Pigalle is what you'd expect from a high end restaurant. The decor, the wait staff, reception greeting and menu is one of the best in South Africa. With the excellent food, comes an expected expense. You can't leave Pigalle without paying a premium for their food but if you're traveling on anything but the South Africa Rand, your currency will... More

Booked dinner with customers and overseas guests. Was not disappointed with the food.Steak and seafood are their specialities.However one steak was ordered rare and was presented as well done. The manager intervened and another steak was prepared quickly. Good ambiance and very relaxed atmosphere. Staff were friendly.

We ordered oysters to start plus a full house seafood platter for two. Probably the most expensive meal on the menu (our bill with wine was R 1 200). We asked for a salad instead of starch and the manager came to the table stating that he would be charging extra for the feta in the salad. I couldn't believe... More

A sad Saturday night alone so I decided to go for a "top destination". As a matter of fact the starting was absolutely positive: although I did not make a reservation and the place was fully booked, they eventually found me a nice table provided I finished eating in a hour and half for the ones who reserved it. No... More

Bravo for serving lunch to 150 people in a refined, splendid manner, albeit with shortage of waiters. Everyone seemed happy with their choice of food. Starters were excellent - small portions, but well prepared. For the Mains, I seem to be the only one choosing a line fish. What a disaster! Grilled prawns, sirloins and chicken portions had everyone smiling.... More

You just can't go wrong here. From the moment you are greeted at the door until the minute you leave, you feel fantastic. The staff were very helpful; accommodating my mom and her walker and they chose appropriate seating for her. We had the pate to start and a fillet as mains, as always, the creme brûlée for dessert. Everything... More

The first thing you will notice about Pigalle is the service - it is attentive and truly fitting of a fantastic restaurant. Waiters are knowledgeable and friendly. To drink, order the socialite cocktail. For mains, I would recommend any of their seafood dishes. Their prawns never disappoint. The chocolate fondant is always a popular desert shared by the table as... More

My colleague and I went to Pigalle to end the year with an end of year lunch. The food was delish! We enjoyed the frozen margarita, the Pork belly was absolutely amazing as well as the balsamic fillet was just amazing! Moses was our waiter and he was attentive and the service he provided was awesome! We just loved it!... More
