Claremont Burgers restaurant
Why write about a burger joint? It doesn't seem so odd if the burgers are more like a work of art than a meal.
3rd Hudsons are really onto a recipe for success. Great service, great portions and great fresh ingredients is at the order of the day. The best ground meats are selected and it is claimed to contain more than 20 % less fat than normal. The toppings are freshly made as well and include traditional favourites as well as more exciting options. Be sure to try the mint and jalapeno salsa, in itself an explosion of flavours. How does a perfectly cooked patty topped with tomato relish, biltong dust, chilli cream cheese and sliced battered jalapeno rings sound? Too good to be true? Not here.
The relaxed sense of humor on the menu is very refreshing and the Ba-rack-o-lama, or La Di Dah (with ostrich meat) are examples of this. For vegetarians they offer a delicious chick pea and lentil burger with fresh goat's cheese and avo.
This is a must-try and must-repeat experience.
Strand Fine Dining restaurant
Alex Garden Restaurant is situated close to the beach and offers a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of this popular seaside town.
The historical building, indigenous garden and the exquisite decor combine to create an extra special dining experience.
The menu is small but does not disappoint with starters like seared kudu carpaccio drizzled with mustard dressing and served with parmesan shavings and tomato concassé, and a twice baked goats cheese soufflé with a homemade tomato chutney. The tempura prawns with chilli mayonnaise and ginger and butternut soup with croutons are also not to be missed.
Try your palate at some game with the pan-fried blesbok rolled in mixed peppercorns with a juniper berry sauce. The panfried sole in a foamy butter sauce with lemon and parsley is a real melt-in-your-mouth option. A more traditional option is the vegetarian lasagne, rich in flavour and extremely decadent.
Good food, a great setting and reasonable prices can be found here.

Bloubergstrand Coffee Shop restaurant
Located in the Seaside Village in Bloubergstrand in Cape Town, Caffe Rossini is the perfect place to take a break. The aromas of freshly brewing coffee waft through the centre, calling shoppers in for a quick 'pick me up' and a light snack. Friendly service and fresh fabulous food are what makes Caffe Rossini such a popular place to pop in and regather and refresh.
The Caffé Rossini concept is based on the contemporary lifestyle of a 19th century Italian gentleman, Gioachino Rossini. A tenor and composer of operas, Rossini's love of music was surpassed only by his love for good coffee and good food. The Caffé Rossini philosophy mirrors the composer's classical talent and quest for excellence.
Caffé Rossini has honoured the age old traditions of making authentic Italian style coffees; Cappucinno, Espresso and other speciality hot and cold beverages since its inception in 1992. Great coffee has been our foundation since we started. Caffé Rossini has its own unique coffee blends specially blended for the local pallet but based on old style traditions.
V and A Waterfront Burgers restaurant
V and A Waterfront
This fabulous burger joint is situated in the popular V & A Waterfront and delivers on location, ambience, service and most importantly, yummy food.
When you walk in the door you'll see the staff dressed in smart uniform surrounded by elegant, warm and upmarket decor. But this joint is far from pretentious. Gibsons definitely serves up some of the best burgers in town.
Although gourmet burgers with a wide variety of toppings are at the top of the list, the menu also offers ribs, steaks, chicken, fish and salad dishes.
Start off with tender calamari that literally melts in your mouth. Or try the messy, sticky pork ribs and Gibson's secret cream sauce that complements the sweet potato fries perfectly.
The meat they use for the burger patties is full of flavour and yo can taste that it is the best of the best cuts used. The Mr Chutney burger with cheddar, bacon and chutney is a must-try and, just to treat yourself more, have a bar-one milkshake made with real bar-one chocolate.
Informal, fun and comfort food with a modern twist is what this joint is all about.
For dessert, make it a real experience by teaming this with a Bar-One milkshake with real melted Bar-One chocolate!
