I have been going to this restaurant since 2002. Whenever I am in Cape Town I ensure that there is one dinner at Millers Thumb. Jane is probably one of the most charismatic and welcoming hosts you can meet. The food is excellent and there is a fantastic variety of dishes... STRONG BUY!

The service and food at Millers is always amazing! It's a local that is not a secret anymore and we are always surprised when it is not full. I am a vegetarian and, being owner run, they make amazing adaptations of the menu for me! My husband loves the steak or Jambalaya (yes, we know they are known for their fish!) :)
I noticed one comment about Covid protocols not being adhered to, but we did not have that experience at all!

We googled best seafood restaurants in CPT and hadn't been to this venue before. The vibe was friendly and the food pleasant. A good selection of meals to choose from and everyone was happy with their meals. Good friendly service from waitress and good personal interaction from a lady who appeared to be the owner. I would definitely go again but I didnt see this as a speciality Seafood restaurant. Prices were perhaps a little higher than average, but not excessive and happy to support our restaurants during lockdown.
