The title says it all. We had a really nice time here during First Thursday. The music was vibey and the atmosphere fun. The pizzas were really tasty. And couldn't believe how fast the service was. All in all a great night, which will definitely lead us back again. Just one suggestion: stop providing buckets of ice to chill wine. We're in a water crisis and felt super guilty having a whole bucket of water/ice on our table just to keep white wine slightly cooler. Time to conserve! :)

Booked to see 3 Tons of Fun at Cafe Roux. What a great night. Cafe Roux is centrally located in Cape Town with safe parking nearby. Service was so good. Waiter even offered (and did) go with me to get a headache tablet around the corner (way beyond call of duty). Had no idea what to expect from Cafe Roux. Such fun. Food was perfect. We each had a delicious pizza and drinks seem v reasonably priced. Atmosphere that night couldn’t have been been better. Only shame was set was way too short. But would go back on a heart beat. Food good, service great and entertainment - super.

Brilliant little intimate venue with good sound, friendly managers and waiters, simplistic but interesting menu backed by a super fast kitchen. We had a brilliant evening everything was perfect. Well done. I will definitely be visiting again.

Small, intimate setting. Food options are pizzas and pastas. Music and interaction with musicians was great.
