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.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Great food beautifully presented. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Hand written menus are a little difficult to read. A good dining experience.

“Good food in a great setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

If you are planning a weekend away in Riebeek Kasteel, I cannot recommend you more to have a lunch or dinner at Cafe Felix. Their outdoor seating is superb, under huge trees with a little fontain and fish pond on the side.
The wine list is quite representative of the locally produced wines which are quite good and renowned. The food is also excellent (try their beef fillet or their lamb cutlets) and the service perfect. Sadly, their dessert list is a bit restricted and could be a bit more imaginative.
Overall, a very good experience.

What a delightful restaurant in a beautiful, tranquil setting! Foodwise excellent - breakfast, lunch and dinner! How wonderful to find the service equally excellent. Wide awake, super efficient ladies to welcome, help and serve! Special thanks to Valentia for making our experience so special and to Bernie for the delicious food!
