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.
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!

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 .
Stellenbosch – A beautiful small boutique hotel, spa and great restaurant to start your South Africa trip nice and relaxed…a short visit from a little cat included.
Kalk Bay – Wonderful breakfast with a sea view. All food and juices are homemade and the staff very friendly.
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.
Cape Town – While visiting Cape Town one should visit Truth coffee. The poached egg on surdough with tomatoes and/or avo has only got a hint of sauce instead of drowning in it – fantastic!
Kalk Bay – Today we enjoyed a great and delicious fish and seafood lunch right next to the sea in Kalk Bay, 45mnts drive from Cape Town.
The waves were so big the water splashed on the windows. From the terrace you can watch the sealions playing with each other.
Really worth the way. There is another HH in Cape Town but I guess not at all that spectacular in terms of the view.
