The 19-on-Main Bistro is located in a hidden structure, immediately on your left as you enter Kalk Bay from Muizenberg. A favourite restaurant with locals due to it’s rustic and down to earth aesthetics, its ‘tucked away’ location, gourmet home-style cooking and endless views across the ocean, 19-on-Main Bistro has a special brand of charm.
In the Winter months, the bistro is warmed with log fires and offers hearty delights, such as lamb chops and curry buffets. In Summer the restaurant takes on a different character with lighter meals, such as salads, wraps and seafood, all enjoyed with a glass of crisp white wine peering out at the moody seas. The interiors might be ramshackle, but the food is excellent, served by passionate staff who have been there for years.
Built just behind the railway line, the views from the bistro are some of the best on offer in Kalk Bay. Enjoy the casual atmosphere on a Summer’s afternoon in Kalk Bay or warm yourself next to the fire on a chilly night.
