COVID-19: Western Cape restaurants offering dine-at-home options

Since the first case of COVID-19 was reported in South Africa, many restaurants have taken to social media to announce their plans going forward. Whether temporarily closing or taking measures to serve customers curbside only or via a hatch, restaurants are doing what they can to assist in flattening the curve. The latest development amongst local chefs and their establishments is to launch dine-in options and homemade family meals, with chefs and restaurateurs taking orders via Whatsapp, email or direct messaging.

Offering takeaways or food deliveries? Let us know what you’re doing or what your favourite restaurant is doing.

We’ll be updating it regularly, so check back to see what your favourite spot is offering.
