Based on TA reviews booked here for our last night in Cape Town. We are a family with a 7 yo, and when we arrived we found the ambiance to be very adult. However we were received with open arms and welcomed at all levels. They even prepared a "child size" fish and chips off-menu.

The dinner was exceptional, live band playing really nice selection that did not interfere with dinner chat, all around a solid recommendation.

We are lucky to be able to accommodate the youngsters at this time of year even though our venue on busy nights and in season is a no under 14 venue - it is a pleasure to introduce them to our beautiful venue!

Quite difficult to summarise the place...Service and food is good, but the entertainment is very poor, especially the sound quality. We were all quite energetic and ready to go, but the entertainment never really got going. Its also rather pricey and very big, but the whole place just does not gel. Maybe a very large group who are celebrating a happening may get more out of it.

Hello Steve,

Thank you for your valuable comments.

As our venue is first and foremost a restaurant with high quality food and service, the great support that we have from our very talented local musicians is purely an add on, and is more geared to being a pleasant background to dinner as opposed to the centre of our offering.

The venue is great for larger groups as you say, or on very busy nights we have a large following who love the great food, service and general overall vibe of an 'old school', upmarket establishment where their every need is well met.

Thanks again for your response.
Kind regards,
The Pigalle Management Team

One rarely finds a venue for quality dining and dancing in Cape Town. Pigalle has managed to perfect this with delicious food, a live band and good service.

They are centrally located in Green Point, the venue is classy with a lovely ambience.

The restaurant prides itself on fresh seafood, such as its oysters and my personal favourite, the Pigalle Platter. On this visit I tried their prime rib steak, which was delicious.

In my view the pricing is fair for the portion sizes and the quality of food.

We once again had a lovely night out and look forward to visiting again in the near future.
