This was a very popular spot on Sunday evening. Great view and atmosphere. Service was amazing and the drink selections were good. If you like a busy, upbeat, trendy crowd, you should check this place out. Good spot!

Very nice food, particularly the sweet potatoes and wraps. Friendly waiters and a proper view. A bit too noisy at night, but thats because this place can be packed in the evening.

Avoid the chicken wrap as it was abysmal. Plastic tasting chicken. On the other hand the fish and chips were superb and big enough for two. Good place for eats and drinks if you choose well. Alex our waitress was an absolute delight.

Camps Bay is busy with tourists buzzing around and Caprice is a nice step out of this. We sat outside which proved to be a bit too hot, and there were homeless people and street performers asking for money; but I can’t really blame the venue for this. Apart from that the experience was good. The food came quickly and... More

Cafe Caprice is the place to be on the week end to watch the sunset in front of a glass of wine or a cocktail, with a nice lounge music and laid back people... The food is good and not very expensive. Be carefull if you came after 5PM on the week end, you may not find a free table... More

Enjoyed lovely cocktails and sunset views from Cafe Caprice. Our server Claire was an absolute delight. Be sure to ask her to pop your bottle of champagne for you... she does it flawlessly.

Unexpectedly in Camps bay we decided to have a sunset drink. Staff were great. Attentive and helpful. We weren't planning to eat but still they found us a pavement table. Great view of palm trees and sunset. Interesting to watch the street culture and the management handle the inebriated members of public trying to gain access. Well controlled with a... More

Great setting on the beach front of Camps bay. Great service with a smile and stunning food to go with the view. A place to meet some locals and have a great time with great music playing in the background

Probably the best situated bar/restaurant in Camps Bay. Great views and atmosphere at sunset. Go for a drink, relax and take the beauty of the African sunset in. But don't expect quick, or impressive service. We often had to chase the waiter for our drinks orders and found them sitting at the back of the restaurant chatting and having a... More

Description
Cafe Caprice combines artisan cocktails, a cafe-style dining menu, relaxing lounges and sidewalk seating to experience the epitome of Cape Town's cosmopolitan social scene. Situated directly across from Camps Bay Beach at 37 Victoria Road, open 7 days a week since 1999, it is a home for many Cape Townians and a must visit destination for tourists. Camps Bay beach is the ultimate sunset viewing spot and Cafe Caprice provides the perfect backdrop, as DJ's fill the space with laid back music from Thursday to Sunday with a deep, chilled house soundtrack. Cafe Caprice is a landmark on the Camps Bay promenade and an indelible part of the Cape Town bar and entertainment scene.
