South African food restaurants in Cape Town

South African food is a mix of various cultures and at the same time, good quality products as most of them are produced in South Africa.The lambs come from the Karoo, the Kinklip from our Oceans, the fruits and veggies from local farmers. We have it (nearly) all in South Africa! If you are looking for ‘lekker’(good in Afrikaans) and local food, I advise you to go to one of these following restaurants.
