Cape Town boasts no fewer than five S. Pelligrino Top 100 Restaurants. However, the range and inspiration of Cape Town cuisine is diverse and exciting – a never-ending landscape for foodies to explore.

Inexpensive take-away meals of fish and chips can be enjoyed in the Kalk Bay and Hout Bay harbours whilst traditional Malay curries and other Eastern fare is available in many city lunch spots and at the highly affordable Eastern Food Bazaar.

On the go, Cape Town offers everything from McDonald’s to gourmet sandwiches, take-away sushi, pizza and shwarma.

The city’s many restaurants are run by chefs who hail from all over the world. Their experience, the quality produce and a stockpot of cultural influences produce a fusion of Mediterranean, Asian and French food.
