We were there for lunch on a Saturday with all the craziness of the market going on around us, but had an excellent sit-down meal made up of several starters: confit of duck was generous and a bargain and amazing with a bit of jelly; the fried cauliflower with a pesto sauce was liked even by my wife who doesn't like cauliflower, and the arancini had just enough heat. Their version of pizza did no happen to conform to out particular taste.

We had read articles that praised the food at Burrata so as we had a commitment in the area, my wife and I decided we would have lunch there. Just before we left, I looked up Burrata on Tripadvisor and read a number of recent reviews that were disparaging about the service received there. So it was with a degree of trepidation that we entered the restaurant expecting the worst! Much to our delight, we could not fault the service by friendly efficient staff. In fact, we rated the service superior to that received in a significant number of top end restaurants that we have been to. The wines were good and reasonably priced.
The food did not disappoint with the lightly seared tuna outstanding. We would definitely go there again.

V pleasant meet and greet, but then a very cheeky waiter who said "if it's not on menu, we can't do it" .... He then walked away... Perhaps a bad hair day.....

This restaurant is fine, but it's certainly the lesser light when compared to the test kitchen or pot luck club, both of which are neighbors. The staff is friendly, but lack expertise on wines and the service is somewhat inconsistent. Pizzas look amazing, and there are some great items on the menu, though for the price and many alternatives in cape town, this place was a bit lackluster.

We came here for dinner one night with a group of four and while the service was extremely slow, the food was fantastic. Since the place was not full, it was rather disappointing that we had to wait forever to order our food, had to call the waitress every time we needed more water or another bottle of wine.

The appetizers were delicious and so were the mains. We ordered some pastas, pizza and meat – everything was very nicely prepared and delicious. The wine selection was great and we tried some very nice Syrahs that were a bit on the pricey side, but well worth it.
I would for sure be back hoping that next time they will manage their service better.
