Known for its exceptional natural beauty, Cape Town is surprisingly short on restaurants with killer views: The Roundhouse is helping to close that gap. Converted from its origins as an 18th-century Table Mountain–side hunting lodge, this unique fine-dining restaurant overlooking Camps Bay specializes in creative and surprising flavor combinations—think mussels with oak-smoked butter and kombu gel—served by an excellent and exceptionally suave team of waiters. The
Somerset Room offers sea views but can be noisy. The adjacent "Rumbullion" picnic area, from which diners can enjoy breathtaking mountain and sea views, serves a more casual burger-and-pizza style menu and is an excellent place to while away a summer afternoon. Opening hours vary with season, so it's best to call and check.
