Upmarket and exclusive, with a great selection of generous dishes, Pigalle is especially famous for its perfectly cooked seafood. Enjoy a complimentary amuse-bouche of creamy butternut soup before making your choice from the menu.

Start with prawns dusted with tandoori spice, shallow-fried and served on warm julienne vegetables, with a pepino and coriander salsa, or try the salmon duo – cured Norwegian salmon on fresh avo and sesame-encrusted seared salmon drizzled with teriyaki sauce.

For mains, the langoustines come highly recommended – grilled in lemon butter and lightly brushed with garlic. There’s also a variety of poultry and meat cuts with optional sauces.

The dessert menu features favourites such as malva pudding, crème brûlée and panna cotta.


The wine list is extensive, with excellent sparkling wines and MCCs.


Five-star service from highly professional waiters. Tables with eight or more guests pay a 10% service charge, and a reservation deposit is required for 10 or more.


Formal, with elegant old-style décor and furnishings, aimed at those who place a high value on quality and service – and are willing to pay for it. It’s a very private space with dim romantic lighting. No children under 12 are allowed, except on Sundays.

Best for…

An anniversary dinner, first date or other special occasion.

    Always a pleasure to dine here, food never disappoints. Thumbs up on all seafood dishes, especially the prawns. The ambience also allows for the dinner to be special, with highly attentive staff and service.
    This is one of the most amazing restaurants that I have ever visited. We were celebrating a birthday when I visited and I must say - it made everyone's night. We were greeted by a very friendly waitress, she had seated us and placed our napkins on our laps. A few minutes later, we had hot soup and bread rolls placed on our table. They were divine! She constantly checked up on us, we also had two visits from the manager ensuring all was well with us. When it came time to place our main orders, we were told about their best dishes. I decided to go for the prawns.. BEST DECISION I have ever made. The prawns were huge and so soft, they were served with the best peri peri sauce that I have tasted so far, with a side of fresh chips on the side. While eating, the manager came over to check if the food was fine and if we needed anything that he could personally bring us, I found that really nice about Pigalle - they always add a personal touch. As soon as our meals were done, our plates were taken away and we were presented with the BEST dessert menu thus far. We tried the chocolate brownie and Malva pudding. I must say, it was delicious! Both desserts were the kind that just melted in your mouth. Their presentation is the epitome of perfection and certainly raised the bar really high. The ambiance of Pigalle is a really classy, sophisticated and classic type of one. There is soft music playing in the background, the most wonderful art work all around the restaurant and the most calm vibe. Pigalle has really lived up to its name and I would go back anytime! This restaurant is perfect for a celebration or special occasion because you will not be disappointed.
    Pigalle is amazing!!! When you are seated, a complimentary espresso cup with curry-butternut soup with a warm roll is served. The soup is really tasty and smooth! The decor is luxurious and tasteful and waiters are well-trained. I had the Bouillabaisse Soup today - R80. And wow, it had pieces of fish, calamari, crab, mussels and prawns in. It was quite a big plate (for me) and the tastes were amazing!!!!! I then had the Baked Lemon Tart with cream and it was just yummy! Hein had the Grilled Kingklip with rice and veggies and he absolutely loved it! That was R150, well worth it. Pigalle isn't that busy during lunch time, but the food is really exquisite! A guy next to us had a Seafood Platter for one (R495) and it looked absolutely amazing! There was definitely a lobster on it and some other yummy seafood. I've also added pictures of clams in coriander tomato broth and Duck Spring Rolls, and few pictures of the inside.
    Such wonderful food, from a diverse and interesting menu! Such a HUGE pity that our evening was ruined by inappropriate music played too loud, red wine served warm, and a shouting match in the kitchen complete with vulgar four-letter words. We won't be back.
    Whilst I appreciate that you do two dinner seatings on Valentines day, you really should have thought it through better... you do not have the capacity to cope with that amount of diners all arriving at once. Our table had not yet been reset from after the 6,30 seating, it took an absolute age to get a bottle of wine, ice, salt, pepper and a sald. Our mains were completely underwhelming, and the sole really inadequate as a main meal (serve 2 when they are that size). Coffee was luke warm, service was mediocre to poor, given the number of diners, and your kitchen was taking strain getting mains out. We thoroghly enjoy the Melrose and Bedfordview branches, but wont be returning to this one.
