Miller's Thumb is the kind of friendly, neighborhood restaurant we enjoy most . Nothing pretentious, nothing fancy, but delicious, super fresh fish and seafood beautifully prepared. We can't wait to go back.

As we arrived in Cape Town our driver pointed out this the window and said "that's the best fish restaurant in town." He wasn't joking - Miller's Thumb is outstanding. Super fresh and delicious oysters, mussels cooked with ouzo and feta cheese, calamari, perfectly cooked fish and a Malay shrimp and chicken stew - all outstanding. Reservations a must.

Our B&B hosts recommended this place and it did not disappoint. Good, friendly service with the chef's wife coming to each table explaining the menu. Chicken livers are gorgeous and moreish. Fish courses we had were cooked beautifully with good sides. Would have gone back for more if we had the time. Next time!

Managed two visits here during our stay this year! You notice it the moment you enter; the fantastic service, the way the menue has been set up, the humour, the fact that no challenge is too much for this staff....then comes the food! Words are hard to find....you must try! Even if they think of themselves as a fish restaurant, (and the fish dishes are soooo good,) my husband got a rump steak that he said was one of his top three in life! The pecan/chocolate pie for dessert....to die for! And the best....the wonderful, friendly owner with an eye on each finger, creating a wonderful atmosphere. You can tell the staff is having fun at work. Good leadership is vital in business!

We discovered Millers Thumb about 8 years ago during a visit to Cape Town, and make sure we dine there each and every time we visit the area. As it is such a wonderful restaurant it is definitely advisable to book a table in advance. They serve wonderful seafood and the steaks are fabulous. The staff are extremely helpful and the whole atmosphere is very special.
