“funky and fun”
Reviewed 14 September 2014

This restaurant is located only two blocks from our guest house. Staff are all very friendly and efficient, quite willing to explain the intricacies of the menu which changes each day. Terrific food in a really fun atmosphere.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 14 September 2014

I don't know what the perfect dining experience is but this comes close to it! Perfectly cooked fish with outstanding service from polite, attentive and well trained staff, nothing was too much for them. I know the chef is a co-owner and it shows, my wife had the Jumbalaya and I had Yellow Tail, delicious!

“All that was missing was the apostrophe!!”
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”
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”
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!
