Café Roux

Since opening in 2006, Café Roux has become an institution in the Noordhoek Valley. Set in a quaint, old-fashioned farm village, the café is half restaurant, half outdoor music venue, and classy enough to impress on both counts.

Why go?

Expect a fresh, seasonal menu, accompanied by chalkboard specials that change regularly. Sit outside in the sun under sprawling oak trees or in a walled-off, child-friendly corner beside the playground.

As arguably one of the best Italian-style eateries in the Mother City, Massimo’s needs little introduction—if any, to be frank.

Why go?

There’s pasta and spuntini (tapas-style small plates) on offer, but the wood-fired thin-crust pizzas are a Massimo’s speciality.
