On the lips of the Atlantic Ocean and skirting the South African province of the Western Cape is the chic Bungalow Restaurant & Lounge. This is more than a trendy escape at which to enjoy fine dining and excellent wines (although that can safely be expected). The Bungalow is about a cunning meeting of glam and glitzy with all things earthy and rustic.
Being situated on the picturesque Clifton Beach of Cape Town, there is absolutely nothing to interrupt the panoramic views of the ocean for patrons of The Bungalow. The views of the mountains swooping to meet the ocean are rivalled only by the spectacular sunsets, which are best enjoyed along with a cocktail or glass of the finest bubbly.
The menu is less of a structured eating plan and more of an adventure. Fresh sushi, carpaccio and line fish meet chunky homemade breads and piles of delectable vegetables in a unique fusion of all things delicious. These can be enjoyed in the elegant indoor dining area, or on the deck, with fresh air and sunshine adding their bit to the mix. South African wines, French champagne and a host of cocktails are all par for the course at The Bungalow Restaurant & Lounge.
This is the venue of choice for a number of events; ranging from weddings and birthdays to corporate dinners and product launches. The elegant décor and world-class setting ensures that visitors will have a very memorable, very special time at The Bungalow.
Although somewhat other-worldly in its sense of retreat, The Bungalow has the distinct advantage of being situated close to the City Bowl of Cape Town, as well as the many accommodation and tourist facilities of the Mother City. These include Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront and Robben Island.
