We’ve divided this section of the guide up into three distinct areas:
Haute Cuisine (expect to pay between R600 and R800 per person for two courses including wine)
These places are aimed at a high end gourmet market. You will find service to be quite formal (but not always) and wine lists to be more extensive than most. Food can be very avant garde or traditional. You most likely won`t meet the owner or chef in person.
Bistros and Restaurants (expect to pay between R400 and R600 per person for two courses including wine)
These places are normally owner managed but don`t let this make you think that the food is not top flight. Dishes are more traditional, the atmosphere far less formal and the food and wine will be great to excellent but not necessarily stylish and chic.
Cafes and Bars (expect to pay between R200 and R500 per person for two courses including wine)
These places are normally open all day or sometimes just for lunch. Food can be very modern or very traditional and service very relaxed. Here you eat for the atmosphere and the fun of eating out. No posh frocks, please.
