Add that South African restaurants like La Colombe and Le Quartier Francais featured in the S.Pellegrino The World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards, and Rust and Vrede the best 100, and you’ve lots of great dining to look forward to when you visit South Africa.

With the intention of helping you to experience as many South African culinary delights as possible, a team of expert local foodies have put together 2 indispensible guides for gallivanting gastronomes.

Eat Out is a pocketsize restaurant guide covering 300 of the best restaurants, from 5-star fine dining to authentic local eateries, in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, Cape Town, and the Cape winelands.

The companion publication, Eat In, is a directory of 300 of the best delis, farmers markets, food stores, farm stalls, bakeries, patisseries, and grocers. Who doesn’t want to know where to seek out the best local produce while touring Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, Cape Town, and the Cape winelands?

The Eat In directory is also useful to know where to shop if you prefer to assemble your own gourmet picnics.

Before you groan, ‘oh, not another guidebook’, the guides are compact (140 x 100mm) and lightweight, with easy-reference restaurant listings by region and full contact details.

Best of all, the guides are never offline or dependent on internet connectivity, so you won’t drive past Woodstock, for example, and miss the best food market in Cape Town.

Available at major bookstores, and online, at R85, the Eat Out and Eat In are your guides to delicious food adventures in South Africa.
