Gold Restaurant

This restaurant, museum and experience is definitely a must when visiting Cape Town.

We had a great time taking part in the drum lessons, having a tour of the museum and then eating dinner while enjoying the show.

The menu was great and had a variety of dishes from around Africa.

The Opal Lounge

This is by far the best cape town restaurant I have eaten at. Very classy, but not stuffy. The menu is simply and elegant.

The food cooked and presented perfectly. Very reasonably priced too.

Willoughby & Co

Not much to say about Willoughby's except that it's the regular hangout of any self-respecting sushi lover in Cape Town.

Always fresh with amazing texture and combinations - from classic to adventurous.

Superb wine list and deli atmosphere add to every outing.
