Everything about this restaurant was fabulous, couldn't fault it. We stayed in Cape Town for 4 nights and this was the best restaurant we ate at. We will be going back the next time we are in Cape Town.

We always have a good time at Pigalle. Have celebrated many birthdays here. Great having the option of the private dining room. The music is not as good as it used to be though it's still the only place in town one can enjoy fine dining, good live music and dancing. So wish there were more venues offering dinner and... More

We stumbled on this as we were staying opposite. Entrance is from behind, not on the main road. The restaurant is stunning, beautiful atmosphere, the wait staff were fantastic and lovely unobtrusive live music in the background. The tables are nicely spaced and of good size to fit everything. The food was to die for, Mum had the oysters, I... More

This restaurant was suggested by a local and did not disappoint!! The decor was eccentric and atmosphere was unusually fantastic with live caberet style band - just so different / long since I have seen this . The food was spectacular from entree to main to dessert and cocktails and service was prompt and professional . Thank you

the restaurant is hidden away amongst buildings in Greenpoint. It is a germ of a restaurant. It is quite a superior atmosphere. Good food and live band. Their prawns are very scrumptious. Their malva pudding with custard is the best I have ever eaten before. The service is excellent .

Great atmosphere with good live music, some people got up and danced but you can do as you wish. Lovely food - I had the fresh prawns and there were some great starters too.

We were visiting Cape Town from overseas and consider ourselves lucky to have found Pigalle. The host was very friendly and accommodating for us, even though we just came from tour and weren't prepared for the restaurant. But no worries, Pigalle helped us when we were tired and hungry. The wait staff were excellent, very attentive and prepared. The food... More
