Jonkershuis Restaurant at Groot Constantia – a review

I’ve had breakfast at Jonkershuis, I’ve had lunch at Jonkershuis, I’ve had scones and tea at Jonkershuis and finally, on Friday evening, I had dinner at Jonkershuis Restaurant!  We planned ahead and booked a table but on arrival at Groot Constantia we realised...

Café Roux in Noordhoek, perfect for families or a leisurely luncheon

Pizza for Lunch at Posticino – a highlight of Sea Point

There's something decidedly hodge podge about Posticino – the virtually emerald green sign indicating the restaurant, the rather glamorous and trendy outdoor terrace that looks like something out of Italy, the almost overcumbersome arches, and then the quaint,...

La Perla in Sea Point – a review

Café Jo Brown – a Long Street experience not to be missed

Café Jo Brown might lie just off the top end of Long Street in Buiten Street, in Cape Town's thriving City Bowl, but in truth its flavour, personality and fresh faced candor means it deserves to take its place on Long Street, in amongst the stream of other din...

Breakfast at Cafeen in Harfield Village, Cape Town

I often drive past this little place on Third Avenue in Harfield Village but I haven’t yet had the chance to go in and experience it. There are always lots of cars parked outside and on a Saturday morning it looks filled to bursting with people, which is alway...

Vanilla Cafe – Slow life in Greyton continues with breakfast, lunches and high teas

Putting a bouncy castle in your back garden is an almost full proof guarantee of clientèle. Or at least, those of a certain age group. If you're in the presence of a four-year old, there is virtually no stronger magnet. 'Mom, it's a jumpy castle!' emitted t...

Liquorice and Lime in Kloof Street – a review

Something I haven’t done for quite a long time is have brunch with my girl friends and yesterday we decided it was about time to get together for a good old skinner and a delicious food. The venue was Liquorice and Lime on the top end of Kloof Street in Cape T...

Cape Point Vineyards – wine, sea and views in Noordhoek

There are a few things that impress you about Cape Point Vineyards. For one, few people even know that a wine estate exists here just below the entrance to Chapman's Peak with incredible views over Long Beach (okay, you do have to hike it for about five minute...

Myoga Restaurant at The Vineyard – A Review

We arrived at Myoga Restaurant at The Vineyard Hotel in Newlands to much fan-fare on Friday night; road closures, an obvious police presence, paparazzi and a film crew.  Goodness I thought, they shouldn’t have gone to all this trouble just for us!  What it was...
