Tiger’s Milk Restaurant & Bar in Muizenberg

The owner of the renowned Harbour House Group makes waves in Cape Town’s surfing suburb with the launch of a hip new hangout

Muizenberg has long been in need of a drop of Tiger’s Milk. The beachside suburb’s culinary scene has been a little dull and dreary for quite some time now, and so the launch of a restaurant and bar that’s hip enough to fit in seamlessly on Cape Town’s with-it Bree Street is, it would seem, just what the foodie ordered.

“Until now, there’s been nothing in Muizenberg for those looking for somewhere that’s a little hipster and vibey,” says Tiger’s Milk’s founder, Michael Townsend, who happens to be the perfect man to inject some cool into the easy, breezy area considering he also owns a few other immensely successful Mother City restaurants, including Harbour House and La Parada.

With raw brick, rough wood, mismatched seating, vibrant pops of colour, an offbeat glass light installation and eclectic décor, the second-floor space, which opened in December 2014, certainly channels a ‘hipster’ feel and it has enough rustic pizzazz to hook in people from as ‘far’ away as Cape Town’s CBD. But it’s comforting to see that the bar has also been moulded to suit the seaside suburb it’s in: a laidback, eternal summer sort of feel prevails and is accentuated by floor-to-ceiling glass doors that fold away to let the sea breeze in; long, communal tables that can seat large groups give a nod to the neighbourhood’s close-knit community; and showers and lockers at the back make Tiger’s Milk a welcoming hangout for anyone who’s come straight off the sandy beach.

Of course, the chief reminder that the restaurant is, in fact, not on some corner of Kloof Street, but rather right next to the Cape’s cool waters is the dramatic ocean view that’s visible from every seat in the house.  That is, even from all the way at the back of the expansive venue, visitors can see the straight line of the sea kiss the clear sky, and from right in the front, they can take in all the beachfront festivities while reclining on comfy sofas, a cocktail, craft beer or glass of wine in hand.

Speaking  of drinks, there’s a wide enough range to keep visitors well lubricated until the early hours of the morning (and that includes around nine artisan brews on tap), and as far as the grub goes, well, it’s on par with the whole stand-out look and feel of the space. More specifically, Tiger’s Milk specialises in ‘dude food’: fare that’ll tickle any man’s tummy – think prime steaks; thin-based, wood-fired pizzas that are liberally strewn with seasonal toppings; and juicy burgers made with three different cuts of the famed Farmer Angus’s free-range meat.

While the venue is first and foremost a restaurant and beer hall, on Wednesday and Sunday nights, it also ups the tempo with music spun by local DJs, and dancing is definitely not prohibited. Tiger’s Milk is certainly not meant to be the next Tiger Tiger, but it is a great new nightlife addition to the once rather lacklustre suburb of Muizenberg, which is yet another reason why it’ll likely quickly claw its way into the hearts of both Cape Peninsula dwellers and those from farther afield.

Tip: The restaurant runs food and drink specials from time to time, so be sure to ask your waiter if there’s anything on the go on the day of your visit.

The Bill: Visitors can expect prices that are in the mid to upper range, with pizzas averaging around R85, burgers coming in at about R75 and steaks sitting between R97 and R160.

Opening Hours: Monday – Sunday: 11am – 2am (the kitchen closes at 10pm)
