Heading down to South Africa soon? If you are, your itinerary will likely have you visiting Cape Town at some point, as it is one of this nation’s most vibrant urban centres. While you are here, don’t forget to check out the best of fine dining in Cape Town, as the innovative chefs and cooks here have talent that will surprise and amaze you.
1) Signal Restaurant Waterfront
Those seeking an elegant place to dine in the midst of Cape Town’s thriving downtown area will want to dine at the Signal Restaurant Waterfront. With terrific food from the appetizers to the desserts, it is a fortunate thing that the owners have put together an inspired tasting menu, as you might have a hard time picking out something to eat at this place.
With excellent views of Table Mountain and the harbour, do try to get seats with a view, as it will serve as the perfect accent to one of the best meals you’ll eat in Cape Town during your visit here.
If you often find yourself second guessing about whether you have made the right decision in picking a place to eat, then go ahead and take the plunge by reserving a table at Baia. Specializing in both surf and turf, the skillful creations focusing on the best from the sea and from land based creatures in South Africa will blow your taste buds away, wiping out any doubt about other restaurants you were considering picking that night. If your tastes trend toward seafood, be sure to try the lobster!
3) Bistro 1800
If you’d rather tuck into a juicy steak rather pick apart a shellfish, then Bistro 1800 will stand to be a better choice for you and your fellow lovers of the flesh. With South Africa being one of the most enthusiastic nations in the world when it comes to being a carnivore, not only will the choices available leave you feeling like a kid in a candy shop, but the value you will receive per dollar spent will thrill your thrifty soul.
Feel like having some some Pan Asian cuisine after a long holiday eating the local food (no offense obviously, but variety is also nice to have every once in a while)? If so, your best option in Cape Town is Haiku, which serves up standards from Japanese, Chinese, and various other cuisines from the Far East. The Dim Sum is great to have if you are looking to have an Asian brunch during your time in Africa’s most cosmopolitan city.
