When the Dutch settlers sailed around the coastline in 1652, they discovered the lush forested valley of Hout Bay. They named the bay ‘hout’ a Dutch term for ‘wood’. The valley of Hout Bay subsequently grew into a vibrant fishing harbour and a cosmopolitan sea-side village whilst retaining its community allure.
Located 20kms from Cape Town, Hout Bay is affectionately known as ‘the Republic’ by the locals. The picturesque village is a colourful playground offering something for everyone, any day of the week.
These are our Top 10 local picks:
One of the local’s most loved restaurants offering authentic Italian cuisine. Massimos is located at the Oakhurst Farm Centre and is a family-run restaurant. Massimo is from Piemonte in Northern Italy and Tracy from Liverpool. They both fell in love with Cape Town and decided to bring their passion for food here. With the full range of pizza and pasta on offer, they include options for Vegans and banting. We love them even more because they use free-range and hormone-free products, responsibly sourced fish and biodegradable packaging products.
