About Us

Welcome to Inside Guide, a hand-picked selection of the best experiences in the Cape.

We’re a team of passionate Capetonians committed to sharing the magic of the Mother City. We spend our days (and nights) checking out new (and old) restaurants and bars, visiting galleries, museums and markets, and attending events in town and the Winelands, hand-picking the best to share with our community. 

No establishment is too fancy or too insignificant for us: if something has heart, feels authentic, inspires or excites us, and makes us feel good, we want to share it with you! And while we’re often first with the hottest new restaurants and other openings, we haven’t forgotten about our long-standing favourites and hidden gems.

We’ve done all the research for you. Our write-ups are accurate and informative, accompanied by sharp photography and clean design, to give you a clear idea of what’s on offer. We also provide direct booking links for many of our listings.

Inside Guide does not publish negative reviews, so if we have a less-than-satisfactory experience at an establishment, we’d rather give private feedback to them directly than doing so on our public platform.

Welcome to our community. Let’s enjoy all the Cape has to offer.
