Visited early Dec.We booked and got a table for 7 quite easily. Reception and service was efficient enough. Food was good ( we had a variety), but not exceptionally so. Music. however, was great to dance to and made up for any shortcomings. Nice dessert menu as well. Pricing - comparable for a fine dining establishment.

Our welcome was questionable when our reservation wasn’t located. Being Christmas time we were told we had to book well in advance and our credit card was used to secure the booking. Not sure why we needed to book ahead as there were many empty tables.
Our waitress was most attentive and she endeavoured to ensure that my dietary needs were met. The restaurant’s atmosphere was pleasant and was bolstered by the band that played some of the old favourites.
Our meals (Seaford platters) were large but the seafood was spoiled by the overuse of garlic and butter.
My husband’s entree of the trio of fish was well presented and he enjoyed it.
He was pleased with his wine selection.
The chocolate mousse was delicious.

Dear Travelofficiando ,

We are sorry to hear about your difficulties , we were in the process of upgrading our reservation staff and systems , we hope to be at our 100% best in this regard in the coming month. Glad to hear the service was to your liking , the over use of garlic and butter is an issue we have raised with our chef and he has tailored the menu accordingly.

Please do come visit us if you are in the area

Kind Regards
Pigalle

Booked for Christmas Eve dinner. Nothing has changed since my last visit about 4 years ago. Found the waiter annoying trying to push the higher priced menu items. Quality of food is excellent, but wine overpriced. Will not rush back.

Attended a Gala Dinner at Pigalle as the MC. All the planning went exceptionally well and the evening was a success. Staff were friendly on greeting guests and taking the the drink orders. Food Orders were taken efficiently from the selection and served without hold ups. The food was very good. I need to go back to experience as a regular diner.
