Restaurants she rates in 2019

For a casual meal Foxcroft. Relaxing vibe and the food is really good!
For a special occasion Makaron Restaurant [at Majeka House]. The food concept is really special and they have a great winelist. The intimate and modern space is a great place to celebrate a special occasion.
For a guilty pleasure De Vrije Burger
For a Winelands experience Overture. Great view, great winelist and great food.
For authentic cuisine Genki. I would eat there every week! Best Japanese tapas, and I just love the whole feel of the place.
Best new restaurant Janse & Co
Best “oldie but goodie” Decameron. Food is always so good. Great place to spend time with good friends.
The best restaurant overall Wolfgat. Such attention to detail. Perfect view and a unique experience every time!
