We got married at Cafe Felix and it was an absolutely brilliant occasion. The venue is intimate, the food is outstanding and Malcolm and his team are friendly and hard-working. There is also luxury accommodation for the wedding party a stones throw away from the reception venue, which was an added bonus. We are extremely happy we chose Cafe Felix... More

If you want to throw your money away, this is the place to come. It's all frills and no food. What you get for what you pay is totally unbalanced. My advice ....Stay away.

We attended a wedding at Cafe Felix and Old Oak Manor, the venue was absolutely breathtaking, food was delicious and staff were friendly and efficient. Would love to have a function there myself in the future.

Stopped for lunch on the way from Montagu following a recommendation of our b&b hostess. Lovely garden setting and friendly staff. Try the fish cakes or pumpkin and cheese salad - very good.

We had lunch here and enjoyed a delicious salad of mango/figs/feta. The garden is very pleasant and has shaded areas. The service was very good.

I stopped here on the way to one of the vineyards with my brother and his family for lunch. The restaurant itself is like an old Dutch style farmhouse with a beautiful courtyard and gardens out the back. The service was fantastic and the servers were great with my brothers kids who decided to chase a parrot round the garden... More

Old favorite restaurant of mine. Amazing lamb shanks. Warm ambiance. Nice interior. You have to prebook or else you might not get a table.

Best experience ! Wonderful wonderful food! French bistro style food in a lovely garden. My husband had duck liver parfait on toast with poached pears and I had a strawberry avo beetroot walnut and feta salad with a divine dressing. Then we had pork belly and chicken pie with lovely accompanying veg dishes. I will go back!

Just had lunch at Cafe Felix, which according to other reviews, is a superb place - must've been a 'off' day today. Poor service from the waitress, meal was supposed to be served with wedges, I received cold unappetizing chips, with no apologies. Two meals advertised on the menu board not available, but the waitress did not cross it off.... More

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.
