Claims to be vegetarian friendly but with only a single underwhelming pasta dish for non-meat eaters.

We came here for our 1 year wedding anniversary and had such a divine evening. I had the beef fillet (so generous and delicious) and hubby was in heaven for the Pork Belly. Will be back soon!

A busy bistro style restaurant with main seating under the trees, though seating uncomfortable. Good ambience, average food was overpriced. On the day service was friendly but erratic. Cheesecake was good.

Description
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.
