Cape Town is very well...

Cape Town is very well supplied with restaurants. On my first trip, two of our favorites were Kaapse Tafel and Mama Africa. Kaapse Tafel is a small, intimate place serving Cape cuisine--we had some great fish there. The 'pan-African' food at Mama Africa is OK, but the real draw is the live bands. Another excellent restaurant experience I had in Cape Town on another trip was at Constantia Uitsig, which is in a small winery on the Cape about a half-hour from downtown. Go for lunch--the outdoor terrace is amazingly pleasant.

There are a lot of great foodie destinations in Cape Town. These change pretty rapidly, so do some research before you go! One of the top-rated spots now is One.Waterfront (very expensive!)

On my first trip to the city, we ate at a very glamourous place in Camps Bay called Blues, which had good food, a lot of cell phones, and not very attentive service. This is one common feature of quite a few places in Cape Town--a lot of flash, not so much satisfaction.

Favorite Dish: Not surprisingly, seafood is a central part of the menu in Cape Town. The fish in SA tends to be fantastic, so be sure to take advantage of it!

Wine country restaurants: I've had some of my top meals ever at the restaurants in the Western Cape wine region. My all-time favorite so far is <a href=''>Haute Cabriere</a> in Franschhoek. Last time I was in Cape Town, I had lunch at Tokara (Stellenbosch), pictured here. What a fabulous view!
