Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Kitima
Socialites and 'it' kids can't resist being seen on the scene at Kitima, yet the atmosphere remains casual. A near-impossible mix that this Asian restaurant has nailed on the head.
Grand Cafe & Beach
Dress to impress for dinner at this New York-style warehouse-restaurant.
Headquarters
With doorstep steaks and industrial interiors, this is a meat-loving macho-man's dream scene.
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.
Paranga
Paranga is more about the scene than the food, but that's not to say it's not worth rocking up here for an evening's entertainment. Just be sure to slide on your superstar shades before stepping out of the car.
Anatoli
Fantastic mezze platters are on offer in this eclectic warehouse.
Bo-Kaap Kombuis
Location, location, location. Cape Town’s Bo-Kaap Kombuis provides a mountainside panoramic vista, traditional Malay menu and a wholesome family vibe.
Willoughby & Co.
By far the best sushi spot in town. Trust us; we've tried 'em all.
Royale Eatery
Let's face it; despite our insatiable appetites for the finer things in life sometimes all we want to get our chops around is a good burger. And when such cravings beckon, Royale Eatery provides.
Haiku
If you're culinary tastes lean more towards the Asian persuasion, then Haiku is the restaurant for you.
La Petite Ferme
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.
Sidewalk Cafe
Tucked away from the tourist trail, Sidewalk Café is a hidden gem.
The Roundhouse & Rumbullion
Save the best for last at The Roundhouse & Rumbullion, where desserts are decadent enough to make even the most die-hard dieter stray from their calorie-counting.
The Foodbarn
Stunning yet affordable food from a world-renowned chef, The Fodbarn is a must-eat.
Bukhara
Masala and mango chutney may not be top of your agenda while in Cape Town but Bukhara offers inspiring Indian cuisine within stylish surroundings. So much so celebrities can't get enough.
Nobu
The Test Kitchen
As much culinary laboratory as kitchen, The Test Kitchen is considered amongst the finest restaurants in South Africa.
