Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Grand Cafe & Beach
Dress to impress for dinner at this New York-style warehouse-restaurant.
Aubergine
Dine beneath the stars here at Aubergine, headed up by Harald Bresselschmidt - arguably the best chef in Cape Town.
Rust en Vrede
If you an get over its air of pretentiousness and the snooty lady on the end of the reservations line, Rust en Vrede is a must. We hate to say it, but with food this fabulous its arrogance is well-placed.
The Big Easy
The wine list is the best bit at The Big Easy, but that's not to say the food's not worth tucking into. And as we know all too well, man cannot live on wine alone.
Signal
If crocodile nicoise doesn't tempt you, a salad at Signal could be right up your street.
Delaire Graff
With a location so beautiful it could make grown men weep, it's no surprise that the food wine and service at Delaire Graff Estate is pretty damn good, too.
La Petite Ferme
Planet
Following a four-month facelift, Orient-Express' iconic Cape Town hotel, The Mount Nelson, has unveiled its glamorously restyled and renamed restaurant: Planet.
Savoy Cabbage
What's in a name? Apparently not a lot, if Savoy Cabbage is anything to go by. Far from serving up dull veg, this arty-farty space serves up hearty comfort food that would satisfy even the biggest belly.
Terroir
While its location may not scream luxury, the food at Terroir is anything but terrifying. In fact, it's well worth coming out of your comfort zone for.
Pure
Pure does exactly what it says on the tin and offers a pure dining experience in theatrical surroundings.
