Cape Town Bistro restaurant
This hip and happening spot in Cape Town is quaint, funky, bustling and just plain fun. At prices that cannot easily be beaten, Characters offers something for everyone, from early morning breakfasts to 'early morning' cocktails.
The menu is extensive and caters for all tastes. With light meals like butternut and blue cheese quiche with onion marmalade and a fresh green salad and tagliatelle with mascarpone, cherry tomatoes, rocket and fresh rosemary you simply cannot go wrong.
Try one of the simple, but tasty sarmies, a delectable pizza or a packed burger if you are not in the mood for too much fuss.
The bar environment is relaxing and bustling at the same time and you can enjoy a cocktail or shooter while checking out dear Marilyn on the wall.
The restaurant hosts quite a few events like speed dating nights, karaoke evenings, DJ evenings and quiz nights, so it is advised to enquire.
To cut a long story short, this is fun!
Stellenbosch Bistro restaurant
Enjoy wine, strawberries and good hearty food at this quaint, beautifully decorated eatery at the Mooiberge Farmstall on the R44. The restaurant's main focus is on serving imaginative homemade dishes made with the freshest produce.
A laid-back, elegant space awaits and offers a cool respite from a day of sightseeing. Try the blue cheese, rocket and strawberry compote pizza, counter-intuitive but delectable, or some freshly made, moist French toast, served with strawberry compote. Th lamb burger is also a must-try and they make the patties from scratch with A-grade meat. There are a variety of wraps available as well, so they really cater for a varied group.
To get you off to a good start, the Silly Billy breakfast offers two slices of macadamia and rye bread with goat's cheese, tomato pesto, mushrooms and rocket. Their take on a traditional English breakfast is The Farmer and The Farmer's Wife with eggs, bacon, bangers, tomatoes and mushrooms.
City Bowl Burgers restaurant
Enjoy one of the world's most classic dishes - with a twist. An experience at Gourmet Burger on the bustling Shortmarket Street in Cape Town is a must.
The small but cosy restaurant boasts funky décor and the interior and vibe is modern and vibrant, reflecting perhaps the remnants of the classic American-style diner.
The menu offers a selection of over 30 different burgers and there really is something for everyone. Diners can choose chicken, beef, lamb, veg, prawn or calamari to top the lightly toasted rolls. A must-try is the vegetarian Field Mushroom Burger topped with rocket, red pepper, avo and feta. Other favourites include the chicken, camembert and cranberry sauce burger and the lamb with herb mustard and blue cheese aioli. Wash it down with a Lindt chocolate shake - you'd be hard-pressed to be more indulgent. The restaurant is licensed and you can select delicious Paul Cluver wines to complement your meal.
The food is original, the atmosphere bustling and the prices reasonable.
