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.

“After traveling around the Cape sampling...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2010

After traveling around the Cape sampling diferent restaurants, we came across this little slice of Heaven. Placed neatly near to the end of Riebeek Kasteel, Cafe Felix and Old Oak Manor have an amazing atmosphere, we felt incredibly welcomed as the owner greeted us, and took us to a fabulous room quaint with an amazing feel.

We settled in and went for dinner at Cafe Felix. Well what can i say wine selection and food was exquisite. The food was perfectly portioned, enough for anyone, and it tasted out of this world.

I would recomend this restaurant to anyone, in fact I already do, go there it will be awsome I promise.

“Could do better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2010

Have been to Cafe Felix twice. Both times they under delivered slightly.
The setting is beautiful, French looking garden with water feature etc. The food....well leaves a bit to be desired. The first time i was there was on a first date...i found a hair in my burger ! but didn't say anything as it was a first date :)
the second time round the food was good , just portion wise slightly small. the service however was very slow. Might go back for drinks and perhaps try them again if this constructive criticism is taken on board.

“Charming Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2010

We spent a night in the old manor and ate in Cafe Felix. The Guest House is charming and quiet. We stayed the night on the way from Paternoster to Franschoek. Dinner in Cafe Felix was tasty and good value.
