Bloemfontein Fine Dining restaurant
1 on Park is used as the training facility for third-year graduate students at the Central University of Technology. A seven-course menu is produced by students of the culinary arts and the beautiful, romantic interior adds to the elegance and upmarket feel. The menu is seasonal and changes all the time. A seven-course degustation menu, composed by chef Sune Niemand, is served by trained hotel-school student waiters. No expense is spared on the fine silver cutlery and crystal glassware, which add to the intimate and romantic atmosphere. The set menu offers treats and masterpieces like the blue cheese souffle with plum preserve and a dark chocolate fondant with white chocolate veloute.
Illovo Bistro restaurant
This beautiful little patisserie is a feast for the eyes and the tastebuds. Real French butter on a freshly baked French baguette, macaroons, a variety of decadent cakes (expecially mentionable is the red velvet), amazing cupcakes, and great light lunches make up the treats here. Eat in or take away your sinful pleasure.
A charming country restaurant experience in the remote, yet easily accessible Tonteldoos. This tasting room offers the opportunity to sample and purchase traditional cheese straight from the farm without having to venture out of town.
Soft white cheeses with garlic and herbs, marinated feta with jalapeño and smoked paprika are some of the new additions to the stable of classics. Other products include great honey, jams and Wensleydale sundried tomatoes.
The Bergen Cheese is set in beautiful garden and are open from Monday to Sunday, from 9 am to 5 pm.
Cape Town Burgers restaurant
If you have ever wondered what real street food is, wonder no further. This little restaurant is located on arguably the busiest strip in Cape Town - Long Street.
Don't be fooled be the rustic (very rustic) interior. Just grab a high chair or a bench, order and await a new kind of delight. The Burger Shop, true to its name, offers mainly burgers, chips and stuff on rolls, but the portions are big and the nostalgia the street food evokes is something quite unique.
The dining process can become quite messy as it is 'illegal' to eat a burger with anything else than your hands, but this is part of the fun and colourful vibes that especially this part of Cape Town offers.
This is definitely not something to try if you prefer fine dining in a posh spot, but if you want a unique, proudly South African experience, pop in here.
Emmarentia Coffee Shop restaurant
This quaint coffee shop and bistro offers value-for-money meals. Great breakfasts, light meals and especially their freshly baked breads all form part of a well thought out menu. The restaurant regularly hosts baking lessons and events, so watch out for those. Wi-Fi is available throughout. They also provide catering and the venue is available for private functions.
Parktown North Fine Dining restaurant
At Cube's Kitchen it truly is all about the food. Seating only 30 guests at a time, Cube provides an intimate atmosphere in which your tastebuds will be tantalized. Six to 14 small courses are served and paired with wine - usually lots of it.=No corkage fee is charged and booking is essential. For an unforgettable dining experience with family and friends, try Cube.
Hout Bay Mexican restaurant
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.
Calvinia South African restaurant
Die Blou Nartjie serves traditional cuisine with a modern flair. The menu is large and offers great grills, seafood and even a wide range of vegetarian dishes. Die Blou Nartjie is fully licensed and can seat up to 30 people. A must-try dish is the Hantam lamb, and the steaks are always well matured. A good wine list is available.
Pearly Beach Bistro restaurant
Die Rooibier is next to the café in Pearly Beach. It has been running for a long time and a well-known establishment in Pearly Beach. Die Rooibier is a come-as-you-are kind of place and everybody you meet here will greet you with a smile. If you are looking to speak to some locals for some fishing advice, this is your pit stop.
The menu is pub style with some good seafood dishes available – well, it is Pearly Beach. The food is freshly prepared and the milkshakes made from real ice cream. If you are looking for something a little stronger, then do not fret. The bar is fully stocked and everyone knows how to have a good time in this little town.
Specials are often found written on the blackboard outside and always great value for money! If you are looking for information, a snack and a drink, or a full meal and refreshment, this is where you will find it in Pearly Beach.
Please call for further information.
Wednesday to Monday, from 10 am until late;
Tuesday from 12 pm until 5 pm.
Velddrif Seafood restaurant
Die Vishuis Restaurant is situated on the bank of the Berg River, in the West Coast town of Velddrif. This restaurant was once a real 'vishuis' where the fisherman used to salt the harders in big tanks. What remains of those days are the sea shells in the original sand walls, portions of which have been uncovered.
