“All that was missing was the apostrophe!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2014

Deservedly very popular with locals and visitors alike this little gem calls us back time and time again and never disappoints A huge thanks to Jayne and Sol and the lively team that serve for providing such quality and value in such an eclectic setting. We even cancelled our reservation at one of CPT's newer "arty farty" restaurants to return a second time in 4 nights!! The mix here is just SO right - see you next year!

“Delicious and fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2014 via mobile

The owner of our B&B recommended the Miller's Thumb as a great place to enjoy fresh local seafood. We are so glad that he did. The food, wine and atmosphere were outstanding. The passion that the owners and employees had for their restaurant made the experience even better. This should be the first stop for anyone traveling to Cape Town

“Fantastic Food and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2014

Lovely, small, restaurant in Cape Town. This is a couple owned and run establishment, she runs the floor, he the kitchen. The fish is fantastic, the wait staff very on top of it and so friendly.

Some places its more than the food. Here you can tell lots of love and care go into everyday and every meal. Open for almost 20 years I'm not sure why you would pass up a dinner here while in Cape Town. Cozy, Casual, reasonable. Great food and wine!

“Fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2014

Good value. Fish was very good and prices reasonable. Service is excellent though you might need to slow them down! Used by locals so busy and slightly noisy though that adds to the atmosphere
