The Cape Town on a Dime series – exploring the world class Mother City on a budget! Because times are tough but hey, who wants to sit at home all day! You might know some of the places we’ll be visiting, you might not. One thing’s for sure though, it will definitely be wallet friendly. All photos in this series will be taken with my iPhone 6 because one can’t be held down by a bulky DSLR camera (bless their beautiful souls) while having a good time.

The northern suburbs of Cape Town have always gotten a bad rap for its lack of leisure options. But if you actually take the time to explore this neglected suburb, you’ll find quite a few hidden gems. One of them being De Kelder restaurant and winery situated in the beautiful Plattekloof against the Tygerberg hill.

The venue is divided into a restaurant and bar area which operates seven days a week until 2am. If you’re looking for a fuss free hangout to have a nice sit down meal with the family then De Kelder restaurant is the place to visit. They offer good hearty meals served in generous portions and have a great wine list to boot. They’re open for breakfast, lunch and supper as well as late night drinks at the bar area and have daily specials which you can view on their website.

I love going to De Kelder for informal gatherings with friends. It’s got a great relaxed atmosphere and enough big screen televisions to keep the men happy! We watched the Soccer World Cup final here and even though the bar was packed, we had a wonderful evening and the waiters and kitchen staff were on point with their service on this busy evening.

So next time you’re in the northern suburbs, give them a visit.
