    We waited quite a while to get noticed by staff even though we booked a table and I had to actually get up and walk to the cashier to ask where we should order.

    We had a lovely meal at Clarke's. The food was amazing and the ambiance exactly what we were looking for (although cushions on those wire bar stools in the courtyard would add some comfort.) The staff, though could use some training. Please take these suggestions as offered as we are involved heavily in the restaurant business. It seems as if your tables don't have dedicated servers which works well if all of your staff is trained to pay attention to diners needs. We were approached 3 times by 3 different staff before my husband arrived from parking and explained we were waiting each time. Once he arrived the service started out well with a 4th server taking our drink order. We waiting a long time for our food despite the restaurant not being very busy. However that's not unusual in Cape Town. We also had to request more cutlery, were not checked on about the food or to be offered more drinks. My husband eventually had to search for someone to order more drinks. After lunch, again we had to flag someone down to order coffee and after lunch cocktails. Coffees arrived without spoons, sugar or milk. Your manageress (I assume she was, very short short hair) was friendly and helpful but even with masks on your wait staff were unsmiling and flat, not friendly. Maybe have a word on suggestive selling, as if they keep an eye on the tables to offer more in a timely manner, the bigger the bill the bigger the tip. We spent R900 with the tip on lunch for 4, not a small amount, and the food was absolutely worth it and we will come again but hope that maybe the staff was just tired and not up to their best and will improve the next time.
