Restaurants offering Sit-Down service in Cape Town and Winelands in Lockdown Level 3: a First List!



On Monday restaurants were allowed to reopen for Sit-Down Service, after having only been allowed to offer a Food Delivery service from May, and a Food and Alcohol Delivery and Collection Service from June onwards.

I have been requested to prepare a list of Restaurants offering a Sit-Down Service, in addition to the Facebook Group which I created of Restaurants offering Food and Alcohol Delivery and Collection. The majority of restaurants offering a Sit-Down service will continue offering a Food and Alcohol Delivery and/or Collection Service. 

Yesterday I posted a list of the Restaurants which have closed down permanently since Lockdown:

Cape Restaurant Covid-19 Closures exceed 40, Restaurants for Sit-Down reopen in Lockdown Level 3 but most retain Delivery/Collection Service: July 2020!

PLEASE NOTE: it is not cool to copy and paste my full or a part of my list of Restaurants below without my permission or credit to me! You are welcome to share my Blogpost as a whole. 


The only Eat Out Top 10 Restaurants offering a Sit-Down Service currently are La Colombe, Eike,  and La Petite Colombe.


I have used the same geographic breakdown as I do in my Lockdown Food Delivery and Collection Facebook Group, to present the first list of Restaurants offering a Sit-Down Service:
