Pam’s List of the Best Restaurants in Cape Town

Pam’s List of the Best Restaurants in Cape Town

This is a list of the restaurants that I consider to be the best restaurants in Cape Town.  Many of those listed are fine dining establishments,  others are included simply because they are what I consider to be culinary delights.

Note in order to keep this list shorter I have created a separate section for quirky, fun & local spots that I love!

Pam’s Top 10 Restaurants in Cape Town


City Bowl area

La Colombe


Chefs Warehouse

Owned by Chef Liam Tomlin – City/Constantia/Chapmans Peak Drive/Franschhoek and Thali – just above the City.  The top one in my opinion is on Beau Constantia Estate 

The Test Kitchen &  The Pot Luck Club

 Woodstock.  Owned by top Chef Luke Dale Roberts and they are both really good.  

The Foodbarn 

Noordhoek/Peninsula Region.  Note currently only serving their tapas and bakery menu  – NOT THE FINE DINING MENU

Salt River/Woodstock

Upper Bloem

Greenpoint – close to the city
