Bloubergstrand is best known for its spectacular views of Table Mountain across Table Bay. The area encompasses 48 kilometres of sandy white beaches all with magnificent views of Devil´s Peak, Table Mountain and Lion´s Head as well as Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela and many other political prisoners spent part of their sentences.
When in Bloubergstrand, there are a few places that no self respecting foodie should miss out on; and they are Petits Fours Delicatessen, On the Rocks, and Ons Huisie.
Petits Fours Delicatessen’s charming, warm and cozy atmosphere with its characteristic French theme and sunny South African hospitality makes it one of our favourite Bloubergstrand restaurants. Petit Fours is definitely an aesthetic experience for the senses, offering appealing gifts, mouth-watering, distinctive fare and delicacies baked for your pleasure.
Petits Fours combines French bistro, local West Coast cuisine and delicatessen to mouth-watering perfection in a beautiful heritage site that is over 200 years old. Enjoy a fusion of French and local dishes, delicious baked delicacies, as well as a range of exciting gifts and décor ideas.
The history of the area, the food selection and the décor are all contributing factors to the current character of Petits Fours. It is a character you will undoubtedly fall in love with, as where else can you enjoy lovingly-prepared, fresh foods from our revolutionary menu, or choose from the wide variety of over 30 different pastries and cakes, baked on site daily at a lovely location on the West Coast?
Petit Fours Restaurant has a unique and exclusive menu, including breakfasts, deli sandwiches, wraps, Tapas, salads, pies, pastries and quiches. Have you tried their renowned “Chicken Cheesecake”? They also serve delicious Italian coffee and have several imported teas to choose from.
If character, charm and class top your short-list for beach function venues, you have to investigate On the Rocks. One of the most widely acclaimed restaurants in Cape Town, On the Rocks has served locals and international travellers for 56 years.
Diners can watch ships entering Table Bay, frolicking dolphins or a lonesome whale letting off steam as they savour our mouth-watering cuisine. The atmosphere, cuisine, service and the beauty of the view will delight your senses!
On the Rocks boasts a Venetian fireplace, with Greek mythology inscriptions on its mantle. A whiskey and cigar lounge makes the entire dining area smoke free for all its patrons. Feeling the ocean breeze and watching the dolphins swim past is the event of the day incorporated with cuisine for any dining connoisseur.
The restaurant literally rolls out the red carpet for weddings and promotes other romantic occasions, such as vow renewals and engagement celebrations. For absolute privacy, consider booking the entire restaurant.
On the Rocks is positioned a few short steps from the Atlantic Ocean, with scenic backdrops of Cape Town and Table Mountain.
Literally translated as ‘our little house’, this historic building now houses a restaurant like no other. Ons Huisie was built in the nineteenth century and is a national monument. It retains its old-world fishing village charm and is a landmark along the seafront.
The cuisine at Ons Huisie is delicious. The setting is superb and there is no place better to enjoy a glass of red wine on a cold and blustery winter day.
The options are simple, yet delightful – take in the crisp ocean air during our sunny days whilst overlooking the majestic Atlantic or on a chilly winter’s evening pull up a chair and enjoy our traditional cottage-style hospitality in doors.
Our friendly childminders will be on hand during peak hours to keep an eye on your young future doctors and lawyers as they enjoy our colourful wonderland. We at Ons Huisie have ensured that this area is a smoke free environment and have provided for additional tables to be set directly next to the area so you can enjoy your meal whilst still keeping an eye on your little ones.
They not only provide for your little ones, but for your furry ones too. Ons Huisie is a dog friendly establishment and boasts with their very own doggie bar upon entry.
Enjoy the flavours of Bloubergstrand at any of these wonderful establishments!
