We were guests at a wedding last Saturday and had a most enjoyable afternoon and evening at Cafe Felix. Catering concurrently for a large number of guests, even where food had been pre-selected, is not easy, but the food was good and tasty, and the...More

Highly recommend the bean and bacon soup as well as the lamb shank. Fish cakes were also delicious. Friendly and prompt service.

We had a delicious dinner of pan fried Yellowtail with crushed potatoes, young btocolli and a creamy sauce. Great setting inside or out. Spacious, tables not crammed against one another. Lovely decor. Friendly.

The staff here were very unfriendly, barely greeted us as we arrived. There were only 4 options for breakfast which was very disappointing. Left after two minutes of being there. Overall: beautiful decor, but extremely unfriendly staff and barely any options for food. 👎🏻

Description
Cafe Felix is a beautiful French Provencal styled restaurant in the picturesque Riebeek Valley. Imagine peaceful, lazy afternoons, sipping ice-cold wine under graceful 200 year old oak trees, eating sumptuous fresh country cuisine with a hint of French country music gently playing in the background. Every now and then, the ever-smiling Host extraordinaire, Malcolm, will check on you to see that everything is as it should be. That is Cafe Felix. A little piece of heaven nestled in the exquisite Riebeek Valley, filled with olive groves and rambling vineyards, and surrounded by awe-inspiring mountains. Only 50 minutes from Cape Town, you could be there and back in a day, but rest assured you will return wonderfully fed, completely relaxed and your life enriched.
