Take advantage of the 2-for-1 dinner special, hosted on Monday, where you get two Sirloin steak meals that come with chips and a house salad for R218.You can also treat your significant other to the love-inspired affair HQ has on a weekly basis.Though it’s a well-known fact that Cape Town swoons visitors from around the world, the Mother City, with her splendid natural beauty, also happens to be a prime place to fall in love.With trendy eateries, intimate bars and scenic wine estates on every corner and a plethora of fun, innovative activities at every turn, Cape Town is chock-a-block with great options for a memorable romantic rendezvous, whether it’s a first date or a 50th anniversary.Should you decide to go the simpler route and recruit The Picnic Company to prepare your meal for you, consider opting for their Mezze Picnic (think Mediterranean finger foods like dolmades, pitas and nougat bites) or Afternoon Tea Picnic (it includes cucumber and smoked trout sandwiches, freshly baked scones and more), both of which are specifically designed for two.
You won’t find any bastardised pizzas or imitation pastas (think spaghetti bolognaise) on the blackboard; rather, you can expect antipasta platters piled high with imported meats and cheeses, handmade pasta fresca (fresh pasta), homemade Sicilian sausage, Campari cocktails, short espressos and desserts freshly baked according to long-standing family recipes.
Book your seats on one of the following: a scheduled tour that visits five wine estates in and around Stellenbosch; the whale, wine and wors adventure along Hermanus and the Elgin Valley; the journey through the Forgotten Route in Matjiesfontein.
If you want something a bit more intimate you can plan a private tour for just you and your special someone.
Explore the Western Cape with your sweetheart, using the picturesque region as the backdrop to your love story.
It would be impossible not to have your significant other swooning after spending the day amongst the rolling hills, perfectly manicured pastures, budding vines and balmy weather of the Winelands.
Imported Italian wine completes the intimate A-Z Italian experience, and as this space is modeled on the unfussy, laidback restaurants found in historic Italian city centres, you don’t need to worry about dinner being too pretentious.
