Visited tonight having read excellant reviews and can only endorse them. First time and evening in Cape Town and an excellant start to our vacation. A wide selection of tapas, at varying but all reasonable prices. The tapas we had were presented 'four bites' on a plate, making it easy to share and brought to the table a few at a time, a refreshing change from tapas bars where all choices are presented at the same time, so some get cold while others are eaten. All we tried were delicious. The decor is good, the atmosphere was great and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. One review we read advised booking, as the place was small. Perhaps that reviewer did not know there are tables upstairs too. Whatever, it was all full by 8pm today, a Friday, so do book.

Fabulous bite sized taste sensations. A lovely relaxed, trendy dinner spot. Great service and even though we had our fussy 12 yr old son with us, he had sides of fries, and we had tasty morsels to ourselves! Fabulous, right in the centre of town.

Every dish was delicious and unique. Each was elaborately prepared. My husband, kids and I enjoyed trying so many interesting foods. One of our favorite ways to experience a different culture is through the cuisine, and Fork did not disappoint. I have teenage boys, so our dinner did not hold them all night, but we really enjoyed our experience.

Fork Restaurant (on Long Street) has a pleasant and slightly funky atmosphere (exposed brick walls, café style seating, and so on). The entire menu is small plates ... varying in price and content. I've been there a number of times and these tapas are always fantastic. And, there is something for everyone: meat, veggie, fish, etc.. Plus, the dessert tapas are not to be missed. This is a great place for date night or for a group of people to share lots of little plates. Thumbs up.

Went here for dinner one evening whilst staying in Cape Town - excellent food, friendly staff - tapas meets South Africa is probably the best way to describe the food - the ostrich and kudu were superb, as was the no flour chocolate cake dessert! Definitely one to consider if you're looking for a restaurant on or near Long Street !
