December 2016. The hottest restaurants in Cape Town and the winelands.

Restaurants in Cape Town are not just hot, they are sizzling. And in season it is almost impossible to get a table at the some of the ones that have been gathering up awards. Getting a booking at The Test Kitchen or La Colombe is well-nigh impossible- you need to book your table before you even book your flight!

This year in the 2016 Eat Out Awards, 3 of the top 10 are in Cape Town, and 6 in the Cape winelands. But if you can’t get a reservation at one of these, don’t despair, there are many other fabulous places to eat. Tastetrip has checked with our foodie friends and compiled a list for you, so bon appétit everyone!
