Description: Established by the inimitable Freda, Cafè Paradiso immediately set the bar for local cuisine and, from its inception, introduced us to a variety of dishes and ingredients seldom before experienced locally. Loving the idyllic setting and the warm ambience, Capetonians eagerly tucked into exotic and ‘foreign’ fare such as tzatziki, dolmades and babaganoush as well as the delicious country-style dishes which emanated from Paradiso’s bustling kitchens. Joined by three more formidable women, Laurille, Lynn and Mapula, Frieda and her team remained the heart of city trading with a lineage of values forming the foundation of this amazing establishment.

Awesome experience at Cafe paradiso once again. Where the kids have a awesome personal experience in the kitchen baking up a storm. And thanks to the staff for the amazing service and friendliness. And a special shout out to Marlon for the personal touch just adding a sparkle to a already sparkling experience at Cafe Paradiso.

We had our final family lunch in Cape Town at Cafe Paradiso. Delicious food, attentive service and a tranquil atmosphere with a gorgeous view of the mountain.

Would recommend and will definitely be back.

Been here every year the last 10 years. Today was noticeable that the food has gradually gone from very good to just average. The gnocchi was bland and tasteless and the meat was not good. Redwine was over chilled and I was wondering if that was to cover for bad wine?

Sorry Cafe Paradiso but you might have seen me the last time

We had the best night with Marlon as our server. He was sweet and excited about our girl getting married! He was awesome and took our photos.

The butternut gnocchi was amazing with bacon. We loved every dish that was served. And we will be back for some more.

The white table cloths were clean and crisp and great for kids to enjoy artistic expressions.

We also recommend the Jäger Bombs for them kids. Energy for days!!

We love Care Paradiso!
