Pilcrow & Cleaver is a Cape Town restaurant fierce with flavour and filled bold modern Euro-flavours. A combination of food lovers, cookbooks and people.

Pilcrow & Cleaver isn’t a final destination, it’s a vessel. A constant new start with weekly changing menus, dancing to the rhythm of the seasons.

With no service staff, Pilcrow & Cleaver puts you in direct contact with the chefs and cooks that make your food. We abolished the idea of doors, windows and walls to our professional kitchen to take you on a personal culinary voyage. If you just want to unwind after work or enjoy pre-dinner drinks you can relax in Pilcrow & Cleaver’s separate bar section where you’ll find, among other, some of South Africa’s best wines and local craft beer. We follow the no-tipping movement, we pay our staff – from front to back of house – appropriately so that they do not have to rely on customers’ tips.

As you smell and anticipate modern European daily inspired menus of small plates, mains and desserts, swirl a glass of proudly South African wine while contemplating a recipe in our bespoke collectors’ cookbooks. And browse our retail shelf for delicacies and items such as homemade marmalades, pickles and branded aprons to name a few.

Or talk to us as we prepare homemade flavours right in front of you.
