La Colombe – Culinary heaven in South Africa

Cape Town, Constantia – What a wonderful place! we enjoyed a very special dining experience with our friends in the Colombe. Already the surroundings and the interior of the restaurant are beautiful. The food is really phenomenal and also its presentation one of a kind – see more in the pictures. I can highly recommend a visit, just please book very early ahead.

Clos Malverne – A light lunch? Not really…

Stellenbosch – We thought about a light lunch in the vineyards of Stellenbosch and made a reservation in the Clos Malverne. Soon we found out that this menu would be minimum a 4 course style and wine pairing one….we enjoyed not only the food and wine but also the spectacular view.


Rust en Vrede – Heaven for the taste buds

Stellenbosch – If you ever visit Stellenbosch you should definitively pass by Rust en Vrede restaurant. It was a beautiful evening in a lovely picturesque setting, delicious food and wine – a highlight of our South Africa visit. I recommend to drink “Peter Barlow” whenever you see it on the wine list.

Reservation about 2 months in advance is a must!

Webersburg – 5* Guest house

Stellenbosch – We booked the honeymoon suite and did not regret the small extra cost. We had a huge room in a Cape Dutch heritage style room. The estate is stunning with a little lake and home to countless ducks, hens and cows. I can imagine, many weddings fit in perfectly in this venue! The breakfast was also very good but actually we struggled a little as we were still full from past night’s dinner at nearby Rust en Vrede .




The Pot Luck Club!

Cape Town – a MUST and my personal favourite in Cape Town! But book in advance. The food is presented on the menu under the different tastes as Sweet, Bitter, Umami, etc. and portions in a Tapas-style-size. Everything was perfect and staff was not only very friendly but also very good-looking….maybe a job requirement?

PLC is a sister restaurant of the Test Kitchen, the best voted restaurant in Cape Town at the moment.
