Whether you’re serious about food or not, Cape Town is a place to eat, then drink a bit, and then...eat some more. You’ll be truly amazed at the quality, value and service of our restaurants. We’re not alone in saying that there are few places on the planet where you’ll eat this well for this little. So go wild!

Restaurants close to the Guesthouse - PDF DownloadWe at Parker Cottage Guesthouse have divided this guide into two: first, by AREA and secondly by STANDARD (see separate file). You will find the same restaurants listed in both sections, making it easy to choose depending on whether location or style are your particular priority.

We’ve divided this section of the guide up into four distinct areas.

Here they are:

WALKING DISTANCE (less than 10 minutes on foot)
These places are mainly in the Kloof Street and Gardens area. You can walk to them and back safely day and night.

WALKING DISTANCE / SHORT TAXI RIDE (between 10 – 15 minutes on foot, 5 minutes by taxi)
These places are mainly in the centre of old Cape Town or in the business district. You can walk to them but it would be better to take a taxi, especially on the way back if you leave late.

SHORT TAXI RIDE (between 5 - 10 minutes by taxi)
These places are in De Waterkant or the V&A Waterfront. They are too far for a comfortable walk. Take a cab, please.

DRIVE OUT OF TOWN (between 20 - 40 minutes by taxi)
These places are all in other suburbs or towns on the peninsula or in the area of Cape Town

We’ve divided this section of the guide up into four distinct types of food. Here they are:


HAUTE CUISINE (expect to pay between R600 and R800 per person for two courses including wine)
These places are aimed at a high end gourmet market. You will find service to be quite formal (but not always) and wine lists to be more extensive than most. Food can be very avant garde or traditional. You most likely won`t meet the owner or chef in person.

BISTROS AND RESTAURANTS (expect to pay between R400 and R600 per person for two courses including wine)
These places are normally owner managed but don`t let this make you think that the food is not top flight. Dishes are more traditional, the atmosphere far less formal and the food and wine will be great to excellent but not necessarily stylish and chic.

CAFES AND BARS (expect to pay between R200 and R500 per person for two courses including wine)
These places are normally open all day or sometimes just for lunch. Food can be very modern or very traditional and service very relaxed. Here you eat for the atmosphere and the fun of eating out. No posh frocks, please.
