EAT. 

Delaire Graff 

This estate is an island of luxury; whether you’re here to relax at the spa, eat like a king, or simply sink into a sofa with a bottle of wine.

We had lunch there, the place is beautiful with jaw-dropping mountain views.

The chef has created a menu that focuses on local produce and ingredients.

You should definitely try the oysters that match perfectly with Delaire’s estate wine.

$$$

Babylostern Green House

Tucked away between the oak trees, this greenhouse offers guests the perfect place to rest and enjoy delicious meals.

All the food is served picnic-style in wooden crates with the preserves, jams and salads packaged in weck jars.

$$

The Foodbarn Restaurant

One of the best restaurants I have ever been to.

Located in the Noordhoek Farm Village, this place has a friendly, happy and welcoming atmosphere.

The food is tasty and rich, and portions are generous.
The prawn fritters and risotto are to die for.

Not to miss if you are around Noordhoak!

$$$

Kloof house

Set in a Victorian house with an outside dining area, this place has a comforting old-world charm.
Prints, mirrors, historical images of Cape Town, human/animal portraits, vintage luggages, amongst other details, are  what make the interior so eclectic!

We loved it so much we went there twice, for dinner and for brunch (they host super cool jazz afternoon every Sunday afternoon)

$$$

Carne 
Meat lovers, do not miss this place.
Superb steakhouse with nice atmosphere and kind of a milanese flair!

$$$

Pot Luck Club

Tucked on the last floor of an Old biscuit mil with views of the ocean, the mountain and the city, this place is an experience on its own.
Dishes are organized according to flavor: salty, sweet, umami, sour and bitter and the chef focuses on creating a series of mouthwatering small plates in order for you to taste as much as possible.
Try the beef fillet with chocolate and coffee sauce or almond tart served with malted-popcorn ice cream.

DRINK.

Asoka
The eclectic ambience, decor and atmosphere all lend to a great experience.
If you love live jazz and deep house nights, this is the place to go.
