    CHEFS Cape Town by Emma-Jane-001-7976

    My favourite restaurants in Cape Town are the ones that take no reservations. They leave room for wonderful spontaneity and the promise of an amazing meal if you arrive early enough to get a table.

    We love Chefs Warehouse and Thali for that reason, because if you suddenly have friends in town, without a reservation made a month in advance at a town favourite, you can easily show up early and almost always be guaranteed a table!

    Another similar discovery with an entirely new dining experience is Chefs!

    A lovely, bright corner spot in Gardens serving fine dining food in a canteen format.

    Everyday there are 3 options on the menu and one dessert (changing on their website daily). You order at the front on an ipad, and your gorgeous gourmet tray is brought to your table swiftly.

    It’s a well oiled machine, and makes it an easy option for a mid week lunch or early dinner.
