Grand Café & Beach

Party with the lean of limb and high of cheekbone at this summertime beach restaurant and bar in Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront. Grand Caf. & Beach is the best place in the city to watch the sunset…and the beautiful people.

Manna Epicure

Expect only the freshest ingredients at this organic breakfast and lunch spot in the heart of the Gardens where the menu includes six varieties of home-baked bread. 

Kyoto Gardens Sushi

Owned by spirited ex-Porsche salesman Scott Lee Wood from Los Angeles, Kyoto Gardens serves the best sushi in Cape Town. A cool beech wood interior, great service, and a first-class wine list help seal the deal.

Set on the sixth floor of Woodstock’s Old Biscuit Mill, the views of Table Mountain alone make the trip to this high-end brasserie worthwhile. Be sure to book early, though: tables are hard to come by in peak season.
