A Taste of the Arts: 7 of the Best Dinner and Show Combos in Cape Town

Last updated August 2023

We all get a bit busy sometimes so we can’t always go out to dinner and then see a show afterwards or vice-versa. So, it’s really handy when you find a venue where you can do both at the same time!

Here we’ve rounded up some of the best dinner-and-a-show venues in Cape Town.


A local favourite and Cape Town’s near iconic theatre and dinner spot, StarDust, always offers up a great show. While you dine, you will be serenaded by your waitrons who put on amazing performances to keep you entertained.


The Barnyard

Shows at the Barnyard are always entertaining. The shows are usually about the hits of a certain time as well as shows by popular South African bands and performances. Theatre goers get assigned a table and can bring along their own food or order from the establishment. It’s great fun.



An upmarket jazz evening is what you get when you visit Pigalles. The live music acts will keep you entertained while you dine on something tasty and it will get your feet moving to the dance floor when the mood takes.


The Rockwell Dinner Theatre

Based at the Rockwell Hotel in Greenpoint, The Rockwell Dinner Theatre is relatively new to the theatre scene in Cape Town, but already being causing a stir with its entertaining productions. It’s an interactive theatre and dining experience. There are various shows that run, but the in-house production is called Shiza iKapa and is not to be missed!


Villa Pascal Theatre

Situated at the Villa Pascal Guest House, Villa Pascal Theatre puts on a variety of events my local and international performers. Enjoy your dinner and a show in this theatre-in-a-house intimate setting.


The Crypt

Sitting underneath the stunning St George’s Cathedral, the Crypt restaurant is a great place to visit if you’re looking for some good jazz music. Book early to secure a table with a decent view of the stage and go and enjoy dinner and a show in this intimate setting.

The Piano Bar

This trendy little place offers up live jazz with a strong African flavour every day of the week. Go from Monday to Thursday from 12h00 to midnight or on Fridays and Saturday until 02h00. On Sundays, the entertainment starts at 16h30 and ends at 23h00. A great place for live jazz and tasty food and cocktails.
