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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Cape Town Italian restaurant
House of Pasta is an unpretentious eatery in Cape Town that does exactly what the name suggest, it serves pasta. Traditional and authentic Italian flavours and aromatic aromas combine to draw visitors in from Cape Town's busy street.
Try a traditional carbonara or bolognaise, served on your choice of pasta, or a more adventurous seafood option.
Diners must not expect an upmarket experience but if te quality of the food is at all important, this is one to visit.
Large portions and a vibrant atmosphere in one of Cape Town's busiest locations makes this restaurant unique, quirky and just plain fun.
Muizenberg Deli restaurant
Kitch Kombuis in Muizenberg Village is owned by local personality, passionate restauranteur and people person, Derek Harrison.

Great emphasis is placed on serving excellent coffee and providing light snacks, baked and made by members of the Muizenberg community.

Cape Town Light Meals restaurant
This Cape Town restaurant serves as a cool respite from the heat, hustle and craziness of the city. Knead offers great, light meals, perfect for a long sit-down lunch or a bite on the go.
The beautiful dining room is a mix of the old and the new with beautiful light and dar wood touches, rustic shelves stacked with baking goods, a traditional pizza/bread oven and, in contrast, cool-coloured green light fittings that look modern and sleek.
The menu offers a variety of dishes, but keeps to simple cuisine like sandwiches and pizzas. The bakery offers fresh breads and pastries every day and diners can be sure to leave with armfuls of sinful indulgences.

Century City Coffee Shop restaurant
Sinful, as the name suggests, is the word that comes to mind. This beautifully presented little coffee shop reminds of everything indulgent.
The delectable coffees, imported all the way from Ethiopia, are definitely the focus point and highlight. The Scuro Blend from Illy is served and is a dark roast with hints of caramel - a must-try.
For the peckish, Love, Revenge, Cappucino serves freshly made pancakes, mouthwatering sandwiches and a huge selection of wicked cakes and cupcakes.
Be sure to try the selection of gelato, preferably in a divine sugar cone.
Love, Revenge, Cappucino - the name says it all.
Cape Town Burgers restaurant
Mr Pickwick's is no doubt named after the entertaining and endearing Charles Dickens character of the Pickwicks Papers fame.
This quaint, yet vibrant restaurant has an extremely rustic feel to it, so do not expect an upmarket experience. However, if good conversation, scrumptious food and quirky furnishings are your thing, this is the place to go.
The restaurant has more of a student feel to it, so bring the youth inside you and join the clan.
The burgers are really filling and many a review has been written about them. It certainly is something to try. The most amazing milkshakes and ice creams are on offer and you will be astounded by the amount of flavours. From normal strawberry and chocolate to Turkish delight and caramel and almond.
Funky painted tins for light shades, vintage-style crockery, a bustling artsy atmosphere and good old comfort food is what you'll find at Mr. Pickwicks.
City Bowl Lebanese restaurant
Quirky, funky, edgy and unique - this is Mugged on Roeland. Apart from the awesome, original name, this little eatery and coffee shop really impresses with its one-of-a-kind style, cuisine and ambience.
Mugged on Roeland serves great comfort food for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, although breakfast can be enjoyed all day long - as it should be. The restaurant is open from 7 am until 10 pm and different specials are offered every day of the week.
Mugged is fully licensed so you can get 'mugged' here on Roeland whenever you want. The cuisine is a combination of Lebanese dishes and fusion food, making this the ideal spot for an informal business lunch or a cool night out.

This quaint, eccentric restaurant and vintage shop is called Pajamas and Jam, now we know they have a sense of humor. This lightheartedness shines through in everything except the quality of products you will find here.
Here you will find interesting variations on traditional breads and salads, as well as salad dressings. The menu changes on a daily basis so a surprise is never too far away.
The sweet stuff is simply delectable an include a Portuguese milk tart and scrumptious carrot cake. Do yourself a favour and order the hot chocolate made with Lindt chocolate balls. The double chocolate brownies are also very popular.
