We visited Savoy cabbage for dinner whilst staying in Cape Town. We chose it for its proximity to our hotel (10 min walk) as well as the unusual sounding menu (I had never eaten warthog, zebra, springbok or kudu!) and interesting design. We were very...More

Located in the same building as our hotel (Cape Heritage - highly recommended) - reservations suggested. Casual dress. Nice space. We sat on the second floor terrace. Small but adequate and seasonally changing menu. Seafood and native game (impala, etc.). Good wine list. We thoroughly...More
