Cape Dining

OK so you’re staying at Steenberg and you’ve gorged on the delicious offerings at Catharina’s Restaurant and Bistro Sixteen82 but you can’t come all the way to the Cape and not experience some of the other superb eateries in the area.

Luckily Steenberg provide guests with a free chauffer service within a 5km radius, so haul yourself out of your chair, make some space in your tummy and check out some of Constantia’s other hotspots like the stylish Buitenverwachting Restaurant or La Colombie which achieved an impressive 12th place in the San Pellegrino 50 Best Restaurants of the World Awards 2010. Having moved up 26 places and into the hallowed Top 20, this bastion of contemporary French-meets-Asian fine dining thereby also clinched the Acqua Panna Best Restaurant in Africa and Middle East Award. Winner of both Chef of the Year and Restaurant of the Year in the Prudential Eat Out Awards 2008, and again honoured with the prestigious Restaurant of the Year title in 2009, La Colombe has also achieved the highest three star rating in the 2009, 2010 and 2011 issue of the acclaimed Rossouw’s Restaurants guide.

Of course if you’re going to Cape Town one of the places you have to visit is the V&A Waterfront with its cosmopolitan, vibrant atmosphere, shops, craft markets and over 80 restaurants!

Our recommendations include Willoughby & Co, which offers the client a full Japanese kitchen ranging from the freshest sushi dishes to tempura dishes, oyster shooters to soups and salads. Famous for its freshness, quality, consistency and value for money.

Then there’s Belthazar the worlds biggest wine-by-the-glass bar and a veritable theatre of fine food and wine on the cutting-edge of “shoppertainment”. A multi-purpose restaurant, grill, wine bar and gourmet home accessory shop, Belthazar brings a chic new concept in the culinary arts to Cape Town.

And for a taste of Belgium in South Africa you have to check out Den Anker where menus revolve round fresh, seasonal dishes like just-caught crayfish or herring flown in from Europe. Specialities range from generous pots of mussels and frites to traditional South African fare; gourmet temptations from foie gras brulee to velvet-smooth chocolates from a top Belgian chocolatier. They also have a selection of beers imported from small Belgian breweries including Kwak beer. The draught beer is served in so special (and expensive) a glass that they demand one of your shoes as a deposit. It’s kept in a basket at the bar till you’ve returned the glass, so make sure you’ve got clean socks on.

Steenberg run a daily complimentary shuttle service to the V&A Waterfront for their guests, however if you really want to arrive in style a helicopter transfer from Steenberg can be arranged but if you’ve eaten too much it may not be able to take off!

    It had been a few years since my last visit to Northern Tanzania, an area on many people’s bucket list, and an area with names that evoke all sorts of emotions. My memories of my first visit to Tanzania, about 20 years ago, are still with me – particularly the cheetah sighting in the tall grass of the Serengeti, when the cubs got told off by their Mum, because she lost the Tommy she had just caught for their dinner, as they were otherwise occupied with some rough and tumble.
