Hot new restaurants in Cape Town

Cape Town is a food lover’s dream – from street food to corner cafes, burger joints to tapas, traditional cooking to fine dining, the city’s growing food scene is packed with mouth-watering options that cater to every taste and vibe. Here’s a look at some new spots well worth a visit.

The Mojo Market

Adjacent to the Mojo Hotel on Sea Point’s Regent Road, this market offers an insane amount of foodie favourites, gifts, decor, crafts and even flowers. You’ll be spoilt for choice with a wide variety of food stalls serving up anything from oysters and champagne to poké bowls, falafels, fresh sushi, sweet treats and perfect macarons. Grab a drink at the central bar and drink while you shop or secure a seat and check out the game on the screens above the counter. They’re open from 9 am to 9 pm with some stalls even staying open 24/7, so you’ll have plenty of time to grab an ice cream or burger on your way out!

Seabreeze Fish and Shell

If you’re feeling like traditional seafood with a twist, then you should check out the brilliant blue SeaBreeze on Bree Street. Celebrating Cape Town’s rich seafood heritage and our love for wine, Seabreeze serves lunch (think squid ink linguine with Mozambican prawns or a tuna burger), dinner and Oyster Happy Hour daily between 5 pm and 6 pm.

The Granary Café at The Silo Hotel

With its incredible views of the city and the V&A Waterfront below, a glass pool and tasteful décor, The Silo Hotel is already one of our favourite places in Cape Town and an Instagram-hotspot. The opening of the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, the largest contemporary art museum in Africa, in the same building in September is what 2017 is going to be remembered for in Cape Town.

Located on the 6th floor, the Granary Café serves up breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Sunday roast with a view is also highly recommended and you’ll be spoilt for choice with roast pork, beef and chicken.
