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.
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.
Kalky’s
You'd expect a seaside city such as Cape Town to offer good portions of fish and chips, and it does at Kalky's.
La Colombe
This acclaimed restaurant is a must-visit for any foodie, with the menu brimming with must-eat marvels.
95 Keerom
Subtle local influences can be found on the refined Italian menu at 95 Keerom.
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.
Anatoli
Fantastic mezze platters are on offer in this eclectic warehouse.
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.
The Bungalow
Striking views of Cape Town’s coast with indulgent Mediterranean cuisine and speciality cocktails.
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.
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.
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.
Azure
South African fare is the order of the day here at Azure, all served against jaw-dropping views.
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.
Baia
Camera-wielding tourists may flock here in their droves but spectacular seafood makes the crowds - and the occasional wait - more than worth it.
The Test Kitchen
As much culinary laboratory as kitchen, The Test Kitchen is considered amongst the finest restaurants in South Africa.
Pure
Pure does exactly what it says on the tin and offers a pure dining experience in theatrical surroundings.
