Reviewed 15 February 2016

Bouchon Bistro is a casual bistro-style restaurant in a "wine cellar" setting. The food is mainly tapas size, simply executed and very good. After discovering the restaurant a couple of weeks ago we have already been back for more. The service was friendly and efficient, and overall the experience on both occasions was very good indeed.

For those who have known the Cape Town dining scene for a number of years, you will be pleased to learn that Faisal (ex Le Caveau, and owner of La Boheme in Seapoint) has joined forces with Dorrance Urban Winery. The result is Bouchon Wine Bar and Bistro, situated just around the corner from Heritage Square which offers a sophisticated, yet relaxed environment and great food. A good choice of tapas (which you can ask for larger main course portions) and a small main course choice. The menu is similar to that of La Boheme and I had the Balsamic Beef Fillet with mushroom risotto and mushroom sauce and it was utterly delicious. The service was excellent. I loved the decor which perfectly complements and blends in with this heritage building. For ambiance, food and location, this will become on of my favourite restaurants and I highly recommend it to both locals and visitors to Cape Town

First visit to new cape town offering, our waiter was first class friendly and knowledgeable on the menu offering. This is primarily a tapas restaurant but does have a good limited choice of mains. Tuna fishecakes were my starter, fresh chunky tuna, followed by a nice piece of beef filet as a main course option with lovely risotto followed by fresh cheesecake. My wife had tapas all the way: lamb kofkas, hummus, beef bites and Paella all very well put together and well presented, the paella particular so with two healthy butterfly prawns. Wine delivered by the glass every choice was fantastic and reflects the wine cellar attached to the bistro. Around R850, great value.

The restaurant opened less than 2 months ago but we've already been back on 3 occasions. It's relaxed, informal and laid back with fantastic food and service. Small, simple but tasty tapas portions using fresh ingredients, perfectly prepared by a talented chef. Great wine list offering a selection of local and international gems at very affordable prices. The restaurant is located in Heritage Square (on Bree Street) in a beautiful old building that's been converted into a wine cellar - stunning decor and space inside. Service is excellent; friendly, personal and attentive but no over bearing. We can't recommend this restaurant more highly. We going back again next week.
