There’s no shortage of dining options on the Cape Peninsula, but the choice is sometimes overwhelming. These are some of the best lunch restaurants on the Peninsula, which we frequently recommend to our guests.

Casual, quick lunch options

Seaforth – Set next to the white sands of Seaforth beach, close to the African penguin colony, this restaurant caters to all tastes (recommended family option).

Saveur – overlooking Simonstown harbour, good food and quick service.

Mangata – A relaxed Simonstown eatery offering tasty cuisine and splendid views of the False Bay coastline and the harbour across the street (awaiting a liquor licence).

Linger-longer – fine dining on the Cape Peninsula

Harbour House – exquisite seafood and breathtaking views across False Bay.

Two Oceans – Feast on sublime seafood and more whilst enjoying panoramic views across False Bay.

The Foodbarn – Renowned Chef Franck Dangereux serves delicious and decadent ‘fine-dining’ style food in a relaxed and characterful old barn.

Cape Point Vineyards Restaurant – Set on a beautiful wine estate with sweeping views across Noordhoek and Long Beach and offering a diverse menu. Insider tip: closed on Thursdays for their busy afternoon food market.
