You might have noticed we have added a few gastronomic options in our 2017 LTL Travel Collection. One of our favourite destinations is Cape Town. This new place is just one of many reasons we love that part of the world. We’ve also lived there for nearly 7 years and we can’t wait to go back to experience all the new opportunities to LiveTheLife.

Such a great evening, the atmosphere was amazing and the food extraordinary!! The crispy octopus was the star of the evening for me, such burst of flavour!!!! Will definitely be going back soon!!

Beautiful restaurant and a superb food offering. One of Cape Town’s best.

Luke Dale-Roberts is a name synonymous with some of the best in culinary experiences in the country, and the world. His Cape Town restaurant The Test Kitchen is ranked 22nd in the 2016 world’s 50 best restaurants and selected as the best restaurant in Africa by Continent Restaurant Awards. “The award is an incredible vote of confidence for me and my team,” Dale-Roberts says. “I do what I love, with precision and artistry, and being awarded for this validates what I do every day.” This year has also seen Dale-Roberts and his team expand their culinary footprint to Johannesburg, where he launched ‘Luke Dale-Roberts at The Saxon’. And Cape Town has another restaurant, The Shortmarket Club; it’s a partnership between Dale-Roberts, his wife Sandalene, chef Wesley Randles and manager Simon Widdison. Read the Tripadvisor Reviews

Johannesburg has more international long haul flights and is closer to the top safari destinations, yet almost every traveler planning a South African itinerary arrives in or departs from Cape Town, which takes a slight – not much – bit of extra effort. Why? Because it’s worth it. Cape Town is unique, but if you need a frame of reference to better get perspective, it bears some comparison to Sydney and San Francisco – it sits on the water and the waterfront is a marquee attraction. Like Sydney, its adjacent coast contains a mix of funky and upscale beach/surfing suburbs, one after another. Like San Francisco, it provides very easy access to the nation’s prime wine region. And like both, is has its own unique urban attractions and landmarks.
