A couple of weekends ago, we were very lucky to be hosted for a night at The Hout Bay Manor.
With my girls already at granny and hubby and I starving (as we had been so busy working that we kind of skipped lunch), we decided to go to Beau Constantia as I have been wanting to go for ages. With it being just a few minutes drive from the Hout Bay Manor it was the perfect place to go for a snack and drink before heading for our night away.
Unfortunately it was a bit chilly so we sat inside but with glass doors all around, you still have breathtaking views of the winelands and mountain. This is a really special place. I love the natural feeling of the wooden facade that greets you as you enter and coupled with the view, just makes it exceptionally beautiful.
The Sushi Box has set up residence here and runs the food side of things. It is not a dinner place but more of a snack/drinks kind of place. The menu has sushi and tapas meals to keep you well fed. It is the perfect place in summer for romantic sundowners. And would also be good for a stormy winter’s day as well as I spotted a fire place inside.
We ordered the Peking Duck Spring Rolls, the Rose Bouquet, the Panko Prawns and just because we couldn’t resist eating more, after all that we also ordered the Moroccan Tagine with Harissa Flatbread. Everything was delicious, good portions and reasonably priced. For wine, we shared a carafe of their own Pas De Nom 2015. I really am no wine conniseur so I won’t even embarrass myself by attempting to describe it but it was a lovely easy drinking wine and I thoroughly enjoyed it. (I quickly took a pic before stuffing our faces ;))
Only after our meal, having a bit more of a look around, did I feast my eyes on these beautiful beds, known as the Beau Constantia beds, where one can lie down, drink wine, eat, admire the view and have the ultimate romantic time together.
This is truly a hidden gem in Cape Town and really makes for the ultimate Date Night together. I can not wait to return as I picture ourselves lying on those beds, sipping our wine, eating to our hearts content and admiring the beautiful landscape in front of us. How good does that sound???
Well, thanks to the awesomeness of Beau Constantia, I have a great giveaway for you! (This giveaway is CLOSED)
