Exquisite Dining at The 41 Restaurant, Camps Bay


The 41, celebrating contemporary cuisine and the coming together of friends, is one of Camps Bay’s most irresistible restaurants. Having opened in the stunning suburb of Camps Bay in October 2016, The 41 Restaurant has already welcomed guests from all walks of life and is considered by many to be a favourite restaurant. Breathtaking and uninterrupted views of the ever famous sunset strip, Camps Bay beach, and the deep blue Atlantic Ocean are on full display, so consider bringing your camera along and maybe even capture a few sneaky photos of the very ‘instagramable’ dishes.

With its trendy and inviting indoor and outdoor dining areas, spectacular location and inspired drink and food menus, the success of The 41 restaurant is clearly the result of passionate industry professionals with a penchant for the finer things in life, as well as the tastiest… It is easy to see why owners Giles and Nicolas first fell in love with the space, even relocating to Cape Town to bring their vision to life and apply themselves in the day to day running and management of The 41 restaurant.

The 41 Menu

The standard of each dish served at The 41 Restaurant is said to be extraordinary, which comes as no surprise after learning more about the head chef, Aristotle Ragavelas, who is something of a legend in (and out of) the kitchen and a truly remarkable chef. In addition to training in the Michelen-Starred Spondi restaurant in Athens and heading up kitchens in Mykonos and the Greek Alps, Aristotle has also been an established head chef in the kitchens of world-class restaurants like Byzance in Johannesburg and Raggafellows in Hout Bay (which he also co-owns). The 41 Restaurant’s versatile food menu is influenced by international flavours that showcase the best local produce and ingredients.

We love that the diverse menu is suited to all tastes and occasions. Various options include seafood, burgers, pizza and sushi. The 41’s Signature Dish is the Ostrich, paired beautifully with a scrumptious Chakalaka salsa, Phutu maize pap and Atchaar Yoghurt. Other favourite dishes include the Kataifi Prawns and Pork Ribs, all featured on the restaurant’s Summer Menu. The 41 also serves breakfasts over the weekend between the hours of 9 am and 11:30 am, perfect for those early morning risers enjoying their luxury holiday in Cape Town and getting a head-start to a day of discovery. Keeping things interesting, the already comprehensive 41 menu features 3 new and inspired dishes every day, to indulge diners who have a sense of adventure.
