    The Test Kitchen (Woodstock) and the Le Quartier Français Restaurant (Franschoek) are both amazing but have long waiting lists. El Burro in Green Point has good but not hot Mexican and a nice atmosphere. My friends will laugh, but Den Anker is also great - Belgian restaurant at the waterfront, not a very authentic Cape Town experience but on the Harbour with good food! Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront Cape Town is good for sunset cocktails with a view over the ocean and Robben Island and Lefties is a hipster stalwart - great ribs! Last but not least, if you are heading out to the winelands make a stop at Hillcrest Berries (Pty) Ltd and enjoy some of their homemade ice-cream with a view of the mountains. Lovely!

    You should still go to The Old Biscuit Mill on a Saturday morning. They have a fantastic neighborhood food market, all local produce all good!

    I studied abroad in Cape Town from July to December last year and had a fantastic experience!!

    I second El Burro and Lefty's. (At Lefty's, I've had the ribs, chicken and waffles, and one of their burgers. The chicken has great batter and you can never go wrong with the ribs.)

    The Old Biscuit Mill on a Saturday morning is a MUST.

    The Bombay Bicycle Club has a unique fun, festive, and theatrical atmosphere. Hudsons is a popular burger joint on Kloof St. with yummy drinks and tasty burgers.

    I have never been to Galbi Restaurant, a fusion Korean Barbecue restaurant on Long Street, but I hear that it is highly recommended. You can get barbecued Zebra and other game meat, which adds a twist. Friends also say the spinach side is a must!


    And I can't forget, Mzoli's Place is a famous braai (barbecue) spot in the Gugulethu township!! The weekends are very popular and many international visitors go on Sunday. Basically, you wait in line to pick out fresh meat (as if you were in a butcher shop), they hand it to you on a plate with sauce and spices, you drop the plate off at the back barbecue room, and then go out to the patio for music, drinking, dancing, and eating. No one calls your order, so you just have to check back every 20 minutes or so to see if it is done. On a crowded day (usually all weekends), it could take 45-60 minutes, but the fresh, hot, juicy, and delicious meat is so worth it!! You can also purchase other sides like pap (polenta), chakalaka (like a fresh salsa) and bread to go along. You eat everything with your hands, but there are sinks to wash them. You can bring your own beverages or purchase them from the stalls nearby. I have gone about 3 times with both large and small groups, on weekends and weekdays, and have felt very safe.

    **This is unrelated, but if you have time, go to LLandudno beach! It is small, secluded, serene, and arguably everyone's favorite. Great for surfing, too.

    we were there in March for 10 days and visited several restaurants but our favorite was Black Sheep Restaurant on Kloof St http://blacksheeprestaurant.co.za/ (you need to book ahead as it is very busy!). For lunch we loved Maison Wine Estate if your going wine tasting, great food, excellent service and fabulous views. The Test Kitchen gets great reviews but we found the food overly fussy. Hope you enjoy your stay, we had a great time and will definitely be returning!

    I lived in Cape Town for 8 years, we used to frequent Cafe Paradiso, really well priced and exceptional food. Summer is the best time to go but in winter it's really nice and cosy inside. Another place we used to frequent is The Woodlands Eatery, their gourmet Pizzas are amazing! The produce they use is always fresh and the toppings are inventive. Have a great time!
