Botriver Rainbow Spring Weekend

Over at Toomuchloveliness, we are huge fans of Botriver. I think it is the coolest kick-ass town just about ever. We first discovered Botriver on our trip up to their first every Botriviera Spring Weekend. We booked a little self catering spot at Uitwaaien, signed up for the fancy Friday dinner and had a glorious…

A Winter Weekend in Paternoster with De Linden

Paternoster means “Our Father” and is said to refer to the prayers of Portuguese sailors visiting our shores. Paternoster is about 145 kilometres from Cape Town and is one of the oldest villages on the West Coast. And it was recently our first time visiting this beautiful little village!

Toomuchloveliness: Love Thy Neighbour on Bree Street

Love Thy Neighbour on Bree Street

I recently visited Love Thy Neighbour on Bree Street with one of my besties for a big boozie lunch. We started at 1pm and only left at 5pm because we had made plans for the evening! We would happily have spent more time sitting under the gas heaters drinking great wine and finishing yet another…

Toomuchloveliness: The Silo Hotel Willaston Bar

Drinks at The Silo Hotel: The Willaston Bar

The Silos have kind of become a thing around Cape Town. We have the super swanky Silo Hotel, the recent opening of gorgeous design shops and the upcoming launch of Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA).

Toomuchloveliness: Shio Restaurant

Shio: Modern Japanese in the Waterkant

Shio is quite comfortably in my top ten restaurants in Cape Town. The food they are creating is incredible and beautiful and unique and whilst being all these things is actually damn delicious too. Shio is the baby sister of Cheyne’s in Hout Bay (another restaurant in my top ten). For a long time if…

Franschhoek has cottoned on to this and has started their own Food and Wine Experience at La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek on the First Thursday of every month through winter.…

One Marine Drive in Hermanus

One Marine Drive in Hermanus

We love heading out of Cape Town and exploring new towns. Despite Hermanus only being an hour and a half away from Cape Town it is a town I haven’t visited for years. One Marine Drive in Hermanus was the perfect excuse to head back and explore a little further. I am going to do a…

Lily's Restaurant Green Point

Lily’s Restaurant for Lunch in Green Point

When I was little my dad would take me for breakfast at Newport Deli. It was always busy and full of Sea Point regulars. Newport Deli closed a few years ago and the spot stayed empty. There was suddenly a hole in the dedicated local eating scene. Finally, Lily’s Restaurant has take over the Newport…

Restaurant In Stellenbosch

Work Lunch Special at La Colombe

La Colombe is an exceptional restaurant, one of the top food experiences in our country and ranked number 73 on the the World 50 Best list. I have joined them for an incredible birthday lunch before and as wonderful as this experience was it is a little pricey. What is really exciting about La Colombe is…
