Fancy an authentic seafood experience in Cape Town? Make your way to Miller’s Thumb – one of Cape Town’s best kept secrets.
Nestled among other popular restaurants and bars at the top of Kloof Nek Road, you can’t miss this amazing restaurant, thanks to its bright orange and green hues.
The ambience is bustling – on weekends it’s often hard to find a spot without a booking – yet cosy and character-filled, which makes it the perfect place to unwind from a long day of work.
Bring a couple of friends and let Jane, the owner, walk you through their surprising chalk board menu, boasting both fish and meat dishes. Daily specialities and timeless delights include Cape Malay chicken, Moroccan-style Kingklip and prawn curry. Every dish is carefully presented and served with a side portion of either couscous, brown rice or fried Chinese noodles.
Their wine selection is also pretty impressive and the waiters are helpful and prepared, so they can easily guide you to select the perfect pairing for your dish.
At the end of the meal, even if you already feel quite full, make sure to save some space for their mouth-watering selection of desserts. Choosing between a scrumptious pecan pie, a creamy cheesecake or a delicious blue cheese ice-cream won’t be easy, especially because all of them are homemade and beautifully presented.
A complete dinner with wine, a starter, main course and dessert will cost you approximately R300… not bad, huh?
The place is especially enjoyable in summer, when you can sit outside on the patio, with the incredible view of the Table Mountain as a backdrop to your table.
