Toomuchloveliness: Charango

Charango in Bree Street goes Barbacoa

I last visited Charango a-whole-nother boyfriend ago. And we had a lovely meal but never felt like I needed to go back. So when an invite to Charango popped into my inbox I though… um, that Peruvian place? Sure… could be good. I quickly popped onto their website and found a completely new restaurant! Charango…

La Tete Winter Special

We snuck in a midweek date night at La Tete recently and it was such a lovely evening! What made it even better was the great winter special which really makes these midweek date nights possible! To keep this post super honest I want to let you know that this is our second visit to…

Toomuchloveliness: Seabreeze on Bree Street

Oyster Party at Seabreeze on Bree Street

Seabreeze on Bree Street opened last year and they started with a bang! R10 an oyster during their happy hours of 12pm to 1pm and 5pm to 6pm EVERY single day.

Toomuchloveliness: Makaron Stellenbosch

Small Plates with Makaron in Stellenbosch

A very long time ago I joined Makaron in Stellenbosch for dinner and we enjoyed a fine dining meal in the kitchen at the chef’s table with amazing food and incredible wine pairings. To date this meal stands out as one of the best I have ever had in Stellenbosch. Fast forward quite some time…

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…

If you have been following the blog you will know I am a huge fan of Kyoto Garden Sushi. It is one restaurant that we consistently return to and are always impressed by the dishes. We have a few big hit favourites but try taste more dishes on the menu every time. The only problem…

Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Our first trip out to the winelands for 2017 was Hartenberg Wine Estate and they have set a fantastic tone for the year of adventuring to come! Hartenberg is known for their picnics, their shiraz and their beautiful gardens. I have been to a picnic at Hartenberg before and really enjoyed the experience. This time…

Picnic’ing with Grande Provence

Picnic’ing with Grande Provence

I can never resist a good picnic – especially when you’re picnic’ing on a wine farm with a glass of chilled rosé in one hand and a hunk of french stick with a slab of brie in the other. Grande Provence did an amazing job of providing all that and more. We arrived at Grande…

Warwick in Stellenbosch is famous for their picnics and were one of the first farms to introduce a gourmet picnic on their rolling lawns. I have…
