3 days, 4 nights capetown,What have we left off we need to do?

by hrlandry

we are spending 3 full days in cape town and 4 nights. What to do? Here is what we have at this point:
-Tuesday afternoon we are touring Robben island and a helicopter ride.
-Wednesday: morning half-day wine tour
Would love suggestions on restaurants and shopping, and then what to do on Thursday. Thinking of renting a car on Thursday, but not sure where to go. Do we have time to to table top Tuesday morning or wednesday afternoon?

We are a young thirties couple who loves chic spots with great food and wine. Also maybe recommend some cool bars. I have seen suggestions for a place to watch the sunset at a bar and would love to do that, but can't recall what it is.

Also, we are staying at the 12 apostles.

Ok- Im also in my 30's and love chic spots:

12apostles is a great hotel- they have a stunning spa- so treat yourself to something there if time permits. The Waterfront has good shopping Walk shopping centre (on the way back from the wine farm- very big though). You need about 3 hrs to do table mountain - it must be on a lovely day.

Your hotel is a few minutes from Camps bay beachfront- very cool spots there- cafe Caprice (cocktails or meals) The sand bar -lunch. Further along the coast towards the Waterfront - WAKAME - Hip happening- ESPECIALLY the roof top bar for sundowners- accross the rd, Pepenero restaurant. And my all time favourite- 70's style yet ever so popular with the local chicsters- la perla on the beach front in Sea point. another great sunset bar is - at the Radisson hotel (right by the Wterfront- esp on a friday) good luck u gonna love it

Blues in Camp's Bay is an excellent restaurant. Nice sunset view if you sit outside. the 12 apostles has great sunset views.

We stayed at the 12 Apostles last November on our honeymoon. We absolutely loved it. The restaurant at the hotel was fantastic. We ended up eating there twice. We had a room overlooking the water so we liked to order wine and an appetizer or dessert and eat it while watching the sunset. Where are you going for your wine tour? To Stellenbosch or Franschhoek or to Constantia? One of the best restaurants in the area is in Constantia. As for other restaurants, we did go to Blues in Camps Bay but while the food was good the service was so so and we did not have a table next to the windows. Our best meal in Cape Town was Emily's at the VA Waterfront. We liked the shopping at the Waterfront and were able to find and ship home a lot of South African souvenirs. We also liked 35 Keeroom. Definately try to do Table Mountain and maybe go to see the penguins instead of the helicopter ride.

Dang, I thought we had hidden Emily's well enough to keep for us locals :-)

For places to eat I'd recoment Theo's steakhouse, there's 1 in Camps Bay and another in Moullie point. If you fancy some decent Thai food, Yindees on Kloof St is the best in Cape Town. For Pizza, Postichino's on Sea Poin main road is among the best pizza's I have ever had.
Caprice is a trendy bar on the camps bay strip, if you are in CT on a Sunday Afternoon get yourself down to La Med for some alfresco drinks overlooking the ocean. Balducci's at the waterfront is also quite a nice place to eat as is the Cape Town fishmarket.
Quay 4 at the waterfront has a cover band at weekends and is normally a good evening out for drinks & pub grub, there is a nice sea food restaraunt upstairs whose name escapes me.

Travel Tips for Cape Town

350 years young and vibrant

by kenHuocj

Since Jan Van Riebeeck landed in Table Bay in April 1652, with the Khosian and other newcomers as echoed by the current Mayor Morkel, it is no wonder Newsweek earlier this year rated Cape Town as one of the world's top 5 Cultural Mecca.

" So this year we commemorate, with a new sense of inclusive patriotism and civic pride, the contribution made to this city over the centuries by all who have come to these shares to settle in the welcoming embrace of Table Mountain. British, Maylay, French, Xhosa, Portuguese and Khoisan, among others - all have left their mark on the cultural, social and political landscape of Cape Town.
These communities have worked together to develop a backward and humble victualling station into a modern metropolis which is increasingly making its mark as a globally-competitive city. " It's is cosmopolitan, its, multiculturally interesting without being overbearing;

Its' food and wines excite and tittilate the palate;

World cup fever is here

by glennkasner

The FIFA 2010 Soccer World cup hits our shores this week. Come and enjoy the party!

There is still lots of affordable accommodation available - shop around and haggle! Many of the hotels will be just too please to have you. Foreign vivtor numbers have been disappointing due to the world wide economic situation and although match tickets have been snapped up by locals, hotels that were expecting an influx of foreigners are largely empty.

Capetown by the sea

by skatzcatz about Shopping Malls

When in Capetown, do as the locals do and shop. And the best place to shop is the arcades and shopping malls by the sea. Plenty of specials, eateries, souvenirs, actually everything was found by the sea. And the view is awesome too.

Water taxi between Simonstown and Kalk Bay

by CatherineReichardt

The Mellow Yellow water taxi must simply be the coolest way to get between Kalk Bay and Simonstown (or vice versa) and you've just got to love a service provider who warns you of possible slight delays due to whales!
In pursuit of my personal mantra to never travel the same way twice if at all possible, I would suggest that you get the water taxi one way and then catch the train back (see another of my travel tips) - given that you have a designated driver on the return trip, you can then treat yourself to an extra glass (or two) with lunch!
The website gives the following details and prices (valid April 2010):
Operating every lovely day between Kalk Bay and Simon's Town
Maximum 10 persons per trip
Pick-up /Drop-off Points
From the Public Jetty at the Simon's Town Waterfront - every hour on the hour (9.00am, 10.00am etc).
..and in front of Kalkys Fish and Chips in the Kalk Bay Harbour - every half past the hour (9.30am etc)
Single Return: R150-00
Single One Way: R100-00
Children: R50-00 per single voyage

Fight seagulls for your fish and chips!

by CatherineReichardt about Fish on the Rocks, Hout Bay

Eating fish and chips at Hout Bay harbour is the sort of experience of which the best holiday memories are made! Kids love the novelty of being allowed to eat with their hands (you have to be either extremely well mannered or utterly misguided to eat fish and chips with a knife and fork!)
and it's wonderful to know that it doesn't matter how much mess they make, as the resident cats and the seagulls will clean it up anyway!
There is open air seating on picnic benches (some under tarpaulin covers), but as this is a popular destination, so be prepared for a bit of a wait in peak season.
You are not the only one who likes fish and chips, to be viligent, otherwise you could be dive bombed by the local seagull population! This is not haute cuisine, but it is scrumptious! The fish is covered with batter and deep fried, and served with a pile of chips. All the local fish is good - the best value for money is probably hake or calamari (squid), which are both good options as they are from sustainable sources - although I think you'd probably be fairly naive to believe that it came out of the ocean that morning.
