Test Kitchen

Cape Towns´ best valuated restaurant within the last years is located in an old Bisquit Mill. Luke Dale-Roberts whips by using the best you find at the cape the very best. Cool location in a styled factory ambience in Woodstock.

Pot Luck Club

In every sense a top restaurant: first-class cuisine by chef Luke Dale-Roberts – of course. As there is no reason to forget about cooking on his short way from Test Kitchen to Pot Luck Club. Just a stone throw away and some floors up on the top of the Biscuit Mill. The experience is tasteful and eye-minded: 360 degree view onto the flashy sea and of the town at the same time. Unbeatable.


You will not find beach bars in Cape Town. But: in Camps Bay they arranged for a perfect alternative. At the seafront one restaurant is next to the other. Viewing the ocean and offering all you may desire If you ask for our recommendation: PARANGA. Tuna tarta with avocado, one of the most fabulous beef steaks ever, chilled white wine…. yummi!


Enjoying a cocktail and easily start into the night. The in-crowd absorbs the groove of town, DJs sound fills up the dance floor and the in-bar at Kloof Street vibrates in swing.


If your tongue wants to turn a somersault we recommend a tour to Hout Bay. After years in London, Barcelona and Asia, Cheyne opened a restaurant under his own name. Fusion style cooking at the cape – risotto, burger, pak choi and swordfish ceviche – to mention just a few dishes. The only task is to try every dish in one night. That means: you have to come back. Alternatively you enjoy Cheyne´s culinary skills at SHIO in THE GREY.


Location, location, location! Let the sea breeze caress your face. The view onto the sea is unbeatable, always good-humored service pleases you while serving steak tartar, freshly grilled catch of the day. Sorry, we are not describing paradise – but really something close to that.

Kloof Street House

It looks like a mixture between and old-fashioned noble pub and an English club, but it is one of the hotspots in town. The food is unpretentious, but incredibly tasty. It is imperative to try the salted caramel cheese cake. It titillates you palate – for sure!

Mother’s Ruin Gin Bar

That should rather stay an insiders´ tip. Up front at the street precious fancy chocolate creations attract you to come into a sweet paradise – of brownies, tartes and skulls made of chocolate. But this is only the beginning: at the very end of this narrow shop you will meet friend of juniper and choose between 40 different kinds in Cape Towns wicked (and smallest) gin bar.

Chef’s Canteen

Left hand side in Chef´s Warehouse they sell the perfect tools, right hand side in the Canteen they show how to use it. For lunch or dinner you have one choice: “Tapas for two”. That they call is tapas can be called the understatement of the century. Especially mentioned: serving eight palatal tickling dishes in three courses takes one hour during lunch time. We are sure that every minute pays off.

Grand Africa Café und Beach

Right next to the stadium and the Waterfront this beach club demonstrates what a shabby chic corrugated sheet iron storehouse and tons of banked up sand can stand for. Maybe the coolest and most appetizing way to enjoy glistering noonday sun, viewing the Atlantic ocean. High model density. Super style and super easy.


What they say about themselves sounds objective: delicatessen, patisserie, restaurant, coffee bar. Only those in the know are aware of this covering the best breakfast in town. Careful – danger of becoming addicted, even for those who normally only have a cup of coffee as a start into the day.
