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.

On 3 Aug '13 our wine club (18 persons) had a set dinner at Cafe Felix in Riebeek Kasteel. We met Malcolm Bushell a month before to make arrangements for our dinner. However Malcolm was so fully booked over weekends that we had to move the date of our visit to Riebeek Kasteel as there was no other restaurant of... More

The 2 course meal we had on Saturday night the 10th August 2013 was simply sublime...the Lamb Shank is worth a trip to have as a meal with Riebeek Kasteel only 45 minutes out of Blouberg. The service was excellent, friendly, efficient. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occassion.

We could not fault the food, even if we tried. It was simply outstanding. The staff were all so very cheerful, and treated you like they had met you before. I seldom eat 3 courses, but I did and would have eaten 4 if there was a 4th one. I stay in Cape Town, but am planning on making many... More

Stunning little restaurant, with wonderful decor and delicious food. Service is very good and one feels very welcomed. It is also a great venue for an intimate wedding.

Some delicious food is served at this fine establishment. Probably the best place to dine in the town of Riebeek Kasteel. They serve up some yummy farm food (lamb stew, leg of lamb, chicken pie etc) and you won't go hungry either - hearty portion sizes. Lovely wine list on offer to accompany your meal. Service with a smile. Well... More

From the minute we arrived at Old Oak Manor (Cafe Felkix) we were made very welcome by the professional ladies that run the restaurant.We were shown to our our own little cottage, tucked away in the back garden. Old school charm and friendly service is the only thing you will get at this establishment run by Malcom Bushell, the Manager... More
