Greek Restaurant
$$
“I almost don't want to write this review for fear that it gets so popular I won't get a table on a whim every again, but this one is too good not too share and I believe in giving credit where credit is due. In my opinion this is the best Greek food in Cape Town and as it's actually cuisine I'm very fond of, I don't say this lightly. The staff are warm and accommodating. Food is consistently excellent. The mezze (halloumi especially), gyro, lamb chops, creamy tzatziki and bughasta dessert are always winners and our favourites. We eat here often and it's a real neighbourhood gem. Completely unpretentious and utterly charming.”

Bistro
$$
“Con Brio is the local bistro in Vredehoek which everyone frequents for its delicious food, reasonable prices and home-from-home atmosphere. The Con Brio menu is varied and they have list of starter portions which immediately tempt the palate. In fact, some people skip the main course altogether and rather have two or three small plates as their meal. The crème brûlée comes highly recommended, as does the rest of the dessert menu. Booking is recommended, though I have never arrived there and been turned away.”
