My husband and I came here with our guide after hiking Table Mountain. The location was great, their patio was wicked cute, and food was fantastic! It was our favorite spot we ate at in Cape Town.

I love cafe paradiso because of the kids stations. They can decorate cupcakes, make cookies and pizza! It's a real treat for the kids when they also get to enjoy going out to a restaurant.

Outdoor and indoor seating. Food decent - kids enjoyed their chicken pesto. Belly pork a tad dry. Probs better places in Cape Town no doubt, but as a casual place for lunch it was fine.

They had lots of kids activities inside. No reason to think that Sunday would be excluded, but don't know for sure.

Established by the inimitable Freda, Cafè Paradiso immediately set the bar for local cuisine and, from its inception, introduced us to a variety of dishes and ingredients seldom before experienced locally. Loving the idyllic setting and the warm ambience, Capetonians eagerly tucked into exotic and ‘foreign’ fare such as tzatziki, dolmades and babaganoush as well as the delicious country-style dishes which emanated from Paradiso’s bustling kitchens. Joined by three more formidable women, Laurille, Lynn and Mapula, Frieda and her team remained the heart of city trading with a lineage of values forming the foundation of this amazing establishment.
