We went for dinner in late November 2012 during a great SW wind storm with our six year old. Our first time in Cape Town and at Cafe Paradisio. We were unable to see the lovely garden or the views as it was after sunset and the wind was "epic", but the dining rooms were warm and inviting in a very well done Italian rustic style. We had a fantastically professional and warm server who was also quite helpful in directing us to some dining options in Stellenboch later in the week. The mostly Mediterranian style food was well executed, comforting and fresh without being overly fussy or ambituous--just what we wanted. Wine options were delicious. Best of all was the kids option to make pizza in the bakery so that my husband and I could enjoy some private time together. Pizza experience was a resounding success and my husband and I wished that other restaurants would offer the same. The pizza was actually super yummy and not just a half hearted attempt to entertain. Wish we had been able to return and will when we get back to Cape Town. Hopefully, very soon! Highly recommended.
