We happened into this place for lunch and had their lunch special, a plate with 5 different dishes accompanied by a glass of wine or beer and coffee. Each of the dishes was absolutely delicious. Service was gracious. Highly recommend.

Four of us went for a light meal. Most items were served four to a plate so that worked perfectly for sharing. They have a great variety of unique tapas and they were all delicious. The staff was very accommodating and the ambiance was nice.

Went there in the afternoon for a early dinner by myself. The food was beautiful and would probably visit again if returning to Cape Town someday.

We loved the tapas here. They aren't traditional Spanish dishes, but a range of wonderful small plates. A vibrant, herbal salad, a risotto tart (!), and a spectacular raviolini with an egg yolk interior. And the whole thing was under R250. Tremendous

Delicious tapas. Nice feel. Friendly staff. Had to wait for 10 minutes even though we had booked...only reason why less than 5 stars

Fork is unbelievably good. Every single dish we had was terrific, with super interesting flavors. The staff--especially the "waitress" who seemed to make the whole place work--was excellent. We followed her advice and didn't regret it for a minute. Her wine recommendation was also perfect....More

Honestly one of the best meals I have had in a long time! Service was amazing and they went out of their way to accommodate our table of 6 by increasing the size of every order. Will definitely be back!

Yes for sure. And staff are very helpful pointing out suitable options or modifying them. They also cater to lactose intolerance, gluten free, etc. I had the lunch set but don't eat lamb and they just switched that out
