Know your neighbourhood - City bowl Cape Town

The Cape Town city bowl is a dynamic, cosmopolitan area that’s perfect for work, play and daily living. Here’s what you can look forward to as a resident of town.

The city bowl in Cape Town is the heart of the city in every sense. From world-class dining and exciting nightlife to coffee shops and amazing green spaces, the CBD is the ultimate place to live, work and play.

Propstats for 2017 show that one property is sold every day in the City Bowl, with an increase in demand for luxury units. The sectional title market alone reached a ground-breaking R1 billion which reflects the trend in secure and convenient living. 

If you’re a new CBD resident or are thinking of moving to town, we’d love to be your tour guide. Here are some of the highlights of calling the city bowl home.

Endless dining options

Some of us love our organic, grain-fed designer beef burgers. For others, it’s master-crafted sushi or Eastern cooking with an explosion of flavour that gets the taste buds excited.


Whatever kind of dining you’re into, the city bowl’s world-class restaurants are ready to satisfy your appetite.

  • The Company’s Gardens Restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy good weather and great food - right in the CBD’s greenest district. This slick casual dining spot is a hit with tourists and locals alike.
  • The Twankey Bar and Mint Restaurant at the Taj on Wale Street are some of the city’s most popular fine dining options - with oysters on ice.
  • La Parada on Bree street (opposite Chris Barnard hospital) draws Tapas fans from all over the city. Enjoy a Spanish feast over a casual lunch or head there after work to unwind.
