The weather conditions for the weekend ahead are expected to reach lows of 14, with 90 percent prediction of rain. Life in Cape Town doesn’t need to stand still when the rain starts. There are so many restaurants, pubs and venues that are open on rainy days offering great specials and cosy fireplaces.

Here are a few of our favourites:

Cafe Roux in Noordhoek Village
Since opening their doors in 2006, café Roux has become an institution in the Noordhoek Valley. It’s a place for friends and family to meet, eat good food and drink great wine.
Visit www.caferoux.co.za for more information.

Societi Bistro
Societi Bistro is a neighbourhood “local”; a sanctuary for Capetonians and visitors looking for a home from home. Take time to savour a meal and enjoy the company of family and friends at this eatery while it’s cold out.

Chapman’s Peak Hotel, Hout Bay
The Chapmans Peak Restaurant was established over 25 years ago. It has become the grand old lady of outdoor seafood restaurants in Cape Town, with decades of worldwide reputation for its famous calamari and seafood.

La Mouette
La Mouette, meaning seagull in French, was named after the seagulls so often seen riding the breeze in Seapoint. La Mouette offers modern French cuisine with a distinctly Mediterranean flair, imitating the climate and produce of Southern France.
