International in Sea Point to Hout Bay

Overlooking Camps Bay, this heritage-listed 18th-century building, set in wooded grounds, houses an elegant restaurant. The menus mix South African recipes with European flair; dishes range from poached kingklip (a type of fish) to ostrich with red cabbage and mustard seeds.

From October to April, also consider a relaxed lunch on the lawns at Roundhouse's midrange Rumbullion restaurant, where you can snack on gourmet pizza and salads (mains R85 to R125). It's open noon to 5pm Tuesday to Thursday and 9am to 5pm Friday to Sunday.
