They say: "Bizerca Bistro is a place where we serve down-to-earth food with exceptional skill, great passion, and – very often – a good laugh! In France, there is a bistro on every corner, where traditional food is served in a relaxed environment. We’ve never been traditionalists, and so, while you will find classic French dishes such as cassoulet, you will also find many new dishes from our years in Australia, and now Cape Town. Our signature dish for many years, the braised farmed pigs trotter with seared scallop, is such a dish."

Parker Cottage Guesthouse says: "Laurent and Cyrillia took a real leap of faith in opening a modern French bistro in the Foreshore, Cape Town’s business district, a few years ago. The venue is a glass garage (really) and the décor is minimalist and chic, not cosy with the food as a wonderful take on the traditional. Ignore the menu and go straight to the huge specials board, which Cyrillia will talk you through in person. This is a real food kind of place, proper portions on a nice round plate."
