Lookbook: When in Hout Bay

Lookbook: When in Hout Bay

When in Hout Bay, one must go to Mariners for lunch, stroll along the windy beach and take photos! On my second day in Cape Town we went to have lunch at Mariners, always a great place to go for fresh seafood, whether you’re in a hurry and only have 30min or you have the whole day to spend there. Of course I couldn’t miss an opportunity to take some photos! That day was particularly windy, I never really thought that eating a mouth full of hair was an option. 🙂 Hope you enjoy the photos anyway!

Hidden Valley Overture Restaurant Review

Hidden Valley Overture Restaurant Review

Happy Monday my loves! Where did the first two months of this year go?? I cannot believe how quickly this year is going and now we’re in March already! It’s my birthday month and since my birthday is at the end of the month, I generally do something throughout the month to celebrate my birthday and spoil myself a little (live every birthday like it’s your last) 🙂 I keep changing my mind about what I want to do on my actual birthday, initially E and I were going to go overseas for my birthday but now work (duty) calls so we might not be able to go so early for our trip! I’m not too sad though because I’ve been away for almost a month and I felt so home sick and I missed my bed so much!

While we were in Cape Town last month, we paid a little day visit to Hidden Valley Wine Estate and to my (favourite) restaurant Overture. E and I discovered this restaurant almost 4 years ago when he took me there for our 1 year anniversary and I absolutely loved it. Since then, we try to go every time we are in Cape Town. The menu is different every time we go and the wine pairing is just stunning. It honestly feels like a private dining experience even though when you are there, the restaurant is likely to be full or busy. The staff are very attentive, the food is always gorgeous and colourful and the view is just breathtaking. We took some photos of the food and the restaurant itself, and took photos for a lookbook post but I’ll leave that to another post later this week. 🙂

(I was so excited to start eating my food, I forgot to take pictures of my starter)

Hope you enjoyed the photos and if you’re in Cape Town or the Western Cape, I definitely recommend this restaurant!
