"Cape Town advice?"
Charleston, South Carolina
I'm planning a 10-day trip to Cape Town in July with a friend. I'd best describe my budget as medium-high on accommodations, but I have no reservations about eating cheap food or using cheap local transport. I'm aware it's winter and off-season, but I reckon it'll be a relief from Charleston SC's oppressive heat and humidity. Any advice on hotels, restaurants, attractions, side trips and dos-and-don'ts would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Janelle. Cape Town is awesome!
I stayed in budget/flashpacker accommodation so probably not what you're looking for but I stayed in a double room with my girlfriend in Ashanti Lodge which was good. Awesome, safe location and walking distance to most things, especially good food. Also the bar has a balcony looking directly up at Table Mountain! It is a hostel though so might not be right.
Right next door to the hostel is the best steak in the city according to a lot of locals. Nelsons Eye is very unassuming from the outside and the service is not what you'd get in a fine dining restaurant but the food is incredible. If you can only go to one place I'd go there. However other places I really enjoyed were Saigon Vietnamese Restaurant and Lola's and Royale Eateryon Long Street for cakes and burgers respectively. Enjoy!
