Are you looking for the perfect place to dine with your family, friends or that special someone?

South African cuisine is called “rainbow cuisine” because of its various origins. We can distinguish between two kinds of cuisine: indigenous cooking from Africa and cooking which emerged from colonisation and immigration.

There are numerous dining experiences available in Cape Town, offering the best cuisine from all over the world. Cape Town has a great “eating out culture”.

We have listed all kinds of restaurants for you to try: Italian, French, Asian, Moroccan, Congolese – the choice is yours. There are also several home-grown chain restaurants like Spur and Dulce Cafe. Fast food places are numerous. They can be international – Kentucky Fried Chicken, MacDonalds – as well as local, such as Nandos, Steers and Chicken Licken.

Wine is equally important in South African culture. The production takes place around Cape Town with vineyard and production centres in Worcester, Paarl and Stellenbosch. Sixty labels are available in the Wine of System (WO) and you should definitely try one during dinner.
