanser. We...saw a whale from our table!! Thanks to Ciara for taking such good care of us :)More
We like to support local restaurants in this difficult period so we choose La Pentola for a late birthday lunch.
We did not regret our choice.
We had the 3 course lunch. In one word it was "SUPERB".
The food, the views and the service...all 5 star. Excellent value for money.
Covid 19 proof too . Thanks for that!More
I thought (wrongly) that La Pentola was an Italian Restaurant, but there is nothing Italian about it at all!
We ordered the special menu, which is R130 for 2 courses and R160 for 3. We had starters of Chicken Livers, and Fish Cakes. The latter...was described as mixture of a mixture of salmon, hake and mashed potatoes, but the salmon was sadly lacking. The mains were pork and a vegetarian mushroom and port pie. Large portions. The waiter was (unusually) well informed. Waited a long time for the food. A decent wine listMore
We had such a great experience, we decided to go back the following night and even canceled our reservation elsewhere. Recommendations - the KWV steak (fillet) is unbelievable! The baked prawns were also fantastic. Other than that the little touches, like the bread rolls and...the complimentary sorbet / dessert-shots we received with the bill, were brilliant. We also had a tequila ice cream- type dessert which was so different and delicious! There is a 2 or 3 course set menu option which is unbelievably affordable. Beautiful sea view and friendly staff. The atmosphere is relaxed and unassuming. Highly recommend a visit!More
This was our first visit to La Pentola in about six months due to the lockdown and we were very pleased to find that the food is as good as ever, as was the service. On this occasion we eat mainly seafood (hake, prawns &...mussels) which was delicious. We look forward to visiting again soon.More
We had a table with a lovely view overlooking the ocean. We had one prawn starter and we both ordered the flambe fillet for the main course accompanied by a bottle of Gabrielskloof Sauvignon Blanc. Our bill for two came to R870 (before tips) The...only good thing about the meal and not the cost, was our waiter, Dubesane, who endeavoured to make our meal enjoyable. We tried La Pentola once almost 7 years ago. Never again. Nothing has changed.More
