Cape Town Winter Specials and Warming Menus

Get cosy with toasty winter deals at top-notch Mother City restaurants and other establishments

Last Updated:19 June 2017

Wintertime in Cape Town tends to compel locals to retreat into the warmth and comfort of their homes; shorter days, longer nights and moodier skies are generally likely to lead to three solid months of hibernation. In the 2017 winter, however, prepare to be lured out from under your comfy duvet to sample some of the best belly-warming menus the Mother City has to offer and to cash in on great cold season deals at other establishments (from spas to yoga studios). Whether it is at a restaurant that’s always been on your radar or at an upscale eatery that’s normally out of your budget, you can satisfy your curiosity and your cravings while heating yourself up from the inside out with these unbeatable Cape Town winter specials.
