Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Fyndraai
Traditional South African dishes are the order of the day here; get a taste of real 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.
Headquarters
With doorstep steaks and industrial interiors, this is a meat-loving macho-man's dream scene.
Carne SA
Those who like their meat practically trotting across the plate will love the slabs of bloody stuff served up at Came SA.
Den Anker
With a reputation that precedes it, Den Anker doesn't need to try hard to fill its tables - but it still does, thankfully.
Harbour House
With seafood so fresh you can still smell the saltwater, foodies won't be disappointed by Harbour House.
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.
The Bungalow
Striking views of Cape Town’s coast with indulgent Mediterranean cuisine and speciality cocktails.
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.
Overture
An unusual but carefully thought-out menu makes Overture one of our favourite places to eat in the city. We can't get enough.
Fork
Spooning leads to forking, as they say, and that's certainly the case at the appropriately-named Fork restaurant; no knives needed just prongs and an appetite for bite-sized morsels.
Jordan Restaurant
Country bumpkins and city slickers alike will appreciate the hearty rustic fare served here.
La Boheme/La Bruixa
With a sense of community and lashings of Spanish style, it's no wonder La Bruixa is popular with the locals.
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
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 Foodbarn
Stunning yet affordable food from a world-renowned chef, The Fodbarn is a must-eat.
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.
Sloppy Sam
A casual eatery with cuisine that draws on inspiration from a number of influences; the charismatic host adds to its panache.
