Port Elizabeth and Eastern CapeEating Out in the Eastern Cape Province
Vast sandy beaches, the warm waves of the Indian Ocean, and the rolling hills of the countryside of the Eastern Cape make for the idyllic setting in which a collection of South Africa’s most loved restaurants can be found. The Eastern Cape remains one of the country’s quieter provinces in terms of international tourism, imbuing it with a laid-back, inviting atmosphere that is just about perfect for those wanting to savour the deliciousness of this vibrant country at a peaceful pace.
Port Elizabeth, East London, and Jeffrey’s Bay are the bigger centres in the Eastern Cape. Here, there are fast-food outlets, gorgeous buffets, quirky cafés and formal restaurants with unique twists. There are also many eateries that introduce international influences on their menus; including Chinese, Italian, Portuguese, Thai, Greek, and more. The malls are littered with coffee shops that promise excellent hot drinks, decadent sweets, and lovely light lunches.
Most of the popular holiday towns such as Kenton-on-Sea and St Francis Bay, are dotted along the coastline, which means that diners have gorgeous views while they enjoy awesome meals and the freshest seafood. There are also many game reserves and parks further inland, and these too have their share of excellent restaurants with innovative and exciting menu items.
