Me and my husband had a dinner at Black Sheep on a Wednesday night. The place became packed later on, so I would highly recommend you go make a reservation in advance.

The food was delicious, not fine dining - more soul food. Generous portions and good ingredients. The menue seems to be updated fairly often, which makes you want to return even more often. The price tag was not too high, if you're from Europe or USA.

The only negative is the acoustic environment. It gets fairly loud in the venue, and if you are sensitive this might be a problem.

All in all, a great food experience in Cape town!

After becoming big fans of the black sheep last year we were slightly disappointed this time. The prices are great and the service team was very nice. Food was good but it just didn’t amaze us. Maybe we just ordered the wrong dishes. We will give it another try next year.

What a terrific restaurant. We had a fabulous evening. We had to wait a little to sit at our table despite a reservation but we were taken to a casual seating area upstairs. When we did sit the service was really good and very friendly. The food was delicious. All three courses were top class. The advice on wine was very helpful too. It was such good value considering the quality of the food. Finally the atmosphere was buzzing. If there is one restaurant you visit in Cape Town make it Black Sheep.

A great place. Food is just amazing. It deserves a 3 stars because the food is delicious and very creative. Prices are not expensive and you should book in advance because it is always fully booked. That was one of the best restaurants I tried in South Africa.

After a really good meal 2 months ago we took some international friends there last week , both parties have to travel over 60km so settled for a 6:30 booking and were advised we would have to vacate our GF table by 8pm, unfortunately the kitchen was a bit slow and whilst the starters and mains were of good quality and very interesting flavours , we were ushered into the hot windowless top floor lounge, we all wanted desert orders but after 1.5 hrs nobody took our order so we left somewhat disappointed - the top floor is sorely neglected and whilst James provided top service on the Ground Floor, the service on the top floor was virtually non-existent.
