From cool and off-beat street food eateries to fine-dining spots that spark joy - here are just a few of the most romantic and beautiful restaurants to choose from in Cape Town. 

Tjing Tjing Torii  

Torii is a vibrant but casual, no reservations diner which closely resembles traditional street food alleys in Japan. The space is inspired by the multiple layers of old and modern Tokyo, and the food is pretty damn good too. 

Athletics Club and Social

The best place in Cape Town to go for an Old Fashioned, this restaurant and bar is situated in a 19th century three-storey building. Expect an old athletics club with a jazzy edge. 

Bao Down

This tiny 18-seater, neighbourhood spot is a pastel paradise. Expect to order many, many, many pretty small plates stacked with succulent Bao, prawn toast and more. 

Eike by Bertus Basson 

Stellenbosch is known affectionately as 'Eikestad', and Bertus Basson's most recent venture, Eike celebrates Stellenbosch and South African cuisine in all its beauty and diversity. 

The fine-dining restaurants showcases the woody tones and greens that define this historic Cape winelands town. 


This Strandveld eatery is situated in the beach town of Paternoster along the West Coast. The atmosphere is tranquil, the food is fresh and exquisitely presented in a space that speaks to the ocean, the veld and the people of the region. 


This stunning space truly is a small oasis in the heart of the Mother City. Entering this restaurant, you feel like you've been swallowed up by a decor magazine.

It offers an escapism from the hustle and bustle of the city and is the perfect spot for lunch and for indulging in freshly made, jewel-coloured juices.

Fyn Restaurant

The earthy tones and playful textures scattered throughout this space render it both hard and soft. Go for the view, both facing the mountains as well as the one you have of the dining area, which is filled with spectacular hanging decorative elements made from hundreds of wooden discs.


It's just such a classic. Dine in Constantia at this beautifully fresh and modern space with lots of natural light, overlooking the pristine Cellar - Hohenort gardens. 

Mulberry & Prince

Get a taste of the Big Apple right here within the heart of Cape Town. Through the pink doors you'll discover a space so pretty,  sophisticated and cool, it'll see you coming back for more that just the delectable American fare.
