When the hard work is done, relax with live background music as you reward yourself with a bountiful harvest feast prepared by talented chef Edmore Ruzoza of The Red Table restaurant, situated in Nederburg’s elegant manor house, dating to 1800.

Looking to live life to the fullest during Cape Town’s glorious summer season? Visit the elegant Cucina Labia, a destination restaurant situated on Muizenberg’s historic mile, a mere 30 to 40 minutes’ drive from Cape Town.

Under the management of food lovers Andrea and Oscar Foulkes of the successful Cape Town based catering company, Dish Food & Social, the eatery is housed in the historic historic Casa Labia, where original art by Irma Stern, Gerard Sekoto, Francois Boucher and others, is displayed in a manner that belies both its rarity and value. The graciousness of the building, and the way it imposes itself on the False Bay coastline, is a product of it being built in the 1920s by the wealthy daughter of a Randlord and her Italian diplomat husband, who wanted to reflect 18th century Venice.

With this as backdrop, what cuisine could possibly match Casa Labia’s sense of occasion? Read more GET A TASTE OF LA DOLCE VITA AT CUCINA LABIA THIS SUMMER
