This headline is something of a misnomer, because we’re not just giving you a list of new dining spots that are definitely worth a visit, but also some top tips about places to get your drink on. And with the winter chill about to set in, these venues offer the perfect combination of cosy comfort and luxe indulgence.

For dinner with a difference

A cool breeze? Check. Perfect oceanside views? Check. The ultimate seafood spread, full-bodied wine and time away from home? Check, check and check. Capetonians love Tobago’s Restaurant Bar & Terrace at Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront for its endless views of the Atlantic Ocean, laid-back vibe and delicious food. Whether you’re dying for fancy prawns, grilled line fish, soft-shell crab curry, creamy mussels, spicy calamari strips or crisp whitebait, Tobago’s seafood platters have you covered. Each platter is served with a choice of rice, rustic chips or a side salad, and a glass of house wine – mahala! R400 per single platter, R850 for a sharing platter. Valid until 30 June 2021, bookings essential.

For a “wine”-down

Summer days may have faded away, but at Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence Cape Town’s Ghibli Bar, the vibes never end! The perfect spot to unwind after a long day – rain or shine – enjoy a well-crafted cold one with friends or colleagues during the hotel’s Daily Wined Down Time.

For 2-for-1

Did we say 2-for-1? We actually meant 3-for-1! You read correctly. Grab your two closest mates and head to Harald’s Bar & Grill on the 11th floor of Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Foreshore for their Chips, Chips! And more Chips Special. Choose from four tantalising flavours, buy two portions and get the third full-sized portion on the house – yum! And if you love a good steak, RBG Bar & Grill has five different cuts of beef served tapas-style from only R100 per person – it’s a deal you can’t afford to miss!

For the budget busters

We know times are tough, but there’s still plenty of good food to be enjoyed. Which is why Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Newlands has got you covered – whether you’re pinching your pennies or holding out until payday. On Tuesdays, order a beer with any burger priced at R90, and you’ll get the second one at half price. Think that’s a good deal then head over on Thursdays, where you’ll get 50% sliced off your second order of any home-made pizza.
