Strand Contemporary restaurant
This wonderful, relatively new restaurant is situated a stone's throw from the beach in Strand and is the ideal hangout for long, lazy lunches and beautiful dinners. The menu is refreshing and creative with dishes like gourmet baguettes, original, gourmet pizzas and the favourite sharing food - sushi.
Try the bitterballen as a starter, five traditional round Dutch croquettes served with mustard, or a lovely picnic basket for two filled with a French baguette, garlic gamba’s, Italian cold meat cuts, brie and gorgonzola, fig preserve, fruit, marinated olives, salad, Amsterdammertjes, sparkling wine or Ega Rooibos tea. This should be ordered two hours in advance.
The pizzas are truly unique and the breakfast pizza with free range eggs and bacon topped with Parmigiano Reggiano is a must-try.
A wide variety of coffees, teas, wines, dessert wines and sparkling wines are available.
As Carolina says: 'Buon appetito, Lekker eet, Enjoy, Bon appétit, Eet smakelijk, Selamat makan, Born up a tree!'

Hout Bay German restaurant
Hout Bay(1.6 km from False Bay)
Having spent their entire working lives in the food and hospitality industry - both locally and internationally - new owners, Kurt and Petra Schramm, have all the right qualifications to firmly place Alpenstube on the destination restaurant map in the picturesque surrounds of Hout Bay. Much needed improvements include a new front patio, a revamped outside bar and beer garden, and a fireplace for the cold winters.
Alpenstube offers a very versatile indoor-outdoor dining experience where you can relax and savour an imported German draught beer in the garden, have coffee and homemade pastries on the front patio, and enjoy a leisurely lunch or intimate dinner in the cosy interior. Aside from its large following of locals who carry them through the winter months, Alpenstube is fortunate to have many overseas visitors – German, Dutch and English - who, like the swallows, return year after year to their favourite Hout Bay haunt.
Now open at lunch time, the well-priced menu features traditional specialties such as Geschnetzeltes, thinly sliced port fillet in a creamy mushroom sauce, alongside light meals such as the Chef’s Burger, seasonal salads and a couple of soups. Master Chef Kurt has thoughtfully included several menu items specifically for children so that Alpenstube can be enjoyed by the whole family.
The signature dish must surely be the traditional Eisbein, but please call in advance to check availability. Other dinner recommendations are the grilled Fillet Steak, as well as Schnitzels to suit all tastes – pork, veal and chicken. You will also find fresh fish on the menu when available from the harbor. The pastries, desserts and cakes are all homemade, so why not indulge in whatever takes your fancy.
Hout Bay Mexican restaurant
Hout Bay(1.7 km from False Bay)
Delight your taste buds with wholesome hearty food in a relaxed intimate setting distinctly Mexican. The colourful lighting and authentic memorabilia blended with funky tunes transports you to the lively back streets of Mexico.
Aromatic spices dressed with vivid colours and flavours tantalise your taste buds with an abundance of margarita and tequila to put out the flames for those brave enough to sample the chilli on tap.
Seating just 22 patrons inside - this hip and happening tequila shrine offers great value for money and starter portions large enough to pass around the table.
On balmy summer days, laze around beneath the old El Dinal by the river while satisfying your palette with tacos, burritos, enchiladas and temptingly delicious frozen margaritas.
Hout Bay(2 km from False Bay)
Nestled at the foot of the picturesque Chapman's Peak Drive lies the The Chapmans Peak Hotel Restaurant. Regarded as a local institution, having been established over 30 years ago, it has earned the reputation of being the grand old lady of outdoor seafood restaurants in Cape Town.
Calamari at the Chapman's Peak was voted as "one of top 20 things to do in Cape Town". Seafood might be the specialty of the restaurant, but grilled steaks and venison are a must.
A popular meat dish is the “Portuguese Steak” – cubed fillet served with our secret sauce – served in a pan. Also served is the typical Portuguese Espetada – steak on a skewer. Looking for somewhere with a fireplace during those cold winter night? Look no further than the Chapman Peak Restaurant.
