Top choice tapas in Simon's Town & Southern Peninsula

Offering a gastronomic take on False Bay cool, Salt serves mains such as wild kudu goulash, but your best bet is to focus on the small plates (R45), which range from wasabi-dusted calamari to bratwurst with homemade kimchi. The seafood dishes use what's available from the harbour, normally yellowfish; order the angelfish ceviche when it's going.

The decor nicely complements the building's original black-and-white tiled floor with wrought ironwork, piping shelves, blackboard menus and big windows overlooking the harbour. Mellow tunes such as Kings of Convenience on the stereo and craft beers on draught add up to a memorable evening. Reservations are not taken so get here early.
