The Pot Luck Club is situated on the topfloor of the Silo of the Old Biscuit Mill on Albert Road, Woodstock opened on Valentine’s Day in 2013.

It has been dubbed the coolest place to be in Cape Town and its success is based on innovative cuisine, served in a relaxed yet edgy environment in a part of Cape Town that has never attracted an evening dining crowd.

Times: Bookings open on the 1st of each month at 8.30am South African time for the following month.

Place: 373 Albert Rd, Woodstock, Cape Town, 7915

Casual Tuesday night

A post shared by Ewald Botha (@ewaldbotha) on

This Vietnamese eatery pulls inspiration from Japanese food as well, and offers diners incredible views of both Gardens and Table Mountain.

According to Dining-Out, the Vietnamese decor is done elegantly without giving the restaurant a themed feeling. Some of the more popular main courses are the Chicken Cashew Nuts, their Spicy Beef Basil with chilli sauce and the Saigon Ginger Fish covered in a batter.

Time: Monday – Sunday: 12pm – 10.30pm

Place: Kloof St, Gardens, Cape Town, 8001
