There are so many great dining experiences to be had in Cape Town, one really is spoilt for choice. This selection is based on proximity to Maison Noir, or standout favourites that we personally love. Many of these restaurants have limited booking windows and require deposits. Our manager will help you secure bookings for your stay on request.


Blanko, Alphen Hotel – A favourite with our guests. Excellent seafood and conveniently nearby.

Chef’s Warehouse, Beau Constantia – Just 5 minutes drive away on the Constantia wine route. A stunning venue with a tasting-style menu that is regarded as a Cape Town top 5 restaurant. Wine tasting is also available.
