Decided to stop here spontaneously for a late lunch. I was very happy with the food, from the excellent wasabi tuna carpaccio to the surprisingly fantastic saffron mussels. They also provided a mean margarita. They were also very nice about me asking to move tables around their terrace depending on the position of the sun. Friendly and happy service. The only strange thing was their wifi curiously didn't work with an iPhone, but did with an Android phone.

La Perla is an old favourite, on the beach-side road at Sea Point, Cape Town. It could have been transplanted from Nice or St Tropez. It's a stylish place, with large glass sliding windows opening onto a terrace well above pavement level so guests are not bothered by hawkers. It's family owned with an Italian emphasis - good fish and pasta for example. The staff are friendly and efficient, the food is good (and not over ambitious as some restaurants) and the wine list fine. The crowd is mixed wth visitors, locals and film-makers. It seems to have upped it's game recently. I'm looking forward to next year at La Perla.

After a short walk along the beach I saw this nice looking place and thought that will do, it's high end but reasonably price and the staff are great I had a glass of wine bruschetta and the minestrone soup

Walked to this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. Very nice atmosphere. Veal dishes were superb but only Complaint was that the angel hair pasta offered with all veal dishes was very overlooked and had been prepared and had spaghetti had stuck together.

If I would have read the reviews before I went to this place, I probably would not have gone. I am shocked actually. The food was good, great service and the ambiance outside at night was gorgeous. The menu has a great selection.

I would recommend this place with no issues. Enjoy!
