Chefs Warehouse & Canteen in Cape Town

Chefs Warehouse is back on Bree Street

Last updated: 21 February 2023 

Chefs Warehouse is coming back to Bree Street in March 2023. Across the road from where it first opened, this acclaimed restaurant will have a home in the three-story culinary experience, The Bailey. 


Renowned chef Liam Tomlin is bringing Chefs Warehouse back to its original home, Bree Street. First opened in 2014, Chefs Warehouse has become known for its imaginative tapas and small plates that are influenced by global cuisine. It’s opening in early March 2023.

Chefs Warehouse offers tapas from around the world (with a fine dining twist, of course). Fans can expect favourites from the original restaurant, like salt and pepper squid with chilli, pineapple and caramelised ginger, Vietnamese rice paper rolls and the signature risotto. There will be new dishes on offer as well. 

Chefs Warehouse is well known for its ‘Tapas for Two’ menu. Credit: Chefs Warehouse at The Bailey


The Bailey is a three-storey culinary experience located in a historic building. Also the brainchild of Tomlin, each floor has a different feel. Brasserie Bailey offers classic French-inspired cuisine, while the top level, The Old Bailey, is a classy rooftop bar and lounge. Chefs Warehouse will replace the casual breakfast and lunch spot, Bailey Bistro.
