South Africa TravelFind Restaurants in South Africa
South Africa is special for countless region – its sheer and utter natural beauty, the deep heritage that pulses through its veins, the warmth and hospitality of its people, and the absolute sense of adventure that it inspires in those who have come to love this land. But, South Africa is also a key player in the global sphere of gourmet dining and culinary innovation.
There are massive urban metropolises – like Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban – in which some of the finest dining can be savoured within chic surrounds. But, there are also little retreats like Franschhoek, which has been dubbed the food and wine capital of South Africa, and is bursting at the seams with fantastic eateries that will guarantee that diners are plunged into a gourmet Nirvana.
The farmlands are speckled with stalls and country-style restaurants, where local flavours, techniques, and age-old traditions infuse every dish. The coast is littered with quaint fishing towns and seaside resorts that showcase the freshest seafood within laid-back elegance. And the mountains, forests and valleys are home to an eclectic collection of eateries with views that will take your breath away.
Dining in South Africa is as multi-faceted an experience as the people themselves. There are quaint country bistros, bustling urban bakeries, trendy coffee cafés, vibey cocktail bars, fine dining and silver service restaurants, and convenient take-aways. The menus are laden with South African favourites, but there is plenty of influence from Europe and Asia to create dining hotspots with a distinct cosmopolitan vibe.
Experience the utterly magical allure of South African when you work your way through its delectable restaurants for the culinary getaway of a lifetime.
