Invited by friends to a restaurant that we never heard about.
Nicely laid out restaurant with a fine veranda, but due to windy weather was not an option.
The chicken livers, ostrich carpaccio and salad were all excellent.
For mains the line fish was kingklip which was excellent, the beef fillet was rated amongst the best in Cape Town, the chicken supreme was very flavoursome.
The weakest of the mains was the lamb cutlets which were dry and over cooked.
For desert the creme brûlée was the best sampled in Cape Town but the panna cotta was a little stodgy.
Wines were reasonably priced.
Altogether a pleasant surprise.

Thank John J

I drive often along Main Road, but have never noticed it. We had a voucher from The Entertainer and decided to give Marc's Table a try. And we weren't disappointed. We had the lamb chops and the pork cutlet and both were very tasty. We weren't very hungry so we gave starters and dessert a miss but they looked great on other tables. The place is fairly small so booking is essential. We'll certainly be back.

We visited for dinner, there was a big table of us and the restaurant accommodated us with no problem. There was no issue helping one of the guests with his various dietary requests and was served an amazing meal. I had the ravioli for starters and wanted to lick the plate clean. I had the kingklip for mains and it was the yummiest piece of fish I have had in a long time. We where looked after by a lovely lady. Oh yes I almost forgot the complimentary bread served in the beginning is worth visiting alone.
