Restaurant Review: Ginja Restaurant, V&A Waterfront

A few weekends ago I gave my husband a “pink ticket” to head out to the winelands to enjoy a day (and night) of wine tasting drinking with one of his best mates. This friend has been going through some ups and downs recently and I felt it was important for them to get some “guy […]

Weekend Wanderings: Asara Wine Estate, Stellenbosch

A glorious summer’s day on a wine farm outside Stellenbosch, wine tasting in a cellar, gin tasting in the biggest gin bar in Africa, lunching by a lake on a Salmon platter of perfection all the while surrounded by vineyards and mountains of blue… Our visit to Asara was a very pleasant way to spend […]

Restaurant Review: Dalliance Restaurant, V&A Waterfront

Date nights don’t feature as often as they should in our house. Scheduling in Date Nights when you have kids (who also have a social life) is pretty tricky. OK it’s slightly easier than the baby stage when you physically have to be there to feed your child. But it doesn’t seem to get easier. […]

Restaurant Review: La Parada Del Mar, Camps Bay

Last week I popped in to enjoy lunch at the newest La Parada restaurant in Camps Bay. It was a glorious day made better by the fact that I had a few minutes to spare soaking up the sunshine while strolling alongside the beach and snapping a few photos like a tourist! And then I strolled across […]

Restaurant Review: Lunch at La Petite Ferme

Sunday lunches used to be a thing. I’m not sure when the stopped being a thing? But in recent years it seems they have fallen by the wayside. A pity really, considering how lovely it is to enjoy a long, leisurely meal with your loved ones every week. Daily life is often too hurried for […]

Weekend Wanderings: Rhebokskloof Wine Estate, Paarl

Back when the weather was chilly and the trees were bare we paid a visit to Rhebokskloof Wine Estate near Paarl for a lunch during our day out in the area. I somehow missed posting about this spot… and unfortunately I’ve now forgotten what I ate too so it can no longer be called a Restaurant […]

Restaurant Review: FABER at Avondale Wine Estate, Paarl

As far as winelands go, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch seem to claim all the glory in this part of the world… but they aren’t the only wine routes worth venturing out to explore… Paarl has some pretty impressive offerings too! Recently I paid a visit to Avondale Wine Estate to enjoy lunch in their new restaurant, FABER. […]

Restaurant Review: The Mess, Green Point

I love discovering new restaurants and tasting delicious foods… An invite to a menu tasting at The Mess was not going to go unanswered! Located at the foot of The Rockwell Hotel in Green Point, The Mess is a recently opened restaurant and bar perfectly placed for after work drinks or pre-theatre meals. Quirkily named The […]

Weekend Wanderings: Discover Durbanville

When last did you discover Durbanville? For a Southern Suburbs girl like me the answer is probably NEVER. Which it was, until a few months ago when I was invited to discover the delights of Durbanville for myself… You see it’s probably because Durbanville is one of Cape Town’s Northern Suburbs that we don’t venture […]

Is there any better way to spend a summer’s day than with a picnic in a pretty place? Nope, there isn’t!! Now make that pretty place an award-winning wine farm and you’re set for an all round excellent day! We were very lucky indeed to spend one such day on a recent Saturday at the […]

This week’s weekend wandering is short and sweet… because my visit to this destination was, unfortunately, far too short and I didn’t spend as much time here as I should have! Not to worry… I’ll just have to return!! And in the meantime I’ll just have to whet your appetite! After a busy visit to […]

Restaurant Review: Haute Cabriere Cellar Restaurant

For some, winter = hibernation. Duvet days, Netflix, heaters, blankets and never leaving the house, but, although there is nothing wrong with those kinds of days, the risk is that you’d be missing out on so much if you never went out on cold, wet days! Winter in the Western Cape is amazing. The weather […]
