Absolute wonderful food. Ambiance was great and it was a beautiful evening in Cape Town. We could happily sit outside. Judi's personal touch and attention is remarkable. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough.

From the moment we walked in for a late lunch, Chef Judi Fourie gave us her full attention. Combinations of unusual flavours titillated us as we made our way through her creative menu, each plate beautifully presented with our curious questions readily ìanswered. The deep fried cauliflower with dipping sauce of fynbos vinegar that accompanied the Bream main deserves special mention as does the tonka bean pancetta which cannot be missed! What a lovely surprise this lunch was, indeed what a joy!!!!

What an experience! I was very intrigued by a restaurant with no service staff but the size makes it more understandable. Although this is a small space it does not show for the huge amount of effort and love which goes into making this experience one to remember. The chef, Judy, guides you through her masterpiece of dishes while making you feel at home. Thank you for the great experience and we hope to see you soon. Our number 1 choice for the Restaurants week.

"FRESH , NEW AND TASTY"
10.0 Cuisine 10 | Service 10 | Atmosphere 10

a Delightful little place! Loved the decor and the very yummy, tasty fresh food;
beautifully presented and very generous portion. Best of breed modern style cafe cuisine. They have a wonderfully creative G&T- and wine list, and sitting in the heart of Cape Town overlooking the square sipping an ice-cold glass makes for a wonderful meal out. Highly recommended.

About Pilcrow & Cleaver

About Pilcrow & Cleaver

pilcrow
/ˈpɪlkrəʊ/
a symbol (¶) used to mark a new paragraph

Pilcrow & Cleaver is the delicious brainchild of Chef Judi Fourie; a Cape Town restaurant fierce with bold modern flavours.

With no service staff, and no doors, windows or walls to our professional kitchen, Pilcrow & Cleaver puts you in direct contact with the chefs and cooks that make your food. We invite you to smell and anticipate modern European daily inspired menus of small plates, mains and desserts. Swirl a glass of proudly South African wine over dinner or unwind after work at our separate bar section. Browse our retail shelf’s homemade delicacies and contemplate a recipe in our bespoke cookbook collection. Or talk to us as we prepare homemade flavours right in front of you. We are pet-friendly, follow the no-tipping movement, the first restaurant in Cape Town to serve Father Coffee and during the COVID-19 lockdown we are still open for business.


Hi, I'm Chef Judi

And welcome to Pilcrow & Cleaver, a new paragraph with a different twist, something that I have dreamt about and cooked into realisation for the last 15 years.

The passion for food started to pulsate through my veins from a very young age and for the last decade I have been on a culinary journey of exploration around the world. My travels have inspired me to find new dishes, experience unique flavours and taste different food to bring it all together and share it with you from my kitchen at Pilcrow & Cleaver, right here, in the vibrant heart of Cape Town.

Food is an experiment-experience that evokes emotion. It is not perfection, it’s about expression. Cooking is an art, and the kitchen is my canvas and I want you to join me as a create dishes with a modern flair; highlighting the different unique flavours of each and every ingredient.

Let’s eat.
