Very happy to have found this treasure on our trip to Simons Town/ Cape Point. The restaurant still has remnants of its past as the famous "Criterion" cinema, with gorgeous black and white photos mounted to the walls as you walk in. The rest of the decor is a mix between italian / sea food/ africa mix however the food... More

I stayed on this side of the mountain for two months on my visit to Cape Town this year and ate at pescados the majority of the time. My friends and I enjoyed a wide variety of delicious food at a great price. The staff were very friendly and welcoming particularly a waitress named Samantha. We enjoyed learning about the... More

Good company, brilliant service and delicious food. Had a great night must try the muscles and the deep fried tentacles. It was a good night out.

Delicious food accompanied by friendly, timely service and an enthusiastic owner. Prawns and fish & chips are a must-try. However, there is something on the menu for everyone.

The menu has the usual offerings but one of the main reasons we go is for the pizza, made from scratch by the talented ladies in the open plan kitchen, they have a fantastic thin... More

Pescado is probably my favourite restuarant because the food is fresh, the staff is friendly and it happens often that there is a live band playing in the back. One does not go there for fancy dishes and decor, but to receive a hearty welcome and meal. Their pizzas are great and really good for takeaways - you can grab... More

Living on the peninsula allows you to explore little owner-run places. Our experience of the Case Pescade is unfortunately not good. We have been multiple times and often I thought, now is the last time. Being desperate for a meal on Sunday night we tried the place again. My pasta (the salmon dish) was overly creamy and gave me instant... More

Had 4 different pizzas and all were done very well. From the thin crust to the good variety of toppings it was great! Has a varied menu that includes vegetarian-suitable dishes.
