Just off the main thoroughfare between the Cape Town Waterfront and the aerial cable way to Table Mountain lies Miller's Thumb Restaurant.  Established in 1995, one of the Cape's best kept secrets.


Orange hues and startling green draw you into our bustling, yet cozy character-filled converted home and an air redolent with aromas of freshly prepared seafood-inspired fare.

Co-owner Jane, the better half of this experienced and skilled husband and wife team entices you with mouthwatering descriptions and suggestions; I follow through on the plate with "roll up your sleeves", "ask for a finger bowl" and "dig in", creations all capably supported by our dedictated staff.

I am Solly,                                         WELCOME! 

P.S.  You carnivores too are not even vaguely sidelined by our fish dominated menu

  • July 10, 2012.  "This place is a local gem. It was definitely our favourite place in Cape Town, so much so we went twice in 5 days! My mouth waters when I think about the calamari. The chocolate pecan pie has to be one of the best desserts I've ever had. I can't wait to go back to Cape Town just to go back here." 
  • July 21, 2012.  "Our hotel recommended that we went here for dinner and we were delighted with their recommendation. The food was delicious, the atmosphere warm and welcoming and the waiting staff and Jane (the owner) were charming."


June 13, 2012.  "we almost didn't go because we were a bit tired from the dzy's activities. Glad we did go as I would've regretted not going! Food and service excellent! Our server made us feel so at home. Had the seafood soup and mussels for starters and kob fish for our main dish in chili lime sauce, and it was wonderful! Came out very satisfied indeed!"  

September 3rd 2012.  "My husband and I were in Cape Town last week and were looking for a place to enjoy some fresh oysters and good food. We are really happy we chose Miller's Thumb for dinner. Its a lovely, colorful restaurant and the hosts were really nice and social. They had lots of specials on the menu and we decided to go with oysters, white fish (kingklip) cooked Malay style and another kingklip cooked in a sauce with lychee (special prep for the day!). The food was yumm!! Oysters were fresh and both the main courses were very well prepared. There was another special on the menu which we would have loved to order but we were completely full - it was the bengal fish curry. Everything about the restaurant was nice - ambience, hospitality, menu and food. We had a lovely evening!"  Tania_Goel

We had an amazing meal there last night, the food was fantastic, best fish I have had in a restuarant. The service was warm and the owner was so helpful and incredibly friendly. I will definitely go there again when back in CT."  Tania J
