2015 Winter Restaurant Specials in the Cape Peninsula

Winter gets a bad wrap in the Cape and although it is a little chillier, crisper and wetter than summer, most days are still the equivalent of an average summer’s day in England!  (No offense meant to the British!).  Capetonians know the value of those secret winter days with crisp clear days, fewer crowds and no prevailing SE wind!  We also know the value of all the winter specials offered by restaurants and accommodation establishments on the Cape Point Route.

Header imageThere is no need to go into hibernation on the Cape Point Route in Winter 2015 as we have sourced a list of fantastic restaurant winter specials down south!  These will be sure to keep the belly warm, keep you insulated from the cold and won’t break the bank in the process.

Yes , one more thing to love in a Cape Town Winter.  Feel free to tweet photos enjoying your Winter Special meal. Use the hash-tag #CPRWinter on @CapePoint_Route.
