Addis in Cape

Addis in Cape When considering global cuisine, Ethiopia is not really a country that springs to mind, but the warm hospitality, authentic decor and traditional food make this a unique experience for visitors.

Mezzaluna

With a buffet and regularly changing a la carte menu, this is authentic Italian food at its best - simple, full of flavour. Think bone marrow risotto or veal tortellini, paper-thin carpaccio, gnocchi with burnt sage butter and tiramisu. The owner is a retired banker indulging his passion for good food, and we like that he doesn't charge corkage as long as you give him a...

L'Aperitivo

Run by two boisterous and passionate Italian brothers, L'Aperitivo is one of those small places where you can feel at home and before long you'll be offered off-menu specials. As It is, dishes change regularly and are written on a chalkboard. In Italian of course. The corner location in the middle of the city is a great place to 'sit back, sip an espresso and watch the...

And don't forget the artisan bakery, which churns out a range of fresh breads and pastries every day. The secret to the...

Coi’ Cacchio

Coi’ Cacchio Invented in Italy, perfected in South Africa, the Col'Cacchio Pizzeria name has become synonymous with a range of crisp thin-based pizzas with more toppings than you can shake a wedge of Parmesan at, and an impressive variety of freshly prepared salads and pastas.

Iziko Planetarium

The late American sci-fi writer Robert A. Heinlein perhaps summed up space best when he said, The Earth is just too small and fragile a basket for the human race to keep all its eggs in". Reclining in the chairs and looking up at the recreated night sky containing an infinite amount of exploding balls of gas, moons and planets kind of does your head in, but in an...

Noon Gun

Noon Gun As certain as death and taxes, Cape Towns noon gun has been booming away steadily atop Signal Hill since 1902, making the city's populace jump out of their shoes before exclaiming incredulously, 'Is it 12 o'clock already? The twin cannons used to be situated in the Castle of Good Hope until the British occupation in 1806, when the English came up with the idea of moving...
