Bistrot Bizerca

in Sip & Bite
Bistrot Bizerca has had Cape Town buzzing for months now but I have taken forever to finally go there!

The reviews I had read on this place were quite mixed, most praising the food and general ambience however some said the food left something to be desired and /or the service was bad… so I went with an open mind, excited to see what the experience would bring! 

Upon arrival I was greeted by very friendly staff and shown to our table in the courtyard. It was a beautiful day with the sun steaming down on the quaint outdoor space.

Once all the guests arrived we placed our order – I was told to try their famous salmon salad and wow it did not disappoint! Some of my friends ordered the gnocchi and the fish.

Unfortunately the rest of our experience there was not great, our food all arrived at different times, the one dish only arriving as we were finishing our salads – we informed management about this and to compensate they treated the table to sorbet on the house. We appreciated this gesture but I’m sad to say that our lunch had already been spoiled by this incident. So my final opinion is that their food is great and I will give them another chance but they would need to really impress me in order to ensure that I become a regular.
