Decided to have a quick lunch with a business associate. We chose the fish and chips... what a delight! One of the best fish and chips available in Cape Town!

Lovely setting, be patient with some of the service.

Thank Sean M

My cousins and I arrived last night at Square Cafe & Wine bar for my pre-birthday dinner celebration. From the moment we walked in, the attending staff (and waiters) gave us weird looks. Once we got a table, a menu was placed on our table but the waiter did not return and we were forced to eat from the buffet. After our meal, we had to flag down what I think is a manager to get us a waiter so that our plates could be cleared and so that we could receive the drinks menu. The service really lets the place down.

Great place for drinks (wine bar so impessive with a wall computer to help you decide on wines by the glass or bottle) and fantastic "Popcorn Chicken"!
Try it, you'll love it!

Dear lindaolsen

Thank you for taking the time to review your latest visit at the Square Cafe and Wine Bar

The digital menu at the cellar, is our latest addition, in making your experience, an even more impressive one! The popcorn chicken is most definitely a Square Favourite, especially when enjoyed with a glass of Chardonnay to compliment it, Ill be sure to tell the Chef, that the Popcorn Chicken is not going anywhere, anytime soon!

We look forward to welcoming you back!

Kind Regards,

Bradley Isaacs

Would highly recommend the harvest table in addition to the menu. Great home-made food that is well prepared and complimented with superior service from attentive staff.

This is a nice relaxing place. Better than the alternatives around Century city.

Cocktails are great, seating is comfy, service and pricing is not bad.

Decor is great too

I will return to sample the food but if it's anything like the rest, I'm sure it will be good.
