"Great experience!"

Nocture provides a high quality dining experience. The highlight was our main, namely the pap amasi hit the spot. We did the wine pairing and a cocktail pairing, can’t really pick one over the other. We were so full by the end of the night, we rolled ourselves back to Cape Town!

"Good evening, but not blown away"
8.7 Cuisine 6 | Service 10 | Atmosphere 10

Nice evening spot for a drink or a light dinner.
The atmosphere is good and the staff friendly.
Food wise, the dishes I selected were tasty, but I was almost still hungry after at the end of the meal.
Delicate presentation and combination of flavors. A bit disappointed though re the dessert... A simple tart without any special texture m presentation or component.
