More info about Gardens

Gardens is a vibrant and buzzing area close to Cape Town CBD, located beneath Table Mountain and Lions Head. It’s central position makes it an ideal hangout for young professionals, especially those in creative industries. There are a number of production and publishing companies located in the area. It is also a stone’s throw away from Cape Town’s various museums and galleries. 

Gardens is named due to its close proximity to the Company Gardens in the CBD. Once used to grow fresh produce, the Company Gardens is now a park and heritage site. 

 

Things to do

The Iziko South African Museum, situated in the Company Gardens, is home to more than one and a half million specimens of scientific importance. The collections range from fossils to ancient stone tools, as well as San rock paintings. Millions of people have wandered the halls of this museum marvelling at its fascinating finds. 

Another exciting activity housed inside the South African Museum, is the Iziko Planetarium. Lay back and relax while you take in the sounds, lights and cutting edge technology of the Planetarium. A perfect outing for families who wanted to be transported straight into space.

Culture lovers will also be pleased to find the South African National Gallery in close proximity to the South African Museum. With collections of South African, British, French, Dutch and Flemish art the SA National Gallery is South Africa’s leading art gallery. The gallery also houses a variety of temporary visiting exhibitions. 

Long Street, Cape Town’s liveliest street, is situated just a short distance away from the centre of Gardens. Long Street is brimming with interesting antiques, quirky vintage clothing and funky restaurants and bars. 

Gardens Shopping Centre has everything on offer, from high end supermarkets and boutique clothing stores to arts and crafts stores. With its convenient location just uptown from the CBD, the Gardens Centre attracts locals and visitors with its bustling atmosphere.

Gardens is often referred to as 'Hipster Central'. This is thanks to the many quirky, hispter shops, restaurants, clothing stores and coffee shops found in Kloof Street. For anything speciality, whether it be food, coffee, clothes or art, Kloof Street is the place to go.

 

Where to eat

You will find the Company Gardens Restaurant nestled beneath the trees in the Company Gardens. The tranquil atmosphere makes it the perfect spot for a relaxing family lunch. The restaurant offers a selection of light meals and teatime snacks, from early morning until late afternoon.

For some real South African flavour, try Gourmet Boerie who create their one of a kind gourmet boerewors rolls. They specialise in local handcrafted artisanal boerewors, served up in a roll with a range of delicious toppings. Boerewors rolls are known as one of South Africa’s favourite street foods.

For candlelit dinners, try the trendy Kloof Street House, set in a magnificent Victorian House on Kloof Street. It is both a restaurant and bar. Kloof Street House has a homely feel and a bistro style menu, with a Mediterranean and Moroccan influence. 

Well known for its delicious all day breakfasts, as well as their lunch and dinner specials, it’s no wonder Arnolds on Kloof draws in the locals. Arnold's is also known for Game dishes, such as Crocodile Ribs, Warthog Ribs, Springbok and Gemsbok.

Set in Cape Town’s spectacular Mount Nelson Hotel, Planet Bar and Restaurant offers a magnificent fine dining experience. The venue is chic and contemporary, making it the ideal spot for elegant pre-dinner champagne or cocktails. 

Pure Good is great for a quick and healthy meal when you're on the go. Wholewheat-herbed wraps, salads, smoothies and raw juices are just a few items on this fun, yet health conscious menu.

For truly artisinal coffee, as well as tasty freshly baked treats, pay a visit to Truth Coffee. Here you'll be transported into a SteamPunk world with both the decor and the staff bringing the theme to life. The coffee itself is considered some of the best in Cape Town!

About Self Catering

Self Catering places can be found from rural to urban areas and can vary in what they offer. They allow plenty freedom and is a great inexpensive way to spend your holiday. They have been widely classified as a “Home away from home”. This is a good option for guests who don’t mind cooking their own food, and are looking for a more independent and flexible form of accommodation. For budget and large families, we would recommend self-catering for a more personalised experience.
