We arrived into town a bit late and the restaurant we wanted to try was full so somewhere in the lost memory of things quite important I remembered a review about Orinoco so my thirsty wife and I decided to give it a go.
Centrally located in the up and coming Brees St, Orinoco is a small tastefully decorated premise focussing on southern/latin cuisine.
We ordered vegetarian nachos and seafood tacos along with the increasingly favourite South African Pinotage.
We received complimentary bread which was a nice touch.
Meals arrived promptly and were very tasty.
Our host whose name escapes me was excellent with a great knowledge of what we were ordering.
Cool place to drop in and grab some great food and just relax with a wine.

The only thing negative was that they had only 2 Sauvignon Blanc wines on the menu but only one available to order.
The food was good and we really liked it. Service was good.

Stopped here having been in the area and liking the menu when we took a look. Peruvian dishes (ceviche, pisco sour) were fairly authentic. We tried the empanada, taco and burrito two person meal.... it was more of a tex-mex feel than other parts of latin america cuisine. Pork belly tapas was very good, more like barbecue. Desserts we tried were both excellent, especially the orange and chili cake.

The restaurant is one of a number of Hip newish Tapas Bars in Greater Cape Town. Slick and stylish as only Cape Town can do. Were not huge Tapas enthusiasts but some of the dishes were good. On balance I have to say much was very sweet and bordering on unpleasant to our palettes.The food was delivered as it came which was fine, but we were after a bit more refinement.The staff were sick and cool and know their menu.Maybe if you are a big Tapas lover this is for you. For us though, we will give it a miss going forward.
