5 nights in Capetown

matika Jul 13, 2014 04:34 PM


My husband and I will be in Capetown for 5 nights in early September. Plan to go to Roundhouse and Savoy Cabbage and looking for other suggestions. Test Kitchen is booked and do not want to taxi for 20 minutes. Would love to add on a seafood restaurant and an african/South African restaurant. Please tell me your favorites - any local places would be terrific.

    There are 2 recent threads on Cape Town that you might want to look at for ideas.
    For the seafood options, you will see Baia, Miller's Thumb, Panama Jacks (I tried it out again in December and don't think it worthwhile anymore) and (I think) Codfather recommended.
    For African/South African... I'll hold off on talking of the various styles and assume that you want the tourist experience, and would suggest Gold or Moyo. The latter has recently opened up in a few more spots but I haven't been to those. Menus of both are online.

      Thanks so much. We actually would prefer a non tourist place for African/South African food. Any suggestions would be terrific

        I started typing out a long reply, and then thought it better to first ask: What do you consider to be African/South African food? What are you hoping to have?
