1 | Reuben’s Restaurant
Headed up by South African celebrity chef, Reuben Riffel, this fusion menu is a celebration of the Cape’s rich culinary heritage and its diversity of flavours. You’re obviously a wine lover (I mean, you live in Cape Town), so the fact that their Wine Loft houses over 5,000 bottles of wine and up to 700 references makes your heart race, right? Just take your pick!
2 | 15 on Orange
With spectacular views of Table Mountain and the city, 15 on Orange is set in the upmarket suburb of Gardens and is a must visit (especially for their Asian-inspired flavours). Some of our favourites are the Thai Chicken and Prawn curry bowls, or the Teriyaki Salmon Poke Bowl. We even got to try their Bali-inspired signature cocktail – a definite must!
3 | Copa Restaurant
Situated in the stylish Pepper Club Hotel, Copa Restaurant offers a contemporary menu in an elegant yet modern setting. Featuring locally-sourced ingredients and a range of tempting dishes, Copa satisfies all palates. One thing to mention is the hotel’s Dinner And Movie night: delish dinner followed by popcorn and a movie. Yes please!
4 | Spice on Main
Did someone say al fresco? Uhm, when can we go then? The restaurant has become well-known for the outside, shaded deck as well as its friendly service and well-priced menu. If you’re not a fan of outdoor dining, no worries, the restaurant also offers indoor seating with an informative wine display to add to the ambiance.
5 | Harveys Restaurant
The ambiance strikes you immediately. With wonderful sea views and harmonious decor, you’ll catch those casual feels instantly. Famous for their scrumptious lunch and dinner menu, the open air courtyard has a colonial Cuban feel. Do yourself a favour and give Harvey’s a go.
