This place! Oh my. It looks unassuming - don't be fooled. It is something special. The staff are very professional and also friendly - they are clearly proud of their restaurant. The seating is great, with good sized tables, far enough apart for privacy. They happily chose me a wine as a match to my main, as I don't know... More

As our overseas friend was visiting again and Miller's Thumbs is a firm favourite of hers, so it was our obvious choice. Solly and Jane never fail to impress. We love the salad with blue cheese dressing as a starter and the tuna with wasabi was outstanding as well as the steak Algarve style. Our guest raved about the Dorado... More

We went to Miller's thumb as it was right next door to our hotel and had made prior reservation. Just from the outside looks one would not expect a fine dining experience but rather a casual beer and burgers type of place. But dont be fooled: while the atmosphere also inside is casual and anything but elegant or stiff, the... More

Best restaurant we went to in Cape Town. Choice of menu and wines very good indeed. Cooking and service (Amber) exceptional. Early booking almost essential in holiday season.

We visited on our way back down from Table Mountain, We arrived at 6.10pm but were welcomed in for a drink as they didn't open until 6.30pm. Although fully booked Jane managed to fit us in. We got chatting at the bar to Solly who asked us about our experience of South Africa. When we mentioned we were considering another... More

I have been at Miller's Thumb for dinner around 5 times and it has always been excellent. The attention is close and warm, the fish is always very fresh and the deserts (pecan pie) just the cherry on top of the cake! A place to become member of!
