South Africa Restaurants

  • The Africa Cafe

    Cape Town Restaurants

    In the Africa cafe the food is very fine however a bit expensive. The waiter brings various dishes to the table what you really enjoy. The dishes are from all over Africa with very fine flavours. You will not leave hungry!!!!!!!!!!! The waitresses are dressed in traditional African clothes. The restaurant has many rooms and all have a different...

  • Mama Afrika

    Cape Town Restaurants

    Where to start? The restaurant looks African, you can buy African art there and there's live African music playing during dinner (but you get billed for it - shame). The food is amazing and we got some free drinks because we had to wait, so that lifted our spirits! I had the mixed grill, which is expensive, but you get meat from crocodile, kudu,...

  • The Hildebrand

    Cape Town Restaurants

    Our determination to escape the huge crowds of tourists at the V&A Waterfront led us to stumble upon Hildebrand. It is in a less crowded part of the waterfront and sits among other restaurants, but seemed to offer the most pleasant terrace and best menu. Despite its local name, it is actually an Italian restaurant with a wide menu of well prepared...

  • Den Anker

    Cape Town Restaurants

    At the waterfront there are many, many choices to have your dining experience. I had read mostly good reviews about this restaurant and thought we should try it. I ordered a shrimp curry dish, I think it was a special, not on the menu. My boyfriend ordered the seared Ahi tuna which was quite tasty. Any, my daughter ordered a shrimp pasta dish which...

  • Panama Jack's

    Cape Town Restaurants

    The restaurant is just a ramshackle, unpromising looking wharf side shack in Cape Town's commercial harbour. The décor is very basic but the food is excellent. You can choose your own live lobster or abalone from the sea water tanks. They also keep mussels and Namibian oysters alive in the tanks so that you are assured of fresh seafood. The...

  • Quay Four

    Cape Town Restaurants

    It has grown and went to big to give good service and food. Under the tidea : great location, lots of people, so everybody wants to be here. Under that motto you'll see that the service and food isn't equal to a small restaurant of those price-classes. Anyway the food was good, but there are better places, just look for them.

  • THE MOUNT NELSON

    Cape Town Restaurants

    Afternoon Tea isnt really a meal, its an indulgence, a delight, naughty but oh so nice. Afernoon Tea at the Mount Nelson surpasses naughty and borders on wicked, the Windsor table in the Tea Lounge practically groans with the weight of the delicious treats loaded onto it every day between 2.30 and 5.30 and you indulge in style to the...

  • For good Thai food

    Simply Asia food outlets throughout South Africa offer excellent quality Thai food. We loved their Pad Thai noodles and green curry with steamed rice and also their red curry. They have quick service, food is fresh and has no MSG added to their food.

    South African Farmers’ Sausage Boerewors recipes can be numbered in their hundreds as each proud cook tries to produce a better, tastier sausage.In times past each farmer's wife had her own closely guarded Boerewors recipe.These Secret Boerewors Recipes may have differed only in the amount of garlic or nutmeg used, or may have introduced other...

  • Reliable meat restaurant

    I have been quite a few times, it is a favoured steakhouse chain in South Africa.They are a slightly upmarket chain, where the food is good quality and service just fine. It is a tad expensive here, but you will have a good meal. Guaranteed. One particular occasion stands out...It was my sister’s birthday and she had invited 18 people along to...

  • Funky, easygoing vibe -

    Tings is a reggae bar with an amazing menu. printed on newspaper. It is great value for money and an awesome chilled out vibe. Vegetarians must try out the potato dish. I have forgotten the name but it is easy to find on the menu. I think it is cheaper to buy there then to prepare at home. So tasty. For no vegetarians, the beef brandy pita is...

  • Steaks at a good price!

    The service was good, although I think our waitress was new because she looked confused when we were asking her what we wanted. We got our food and enjoyed it very much. It was a clean restaurant and I enjoyed my first South African dining experience. The place is very American Old West themed. The interiors were brown with tile and hence the title...

  • How to assemble a delicious instant...

