Roxy Louw’s favourite restaurants

Surfer-turned-model-and-actress Roxy Louw is a self-confessed foodie and proponent of healthy, nutritious food. We asked the Sports Illustrated model to share her favourite restaurants in Cape Town and the winelands for both healthy – and not so healthy – eating.

My favourite:


Bertus Basson of Overture. The food is always so tasty and beautifully presented.

Indian food

Himalayan Asian Restaurant at the Durbanville Palmgrove Centre… it’s a hidden gem.

A great view

Ellerman House in Bantry Bay. What beats Cape Town’s sunset overlooking the water? It’s truly magnificent – along with the fantastic wine collection!

A lazy Saturday morning brunch

Root 44 Market on Audacia Farm. There is chilled live music and food stands with fresh farm produce – it’s always festive and fun.

Sunday lunch with the family

The Goatshed Restaurant on the Fairview farm in Paarl. I love the atmosphere and all the different things to do on the farm. From the goats to cheese and wine tasting, chocolate tasting and beer pairing… There is always something new on the farm to explore.

Weeknight dinner with friends

Beluga, Green Point. The management is always fantastic. I love the energy there.

A romantic dinner

Tintswalo Atlantic – it’s so secluded and beautiful.

My guilty pleasure

A meal at Burrata: rib-eye on the bone, followed by chocolate fondant accompanied by a bottle of Anthonij Rupert Optima.

Beluga in Green Point has great service and I can customize my own rice-free rolls. Plus there’s half-price sushi and cocktails all day until 7pm.

Recipe book

Jan Braai’s recipe book… I love to braai!

Mexican food

El Burro is always fun and festive, with the tequila bar below (Cabrito).


Hudson’s on Somerset, Green Point. You can drop the bun and have your patty on a bed of lettuce. The chilli poppers are a winner too.

Homecooked-style dinner

The Duchess of Wisbeach in Sea Point is a hidden gem.
