Went to Grub and Vine for lunch on our last day in Cape Town. An outstanding meal great wine list and lovely staff. Matt Manning and his small team produce seasonal cuisine with flawless classical French technique. The salt baked celeriac and roasted apple was a highlight, fish perfectly also. The menu is tightly put together and carefully judged. The perfect French bistro on Bree Street!

Well worth the climb up a steep set of stairs. Situated in Cape Town city centre, overlooking trendy Bree street, Grub & Vine has an exciting menu with attention to detail. Presentation of food is beautiful, flavours well balanced and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Excellent background music, thoroughly enjoyed being a guest in this restaurant . A very modern restaurant with good old fashioned heart.

Charming 1st floor bistro overlooking Bree St. The place was buzzing, the service seamless and we were able to get on and enjoy the grub and chat. There was a little theatre, nice presentation and plenty of flavour in the dishes, and a nice hello/dish intro from Chef Matt to boot.

The food is amazing, the atmosphere in the front is bustling but the green room at the back is a little more romantic if that’s what you looking for! Brave it, and ask the sommelier for his choice of wines to pair - you won’t be disappointed.

Understated, relaxed - yet absolutely top notch!
