Winter Specials for Cape Town Restaurants!

I got this fantastic list in my inbox the other day from Karel, with all the specials at some of the best restaurants in Cape Town. Now who ever made this list is a genius, but no one seems to know who, so no one can actually give the credit where it is due. If you want a day to day look at specials at some of the other restaurants in Cape Town, (oh and the clubs) go and check out NoBucks (click here) cause that is one handy webguide to finding out what special is going down, at which restaurant and for how many hours during that day. They are that accurate… seriously though, check them out! But for now, take a look at the list I have for you:

How good is this list? Some of my favourite restuarants are all throwing in some really insane specials. I think I will be heading back to the Five Flies after a recent birthday dinner we all had there. It was insane and to see they have lowered the 3 course meal special even lower then it was when we were there down to R150. Its a given to say I will be there again soon! Oh, did I mention that you must go check out NoBucks as well, they will save you bucks when you need it most. Its a pity some of these end today but there are alot running for the next couple of months! Be sure to check them out…

Like it? Share with your friends!

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…


  1. Thanks for dropping by Clare. Flipping AWESOME list you have there…

    Did you make the list? Must have taken a helluva long time… thanks for the link to the updated list… 🙂

  2. HI there,

    Whale Cottage started a list and I then tracked down a whole heap of other specials.

    Enjoy it!!



  3. The specials with the Spare ribs and Seafood combo at Lazzafe Restaurant is false advertisement. I went to the restaurant last night, with my family to try out these specials and was told by the waiter that this was only an opening special and is no longer valid.

  4. Thanks for letting me know Nazley, I have removed it from the list… If anyone knows of anymore specials that arent running and are still on the list (besides the ones that say end 31st May) please please please let us know 🙂

    Thanks again Nazley

  5. Is anyone aware what restaurant specials are running from September 2010 onwards?

  6. Hey Maxx…

    For up to date specials, I would tell you too head straight to No Bucks ( It is a website designed by some mates of mine to provided you will all the best specials across Cape Town. Day by DAY! The best thing about it is that it is always updated with newer and better specials!!

    Enjoy 🙂
