• Table Mountain is undeniably Cape Town’s star and is one of the prime reasons people come from near, far and wide to visit. What could be better than enjoying one of the city’s finest eateries while gazing upon the mountain’s beauty?

    Here is a list of restaurants where you can see Table Mountain in all its splendour while enjoying world-class meals:

    The Pot Luck Club

    The Pot Luck Club is situated on the top floor of the Silo of the Old Biscuit Mill on Albert Road, Woodstock and opened its doors on Valentine’s Day in 2013.

    It has been dubbed the coolest place to be in Cape Town and its success is based on innovative cuisine, served in a relaxed yet edgy environment in a part of Cape Town that has never attracted an evening dining crowd.

    • Time: Bookings open on the 1st of each month at 8:30am South African time for the following month.
    • Location: 373 Albert Rd, Woodstock
