Sharing is Caring: Tasty Tapas-Style Restaurants To Try

Tapas-style dining is becoming increasingly popular in the Mother City. Originating in Spain, this exciting dining experience refers to an assortment of appetisers, snacks or small dishes. The idea is to order multiple plates, allowing diners to share and sample a wide range of flavours in a single meal.

These are some of our stand-outs:


“A place where the food is consistently spectacular and the environment familiar but ever-surprising” 

Housed in a quiet original Cape heritage building off Bree Street, this elegant spot is owned by twins who have created a space together which speaks to their love of food.

They work closely with farmers and fishermen to curate a menu that aligns with their core values of sustainability and seasonality, creating food that is simple and enjoyable.

“A contemporary celebration of Cyprus and Greece’s regional dishes and culinary traditions”

Ouzeri, by Nic Charalambous, is a casual dining restaurant that serves modern interpretations of traditional Greek recipes.  His aim is to put Cypriot cuisine on the Map in South Africa and boy, is he succeeding!

This menu expertly bridges the gap between familiar and experimental, offering diners dishes that are brimming with flavour and panache. Do not skip the Eliopita!

Definitely a must-visit during your cape town stay.

“Mexican, but not as you know it”

Feel yourself being transported to Baja, California, Hacienda is a great spot that allows diners to eat authentic coastal Mexican cuisine with a modern twist. 

Found in the heart of Bree Street, this restaurant offers an extremely unique experience, with food that you won’t find anywhere else in the city. 

A highlight for us was the guacamole made to order at your table, fresh tortillas and a highly nurtured live culture mole sauce to die for! 

Bright, fresh and extremely tasty!
