A small bustling restaurant with outside tables on the sidewalk.
It has a young clientele. Small menu fish And chips excellent.
Only disappointment was that the calamari bruschetta was actually a calamari with a slice of toast on the side.

This is a bustling place, with interesting, fun decor, giving it a cozy and comfortable feel. With near gale force winds that night, we could not enjoy the sidewalk seating experience, but the atmosphere in side was very inviting and relaxed. The service was very friendly although not always timeous or complete as to what was ordered. But the waitress made up for that with an endearing and honest charm, mindful and apologetic about her omissions.
The food was very good - bistro type, well-presented and all of good quality - we had a wonderful evenings

We live not far from this Restaurant under Madame Zingara management.
A joyful place with a lot of young people and a few older couples like us.
We were so well taken care of by the young waitress and had an exciting meal - not super, super - but very good and price worthy.
Excellent service.

Few things are as amazing as sipping on a half-price cocktail and tucking into a delicious chocolate brownie whilst gazing out at the incredible views of Cape Town from the Side Walk Cafe!

I love all of Madame Zingara's restaurants but this one remains my favourite for its neighbourhood charm, fast service and excellent food.

It sure puts the magic in my day!

Love this little place, ended up visiting it quite a few times as we were staying locally. The food was very good, our favourite being the Smoked Salmon sandwich. The fresh juices were top notch as well! Manager was very nice, we had an issue with a gift card that was given as a present to us, he sorted it out for us without any fuss. Great job guys!
