years of experience

two decades of excellence

At Cape to Cuba you won’t just have an amazing time, but you’ll also get to experience the history and beauty that come from real experience.

La Familia

To fully appreciate the magic of our creations, one must understand the concept of controversy. The Van Vuuren family will take you where reality ends and myth begins. Usually inspired at Sunday lunch they feed off each other with creative ideas that never stop flowing.

Deona with her definitive opinion and eye for style. The twins, Kim and Morne have a gift for seductive yet uncomplicated design for interiors Young Bart, the talented artist and creator of mind blowing concepts is the one that always transforms their grand schemes into reality. And Bart Snr, the epitome of “boerecool”, take a back seat in all of this only to cast his admiring eye over completed projects.

Walking through any of their businesses is much like walking on the wild side into a thing of beauty where all their magical ideas is transformed into a space where you always wanted to be. Start your journey at Sobeit Store in Muizenberg, then on to the Co-op in Kalk Bay and then retire at Cape to Cuba with one of our legendary cocktails.

We love our patrons

"Love the atmosphere here and the view is amazing! The difference types of seating also adds to the vibe of the place and it attracts a fun, down to earth but respectable crowd. Food was good and staff were helpful. It's also a huge plus to know that your car is safe under the watch of the car guard who has been there for a while and is known by most of the locals. I'm looking forward to enjoying cocktails here in the summer holidays!"
"An absolutely stunning setting right on the waterfront, with exceptional service and divine food. Go there for a cocktail or some tapas or a meal that will be memorable. The food was excellently prepared and really delicious. Enjoy a cigar or and a whisky to round off your visit. Did not order their deserts which looked to be super tasty. Will be back."
"Wonderful food, great service, lovely view if you're sitting on the patio or next to the windows. It's such a great experience and imaginary peek into a different world, I highly recommend it. Book if you can, to secure your ideal table, or show up a little earlier and explore the different sections of this interesting eatery. There are dishes on the menu you won't find elsewhere, so make sure you pick something new, because we all tried something different and every one of us raved about the delicious combinations of flavours and textures. Yum!!"

"What an amazing place. It really feels like you're in Cuba. Decor is stunning, music is perfect. Service was great, cocktails were amazing. The ribs were mouth watering, fantastic Chilli poppers and Cuban bread. There is a beach bar next to the restaurant which is a great chill out spot too! Definitely will return"
