    Incredible art and history, a must see. Don't forget the museum on the 4th floor, so much to see. The Eye Witness on the top floor blew me away.

    A must for art lovers. South African and African art. At present a collection of paintings by, inter alia, Alex Preller. Three galaries, a library, outdoor garden exibition and good restaurant. Beautiful setting in the Steenberg wetland. Architectural delight.

    I had never bought a piece of "real art" before and was quite nervous about taking this step, especially with a gallery on a different continent (I live in the US.) All my interaction with the Christopher Moller Gallery was a pleasure. I cannot say enough kind words about Mr. Moller himself and Mr. Claasen, who arranged all the logistics for shipping insuring, and payment of my unbelievable acquisition of an Ablade Glover painting. Both of them were encouraging, patient with my many questions, humorous and a joy to work with. This was all in all a wonderful experience.

    I just adore Jennifer!! She supports local artists and curates each show to perfection.
    One of the best art galleries in Cape Town to visit. Also features a fantastic online website to purchase art.

    I have known Martin and Sam for over 10 years now and my home in the UK features many of their stunning work. A gallery can only show a Ltd representation so I would strongly suggest to visit their work online and pick out pieces that may be of interest. Martin is extremely accommodating and he will endeavour to have them ready for your visit. In saying that he also has some pieces in the gallery that are simply magnificent - my latest visit resulted in several purchases that I hadn’t planned for!.
    They're both thoroughly professional in their knowledge of their profession and are accommodating in tailoring either bespoke commissions or tweaking something you like to your desire. They’re also supporting the local economy and community in what they do and should be applauded for that as well as the incredible pieces that they exhibit. Well worth a visit if you’re serious about enhancing your home, collection or just like art.

    What a pleasure to visit the art gallery! Ever changing art galore! The restaurant - a haven with deliciously prepared foods. Fresh muffins in the morning, mean breakfasts and yummy cakes! A must visit!

    An easily located gallery in the heart of Cape Town's city, showcasing a wide range of African contemporary works. The gallery owner, Barbara, was eager to introduce me to the pieces and I left feeling really inspired by the collection and local South African talent.

    Beautiful art in a beautiful neighborhood!! Very small but packs a punch with the beautiful art that they have. If you're looking for pieces of history and culture this is the place. The artwork was phenomenal. Also got a chance to see the artist creating more beauty while there.

    An amazing collection of old books. A real treasure storehouse... though rather overpriced for a bargain-hunter.

    Spent about 2 impromptu hours visiting with Paul. The guy has some serious talent, but he won't admit it. I was at Etosha and his paintings of the park and its wildlife are spot on. He's approachable, interesting and has a cool brown dog. Go to Simon's Town, see the penguins then stop and see Paul.

    I have visited Maik's interesting fine selection of works a couple of times, always greeted with a welcoming smile and a offer of coffee. Maik's eye and knowledge for investment art have always impressed me, how he is able to spot the next generation of investment artists. The South African art industry need more such refreshingly honest curator/ art collectors. I'm proud to be associated with such a curator/ space!

    This fine gallery is a must for anyone interested in quality art. The prints, paintings, jewellery, metal work etc. are of an exceptionally high standard.
    Spend some time (and have some money ready) as this is a collection of works by extremely talented people which shouldn't be missed by anyone visiting the Cape, let alone Kalk Bay!

    A nice find. This non-profit art and craft space is nestled amongst beautiful trees. Here you will find a quaint cafe featuring it's cakes. There is also a gift shop with amazing items. Stop for a coffee and sit among the trees.
