Drinks at The Silo Hotel: The Willaston Bar

The Silos have kind of become a thing around Cape Town.

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…

Toomuchloveliness: La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek

First Thursday’s with La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek

One Marine Drive in Hermanus

One Marine Drive in Hermanus
