Pet friendly Restaurants in Cape Town

Recently we found a lost dog, a beautiful golden Labrador with violet eyes, and the sweetest demeanor. No one claimed her and she became part of the family. We named her Perdie, and she was the perfect dog - our absolute shadow. She suffered from separation an...

Jason Sushi and Restaurant – a review

Tucked away in the quiet suburb of Welgemoed near Durbanville, you can find a relatively new restaurant called Jason’s Sushi. The restaurant took over from a rather dingy branch of Mamma Roma that was seriously in decline. Jason bought the space and revamped i...

Tables at Nitida is a relatively new eatery on the Durbanville wine route, opening its doors in November last year. Since then, it has had a fantastic start, perhaps in part due to the success of Nitida’s Cassia, which is renowned for its stylish food. Tables ...

Closer – purely vegan food, in Muizenberg

'So what does Closer stand for?', I ask Michelle as she hands us the menu. We're sitting at a cosy table and chairs in the new (ish) café and eatery where items like Fairtrade coffee, trendy raw chocolate (if you haven't managed to sample any, you don't know w...

Addis in Cape Town – eating with your hands is all it’s cut out to be

As you have no doubt derived from the rather obvious name of the restaurant, Addis in Cape Town is a bit of Ethiopia bang smack in the middle of Cape Town. I don't usually do 'theme' restaurants, particularly those aimed at tourists. To be honest, I don't g...

Two Oceans Restaurant – Feasting where the two oceans meet

Lunch at Lanzerac in Stellenbosch

We spent the recent Heritage Day long weekend in the Cape Winelands and had lunch at Lanzerac on Friday.  I’d spent a few hours at the Spa and feeling a bit peckish we opted for what was close at hand – The Taphuis!  There was a fresh breeze blowing so we were...
