We had a wonderful evening at Fork. The food was excellent, creative with enough variety to satisfy every taste. Service was perfect. And we had very comfy leather couches by the window!

Dear Delene B,
We're delighted to learn you enjoyed the food and service alike and thanks for taking the time to post your review on TA. Our chefs are most fortunate to have some wonderful local ingredients to offer our guests a wide selection of tapas to entice most palates and dietary requirements. I'm pleased you managed to grab the couches by the window, that spot is always a great place to watch the world pass by on Long Street! Don't be a stranger, pop back soon. Best TeamFork

Excellent tapas at a great price, wonderful staff - the owner kept us from ordering too much (which we were about to do), and he was right - we ordered 6 dishes for the two of us, and left very happy but not over-stuffed. We got very lucky that they had a table when we called at 18:30 on a Friday - very popular place, place a reservation ahead!

Dear DCC29,
Amazing accolade "Best tapas in Cape Town", thank you! All I can say is that our chefs select their produce from an array of wonderful array of local artisan suppliers, then cook and present each plate with an incredible amount of passion. We just hope you will visit us again on another occasion! Best TeamFork

I would recommend dining on the ground floor. Upstairs is very noisy. We appreciated the server advice. The tapas were excellent and a very nice variety.

Dear pattyhb121,
Many thanks for your recent visit and for taking the time to post your wonderful review. I have to admit, upstairs can get a little noisy at times, but the ambience is very much in keeping with a popular tapas bar in San Sebastian - with lots of eating, drinking, laughter and conversation! We are most pleased to read the variety of tapas on offer was appreciated by your taste-buds! Best TeamFork

We didn't realize we were stumbling in out of the rain into perfection. Attracted by the welcoming interior and the luncheon special, we experienced an unusual phenomenon, a restaurant that leaves no detail unattended. The casual cosy interior, the lighting, the background of relaxing smooth jazz, the professional friendly service, and most of all the food. Each small bite of tapas showed much thought and execution in taste and presentation - and for a bargain price for the lunch inclusions. It's one of those places that will linger in your mind and other future restaurant visits will fare badly in comparison.

Dear LKT46,
Thank you for joining us for lunch, and for taking the time to post your wonderful review - (I'd go and dine there myself on the basis of it!) Our lunch special not only acts as a draw card but serves as an enticement for what's available at other times of the day/night. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back on another occasion. Best TeamFork

My family and I visited Fork by mistake and were pleasantly surprised! The service was great, the ambiance perfect, very European and the tapas was 10 out of 10!

We tried about 10 different dishes between us and they were all out of this world!
