Based in Silvermist in Constantia, this restaurant has a long and impressive list of awards to its name and rightly so. Listed as one of the best restaurants in the world, La Colombe offers every guest an unforgettable experience; excellent food, a wonderful atmosphere and lots of ‘wow’ moments along the way.

This exceptional steakhouse is the little sister to the world acclaimed Sandton Butcher Shop; butchery has been in this family since the 1930’s and their standards are never compromised. Find out for yourself.

This magnificent Victorian House on Kloof Street is host to a trendy and vibey restaurant offering great food and an electric atmosphere.

SALSIFY

This is the newest of Luke Dale Roberts’ (The Test Kitchen, The Pot Luck Club and The Shortmarket Club) ventures. Set in the Glen overlooking Camps Bay, it promises spectacular views. The food and wine is world class – imaginative, perfectly presented, beautifully.

UPPER BLOEM

A great new addition to Cape Town and easy walking distance from the hotel, Upper Bloem offers seasonal fare on small plates; its terroir approach extends beyond using local produce, it also bows to the variety of cultures Cape Town has to offer and infuses these into the uniqueness of their offering.

BELUGA

Nestled in The Foundary, a 100 year old art-deco setting, Beluga has something for everyone; a great bar, an impressive courtyard, an atmospheric dining room and an exclusive wine attic. Whether you are looking for a cocktail, some great sushi or a long relaxing dinner, Beluga will hit the spot.

THE BLACK SHEEP