This quirky little national monument has been kept appealingly genuine, complete with open beams and a long stoep where you can eat seafood as well as other scrumptious dishes and enjoy the flamingos, pelicans and herons because this is a major wetland area.
A restaurant called Die Vishuis must of course have a scrumptious fish and seafood menu but this is not all that is served, Herman who has 31 years experience in the hospitality trade has put his wide experience to good use, creating seasonal and interesting West Coast dishes.
You will be made welcome as you arrive at the door. After being shown to your table your friendly waiter will help you select your meal from the menu and if needed will call Herman for any further assistance if required.
Being a small intimate restaurant we are able to create personal service for your enjoyment and relaxation throughout your meal. Guests are welcome to bring own Wine and Beer along - no corkage charged, as we are not licensed yet.
Stellenbosch Sushi restaurant
Genki Sushi certainly lives up to its name, because the Japanese term ‘genki’ translates to ‘Fine or Great’. This authentic Japanese Sushi restaurant offers its visitors a delicious slice into typical everyday Japanese cuisine while soaking up the Stellenbosch vibe.
In keeping with its eastern style, the restaurant is not all table and chairs, though such seating is available outside. The Sushi bar, complete with sushi chefs working alongside the owner of the establishment, is the best seat in the house for a quick bite while marvelling at the art of sushi preparation and negotiating chop sticks, wasabi and soy sauce.
More than just sushi, Genki Sushi also offers patrons a great selection of Japanese style tappas and side dishes to the likes of tako sunomono (boiled octopus salad with wakame and cucumber), yakitori and a South African inspired kudu-shi which is thinly sliced kudu meat served with sushi rice. The restaurant also has a small selection of wines to complement its food.
Located at the very heart of town activity, Genki Sushi is an ideal spot for a Far East eating experience.
Hoedspruit Light Meals restaurant
The GKNP College is a hospitality training centre, located right outside the Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate.

Stellenbosch Coffee Shop restaurant
Green Gates is a relaxed, quaint little spot that offers a delicious lunch buffet. All the dishes are freshly made on the day and only the freshest ingredients are used. The menu is seasonal ensuring the best flavours and the best quality. Enjoy one of the delicious wines on offer with your meal - even take a bottle or two home with you. There is also a list of dishes and cakes that diners can order in advance.
Berea Breakfast restaurant
A garden café, our restaurant is nestled between the shady trees of the Green with Envy nursery and offers a delicious assortment of meals, from hearty and healthy breakfast to cakes, coffee and light lunches. It’s the perfect place for friends to meet!
Our seating capacity is 40 pax; trading hours from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to Sunday.
We also have a fabulously fresh function venue in this well-loved nursery. Ideal for your next event, the venue caters for up to 60 people and you are welcome to bring your own catering. Alternatively our restaurant can plan a menu according to your budget and requirements.
The nursery, Green with Envy Plant Nursery, is where you will find top-quality plants and truly inspirational gardening ideas. Exciting news: our landscape division is headed by Patsi, who will take on anything from your veranda pots to a full garden landscape. We also offer garden consultations.
Stellenbosch Contemporary restaurant
Guardian Peak is essentially a winery - with a restaurant. From entering the farm, following the road through the vineyards and finding the restaurant nestled against the breathtaking backdrop of the Helderberg Mountain, one will soon buy into the “living the lifestyle” concept that drives this establishment.
If it’s modernity that one seeks, then Guardian Peak will certainly meet expectations. The open plan restaurant boasts a demonstration kitchen, allowing guests to experience the energy and synergy that takes place in a professional kitchen. The menu’s contemporary interpretation of ‘wine with food’ pairing (and not the other way round) leaves no room for ignorant choices when it comes to marrying food with drink.
The menu, which is seasonal, is wickedly extravagant. Besides a fare of traditional venison and lamb, patrons will be hard pressed not to succumb to temptations of Courgette & Goats cheese soufflé, Roasted Apple and Raisin Pork Belly or Quail Breast stuffed with bacon and sage.
Soak up the South African sunshine on the terrace or feel right at home with the warmth of the fireplace in winter, either way Guardian Peak is a great lunch location.
