Take your taste buds on a food journey of decadence and delight, driving from Cape Town to the West Coast and then on to the ancient rocky landscape of the Cederberg, staying at hotels and lodges that wear the crown not only for their prime location and luxury lodgings, but also for the finest food.


Cosying up against the green skirts of one of the world’s most famous mountains, Cape Town needs little introduction as a world-class destination. Start your food tour at the Cellars-Hohenort Hotel in Constantia, a grand historic hotel set in almost 10 acres of award-winning gardens and serving some of the most exceptional food to be had in the mother city. Dine at Greenhouse and experience an innovative tasting menu and an unforgettable culinary adventure, on which courses are paired with the perfect wines.  Cellars-Hohenort also houses The Conservatory, which offers a classic menu featuring delectable all-time favourites. The Conservatory serves meals in the main dining section with fabulous garden views, and on the terrace.

Allow yourself a few nights here at Cellars-Hohenort, to explore the many delights, tastes and attractions of Cape Town. Mail us.

From Cape Town, make your way up the West Coast to the popular seaside village of Paternoster, one of the oldest fishing villages on the West Coast and a haven of natural beauty. The drive from Cape Town to Paternoster takes about 1:30. Stay beside the seaside at gorgeous Abalone House, a small boutique hotel where you will be cocooned in luxury. Feast at the hotel’s bistro-style Reuben’s – where celebrity chef Reuben Riffel presents some of the best food on the West Coast. Mail us.

Leave the coast behind you and make your way inland to the rocky wilderness of the Cederberg. You are headed for a magnificent wonderworld called Bushmans Kloof, a magical wilderness of open plains, rivers, clear waterfalls and ancient rock formations in the Cederberg Mountains. The distance from Paternoster is 206 km and will take about 2:40 by car. Enjoy extraordinary dining experiences in the most magical settings imaginable: at a romantic river boma, at a secluded rustic cottage deep in the reserve, on a starlit deck at Embers, or in the charming Homestead. Expect to savour authentic Cape cuisine accompanied by outstanding South African wines, French Champagnes and Cognacs. Mail us.
