Cape Town Restaurant Tips from our Experts

Authentic and Economical: V&A Food Market

Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Dock Rd, Cape Town

Nearly nowhere else in the city is the variety and inventiveness of South African cuisine is as evident as it is at the V&A Food Market. Authentic and unpretentious, this former power station on the famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, offers everything that a gourmand’s heart desires – from juicy burgers and thin, hand-tossed pizzas to aromatic Asian broths, curries, grilled meat and some excellent coffee, juice and wine. It’s a popular meeting place for visitors and locals alike, where you can find tasty and healthy food fast.

Tip: Try the hearty springbok wraps – a culinary revelation!

Mid-range: Mzansi

45 Harlem Avenue, Cape Town

An evening at Mzansi is absolutely extraordinary! Not only will you find original African home-cooking that tastes delicious, but it is also cooked and served with love – accompanied by laughter, song and dance. Mzansi is located in a township (don’t worry, the journey is absolutely safe!), and offers you an refreshingly authentic insight into African tribal life: all guests sit together at one communal table, listening to live music and stories from the hosts.

High-end: Pigalle Restaurant

57 A, Somerset Road, Cape Town

If you love seafood, you’ll feel right at home in Pigalle. This spacious restaurant is famous for its excellent fresh fish and seafood dishes. Live music plays everyday – perfect for a romantic evening to round off your South Africa visit.

Tip: Be sure to try the lobsters cooked in butter garlic sauce.
