We stopped at Cafe Felix on our way back from a long weekend, and had a relaxed and delicious lunch. The service is a bit slow, but the food makes up for it. Highly recommend the fish, which was a kingklip, but my wife's pasta...More

The staff here were very unfriendly, barely greeted us as we arrived. There were only 4 options for breakfast which was very disappointing. Left after two minutes of being there. Overall: beautiful decor, but extremely unfriendly staff and barely any options for food. 👎🏻

If you want to throw your money away, this is the place to come. It's all frills and no food. What you get for what you pay is totally unbalanced. My advice ....Stay away.

We attended a wedding at Cafe Felix and Old Oak Manor, the venue was absolutely breathtaking, food was delicious and staff were friendly and efficient. Would love to have a function there myself in the future.

Stopped for lunch on the way from Montagu following a recommendation of our b&b hostess. Lovely garden setting and friendly staff. Try the fish cakes or pumpkin and cheese salad - very good.

We had lunch here and enjoyed a delicious salad of mango/figs/feta. The garden is very pleasant and has shaded areas. The service was very good.

I stopped here on the way to one of the vineyards with my brother and his family for lunch. The restaurant itself is like an old Dutch style farmhouse with a beautiful courtyard and gardens out the back. The service was fantastic and the servers...More

Cafe Felix is a beautiful French Provencal styled restaurant in the picturesque Riebeek Valley. Imagine peaceful, lazy afternoons, sipping ice-cold wine under graceful 200 year old oak trees, eating sumptuous fresh country cuisine with a hint of French country music gently playing in the background. Every now and then, the ever-smiling Host extraordinaire, Malcolm, will check on you to see that everything is as it should be. That is Cafe Felix. A little piece of heaven nestled in the exquisite Riebeek Valley, filled with olive groves and rambling vineyards, and surrounded by awe-inspiring mountains. Only 50 minutes from Cape Town, you could be there and back in a day, but rest assured you will return wonderfully fed, completely relaxed and your life enriched.
