Best Food What to Eat

  • Craving great sushi and seafood? Spend your day perusing the market at Camps Bay, but be sure to make a stop at the notorious The Codfather Restaurant to enjoy their melt in your mouth butterfish. Foodies looking to soak in the beach vibe should head straight to The Bungalow, located near Camp’s Bay  where the surf meets some of the best fish and chips you’ve ever had. If you’re looking for a more local experience grab lunch at La Parada Camps Bay where you’ll find attractive clientele and an impressive tapas selection.  

Best Happy Hour What to Do

  • Get to know Cape Town’s historic side with a trip to the classic Cape Dutch winery. Located in the center of Somerset West, about 45 minutes east from Cape Town, visitors can choose to tour the Hamilton Russell Vineyards or whale watch in the quiet village of Hermanus.

    Cape Town has a number of local hang out spots where visitors can spend the afternoon dining and shopping. The V&A waterfront may have its touristy feel, but it’s the perfect place to take in local crafts and a quick trip to Robben island.  If you’re seeking out the chic hipster crowd, then be sure to stop by The Deck House Crab Shack or Bombay Bicycle Club.
