Five Fabulous Restaurants near Llandudno

The dreamy, ocean-fronting suburb of Llandudno may be small and somewhat tucked away – but it’s a true Cape Peninsula gem all the same.

Without the mild snottiness of Camps Bay or Clifton, this beautiful suburb has it all: peace and quiet, a gorgeous beach and of course, close proximity to important Cape Town attractions like Lion’s Head, Camps Bay Beach, Hout Bay, Table Mountain and even the CBD.

So whether you’re visiting for the day or staying over, here are five wonderful eateries to visit just a stone’s throw away from lovely Llandudno:

#1 Suikerbossie Restaurant & Estate

Suikerbossie may be a famous wedding venue – but this beautiful estate, which is flanked on the west by Llandudno’s own beach, offers some incredible food too!

During the working week (except on Mondays, when the restaurant is closed), there is a lovely a la carte menu available – but it’s undoubtedly the Sunday buffet that has everyone scrambling for a table.

On Sundays and public holidays, visitors can expect to tuck into either a breakfast or lunch buffet of note and enjoy soaking up the sensational views and interiors of this classy establishment.

Whenever you choose to visit, you can’t go wrong with Suikerbossie’s charming restaurant.

Please note:  The restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and tea – and prior booking is essential.
