FABER restaurant food and wine

Things to do this Father’s Day

Beer, biltong, golf, movies, gin-making, special lunch + more

The best way to give your dad the Father’s Day he’d love is by first asking him what he’d love to do on this day of the year that’s been dedicated to papas the world over. And if he loves to eat well, drink well, experiment with making stuff or get active, we have some ideas for you.  


FABER, on Avondale Wine Estate outside Paarl, is one of South Africa’s leading restaurants. It follows a strongly organic and nose-to-tail approach to cooking (including with vegetables) and its food has won awards. Book a date with your dad at this gem of a restaurant. If it’s cold, ask for a seat near the roaring fireplace, but if it’s a good day, opt for the veranda that overlooks lush gardens. The seasonal and organic menu offers a 2-course, 3-course, or 6-course lunch.

Talking to You

Between cocktails on the deck at Ficks or creating your personal gin, how will you spend your special birthday? Take the kids away for a glamping trip – it’s so accessible on Wolfkop’s camping specials. Tick shark-cage diving, waterfall hunting or wine tasting off your bucket list. We can definitively say it’s winter now: find a warm new place to try with your partner. For daily discoveries, join us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, or trawl through our newsletter.
