Old favorite restaurant of mine. Amazing lamb shanks. Warm ambiance. Nice interior. You have to prebook or else you might not get a table.

Best experience ! Wonderful wonderful food! French bistro style food in a lovely garden. My husband had duck liver parfait on toast with poached pears and I had a strawberry avo beetroot walnut and feta salad with a divine dressing. Then we had pork belly and chicken pie with lovely accompanying veg dishes. I will go back!

Just had lunch at Cafe Felix, which according to other reviews, is a superb place - must've been a 'off' day today. Poor service from the waitress, meal was supposed to be served with wedges, I received cold unappetizing chips, with no apologies. Two meals advertised on the menu board not available, but the waitress did not cross it off.... More

Had a lunch and an evening meal here and it is a great asset to Riebeek Kasteel: reliable, open, and serving tasty food. Of note the CHEESE CAKE is massive, but unmissable, classic, lemony stuff. The garden is delightful, and the staff take good care. Don't miss out!

Café Felix occupies a position that’s away from the hubbub of central Riebeek Kasteel on the R46 to Riebeek West. The outside space at the back is large and perfect for a leisurely lunch or dinner, without the tables being too close together. The menu is Mediterranean in influence and there were ample options for starters and mains, catering for... More

After walking around this little town on a hot summers day we looked for a place to have lunch. All the restaurants were rather crowded. And then we discovered Cafe Felix. What a great place! The beautiful courtyard under the trees with the sound of water drowning the sounds of the outside world was pure bliss! We opted for the... More

From the fire that greets you at the entrance of this well-rounded establishment to the moment you leave, Cafe Felix will make sure you have a smile on your face.I had an amazing lamb shank accompanied by some of the finest wines from the Cape Winelands and the now well-renowned Swartland. Unfortunately it was a bit windy so we decided... More

We held our Wedding reception on the 29 November 2016 at this amazing venue. Malcolm Bushell and his staff gave us a very good experience in terms of assistance with the setup of the venue, awesome food and breakfast for 20 of our guests the next morning. The accommodation was great the only regret being that the Honeymoon Suite had... More

This was a lovely stop. We enjoyed it very much and it had a great local feel. We were travelling from West Coast Paternoster. The food delicious. Will definitely be back again.

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.
