So I recently booked a table at the new Villa 47 in Bree St for a little girls dinner.  I had heard a lot of rave reviews about the place (along with the odd not so great one, won’t lie), but was very excited to try it out for myself.

In total, Villa 47 is […]

The concept of the space is to be a relaxing meeting place where you can catch up with friends, perhaps do a bit of work (they […]

Tapas deliciousness at Dalliance in the V&A Waterfront

The V&A Waterfront may feel a bit touristy to some, but it’s always been one of my favourite spaces.  Shopping wise I way prefer it over cAnal Walk. 😉  And a roam around while taking in the pretty harbour views is always something that puts a smile on my face.

But with so many dining […]

    A dash of fine dining goodness over at Dash Restaurant & Bar

A dash of fine dining goodness over at Dash Restaurant & Bar

I recently had the pleasure of trying out the beautiful Dash Restaurant & Bar which is situated within the Queen Victoria Hotel in the V&A Waterfront.

Now if you’re going “Oh yes… The Queen Victoria Hotel is that one by…”  You’re probably thinking of the wrong one, because the Queen in this instance is quite well hidden.

To […]

Maison in Franschhoek – An absolute stunner

My thoughts on Café Chic by Conrad Gallagher

So I will admit, I’ve been sitting on this one for about 2 weeks now, not really sure how to approach it… The name Conrad Gallagher is surrounded by so much negativity due to his previous business dealings here in SA (as well as in other parts of the world), but I really don’t […]

Delicious pasta goodness over at the Pasta Café in Green Point

When it comes to a good comfort meal, a tasty bowl of pasta really does hit the spot, doesn’t it?

There is however a big different between regular ol’ pre-made pasta and fresh, homemade pasta that’s been prepared from scratch.  But with crazy schedules, who’s got time for that?

Well luckily that’s where the Pasta Café […]