    Many of my tips make reference to picnics - partly because I like picnicking, partly out of economy, and partly because one of the few things I have learned from motherhood is that it is wise never to venture forth with small children without emergency provisions!So, how do you assemble an instant, delicious, value-for-money picnic? Easy - you find...

    Of course if you are on a safari road and campings a self cooking and grilling is essential part of your diet. No problems to get in the camp site fresh food and meat from the store and then just be sure to have with you a cooker or wood for the grill and you are on for the fest :)

  • Best restaurant

    Restaurants and food in South Africa are of a high quality in wine, food and services. One of the best one we've been to is this Olive & Oil in Durban. The dinner meal was delicious and we had fantastic red wine as well. On this occasion it was exceptional for me but I even ordered dessert this time which was excellent as well.And, of course, the...

    If you book a stay in a private reserve lodge the dinner is included, as in such places there are no restaurants or cooking facilities. You will be invited to dinner with the other guests which is usually included some local dishes which might be a bit strange at first but this is part of the adventures.

  • Be sure to try the Bok & Kudu

    We loved this restaurant. The food and the ambience was authentically African, the Bok and Kudu on the menu were a must alongside a stunning variety of locally produced vegetables excellently served. Visited there on a Thursday night ( without a reservation.. unwise ), had to sit and eat at the bar which did not detract in any way from our...

    In my opinion, no other city in South Africa can match Cape Town and surroundings when it comes to quality restaurants. I wrote tips on a few which I visited recently, and list a few here which I visited not that recently.Blues: A contemporary restaurant in Camps Bay with great views of the sunset over the Atlantic. Very good seafood. The...

  • Steak

    It is relatively cheap to go out for dinner in South Africa. Steaks are very popular, available in huge portions and very affordable. If you get the chance, defenitely try ostrich, kudu, crocodile, springbok and any other game meat. It's really tasty, I loved it!

  • BRAAI !!!!

    A Braai is social happening and culinary experience you will find here in South Africa. The word Braai (rhymes with ‘cry’) is Afrikaans for ‘barbecue’ or ‘roast’. To me it translates as simply delicious. You also get to burn stuff to make your meal. Most grocery stores have all your Braai supplies. That includes firewood. It gives you a chance to...

All of the seafood is fresh and delicious.We ate outside where possible which made is even more pleasurable. The food is not expensive. Enjoy! My favourite dish, although I...

  • Oh MY!

    One of the best restaurants I've been to anywhere in the world! The atmosphere is quite pleasant, but it's the food that makes this place great. It's on the road up to Table Mountain. You may have to park a little ways away, but it's well worth the walk. In the warm months, sit outside, enjoying the scenery and street, but be sure to take a look...

    This is probably our most regular restaurant. A firm favourite!!!!It is a South African chain of restaurants, we used to go in South Africa now and again, but since living in London, have gone alot more.Their website is worth a look, as they have some 'spicy marketing'...They also have an online shop, as their spices are truly world class and...

  • Family orientated Spur

    In South Africa we were practically brought up with this restaurant chain, with it's red indian theme. As adults we dont go here nearly as much as it is child orientated, where kiddies join the 'Spur Secret Tribe!' It's great for birthday parties and the like. As adults though, the food is yummy, portions sizeable, and we always have a good time...

It is an Italian restaurant, that is usually a lot of fun to go to, as they have TV coverage of sports, especially soccer!We usually went to the Randburg Waterfront branch, but this no longer exists.Their service is okay, but nothing special. The waitrons are usually students working for some extra money, so it’s...

    Yet another family favourite... You know what you will be getting and it’s not pricey.It is brightly coloured, fresh and funky.Service is merely okay, nothing fantastic in our general experience. But as we usually pop by here for a dessert, not a meal, it is not worth complaining about. If you are feeling like a waffle, then this is the place to...

  • Trustworthy Wimpy!

    The Wimpy is synonomous with growing up as kids in South Africa.. the drive-thru, the roadhouse, the rest stop on the way to our holiday destination! Family-orientated and reliable.I have vivid memories of driving down to Durban from Johannesburg as a child, excitedly waiting to catch that first smell and then glimpse of the ocean! This conjures up...
