Clifton Contemporary restaurant
This laid-back, yet sophisticated restaurant is situated on the popular Clifton shore and provides unique experience when it comes to food, ambience and location. A world-class setting, rivalled by very few, will transport you to the distant echoes of your dream life.
The deck allows you breathtaking views of the 12 Apostles, Lion's Head and the Clifton beachfront. The interior is an eclectic, perfect mix of clean, light breezy colours and opulent baroque-style fittings complete with ornate chandeliers. Outside the 'beach bungalow' feel will envoke the spirit of the ocean and a cool splash pool reminds you that no expense was spared creating this not-so-humble abode.
The menu offers everything from a light lunch to sushi to gorgeous dinners. The cuisine is modern and imaginative and the food looks too good to eat at times.
Try the Namibian Crab Claw Tempura, crispy tempura batter with a chilli and lemon sauce, or the Line Fish Carpaccio comprising just that with lemon zest and Italian parsley gremolata. The zucchini and tomato fritters are also must-tries. Succulent lamb cutlets perfectly grilled with thyme and rosemary lemon salt and the Venison of the day in their secret basting sauce will not disappoint.
End your 'experience' (cause that's what it is) with a decadent chocolate ganache torte with mixed berry ice cream or the luscious and fresh vanilla yogurt panacotta.
More we cannot say. You are sure to enjoy this one.

A Home away from home,
Nestled between two giant palm trees on the far side of Regent Street in Sea Point, Italian restaurant Casa Nostra is a slice of home-style Italian comfort that in Cape Town, is particularly hard to come by.
Translated, Casa Nostra means “Our House” – but I suppose we lied because here at Casa Nosta, we would like you to consider our house, your house, by making yourself truly at home.
Our kitchen is another story in itself. Spearheaded by a passionate (and slightly temperamental) head chef, our kitchen prides itself on the best homemade pasta this side of the Atlantic. And our rustic-style pizzas have also proved more than popular with the locals and the returning tourists. However, apart from our homely food, we acknowledge that a good dining experience draws from a number of factors.
When they’re not playing backgammon or drinking copious amounts of coffee at outside tables, our trusted and welcoming team who run the floor will go to great lengths to make sure you’re comfortable and well-looked after.
Whether it’s a special occasion or a private function, we will accommodate anyone and everyone, but be sure to book a table because with no more than fifteen of them, we tend to fill up quite fast on most nights.
Just like a home, it takes a combined effort to make a restaurant work and having been open for a little over two years, we hope to brighten the street with our red and white checked tablecloths long into the future. So whether your prefer an ice local cold beer or a tall glass of Sangiovese, pop in and let Casa Nosta cater to your every culinary desire.
