If you are taking part in the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour in Cape Town on Sunday, you will no doubt be in search of good restaurants for carbo-loading. Typical Italian fare – pizza and pasta – is generally the most popular choice with cyclists, and Cape Town caters fairly comprehensively in this regard.
The V&A Waterfront, the promenade in Camps Bay, Green Point, Long Street in the city centre, and the Southern Suburbs all host several restaurants and takeaways that fit the criteria and are all within a few kilometres of where the race starts and finishes.
If you like your meal to come with a good view, Tuscany Beach Restaurant in Camps Bay will be to your liking. Give them a call on +27 (0)21 438 1213 to check availability.
For atmosphere, Balducci’s at the V&A Waterfront may tickle your fancy. Their telephone number is +27 (0)21 421 6002.
For a more relaxed meal, venues in the city centre such as Clay Oven (166 Long Street) and Bacini’s (177 Kloof Street, +27 (0)21 423 6668) are ideal.
If you are staying in the Southern Suburbs, you will find excellent pizza and pasta dishes at Borruso’s at 92 Campground Road in Rondebosch. Phone them on +27 (0)21 689 1756 right away to book your table – they’re particularly popular.
