The explosion of restaurant openings in Cape Town and the Winelands in the last two months is a concern to many, both as restaurant lovers, in that one cannot keep up, and as restaurant owners, as there is not enough business for everyone.

Last month saw the opening of Seta at Villa 47, Le coin Français by Darren Badenhorst in Franschhoek, The Bistro and Deli at La Paris outside Franschhoek, Chef Duncan Doherty’s Eatery at Colmant in Franschhoek, and Boschendal at Oude Bank in Stellenbosch, amongst others.

Reuben’s Franschhoek, and The Big Dog belonging to Terbedore Coffee Roasters, opened in Franschhoek in May. Both restaurants appear to be very popular amongst locals. A further new Franschhoek restaurant is rumored to be opening. The Promenade in Camps Bay is undergoing major changes, with Blues and Mezepoli appearing to have closed down, the former having operated in Camps Bay for 30 years, and having put Camps Bay on the tourist map. The Hard Rock Café is said to be opening in the Blues space, and Zenzero is undergoing a renovation.
