But don’t forget about the food too; Two Oceans Restaurant serves delicious seafood with spectacular views!

Explore Groot Constantia Wine Estate

If you’re looking for an interesting date idea this Valentine’s Day, then Groot Constantia should be on your bucket list! Groot Constantia is a beautiful Wine Estate in Cape Town known for its history of producing award-winning wines. The Estate offers wine and chocolate tastings where you can taste the wine made on-site. You can also join Simon’s Restaurant this Valentine’s Day for a picnic date or book a leisurely lunch or romantic dinner at Jonkershuis.

Try out Table Mountain Cableway’s highly-rated restaurants.

If you’re looking for a non-traditional way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, Table Mountain is an ideal spot. With its amazing views and restaurants that serve up delicious food, it’s no wonder why this iconic landmark is one of the most popular places in Cape Town.

If you want something special with your significant other but don’t want to go too far out of your comfort zone, take them on an unforgettable trip up Table Mountain via cableway! Once at the top, enjoy an exquisite meal at one of these highly rated restaurants: Ten67 Eatery — serving up quick eats to hearty meals and desserts or VIEWS by De Grendel Wines — serving up a premium wine experience.

Spend an afternoon having a picnic with BAE at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden.

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon picnic with BAE. If you want to take your romantic picnic to the next level, make sure to check out the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts! If picnics and live music aren’t your style, then Moyo, Kirstenbosch Tea Room or Vide e Caffè might tickle your fancy even more.

Visit V&A Waterfront to show your love.

If you want to show your love for art, leisure, food or your special someone this month of love, then visit V&A Waterfront. The V&A Waterfront is great for date night, offering something for every taste and budget. With special gifts and memories to be made this February, you’ll find a way to share your love for your soulmate, soul sister, or best friend at the V&A Waterfront.

Treat your partner to a trip to Robben Island Museum.

Robben Island Museum is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most visited tourist attractions in Cape Town. It’s also home to one of the most notorious prisons in South Africa. The Robben Island Museum offers guided bus tours around the island, allowing you to see where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years as well as many other famous prisoners like Steve Biko and Robert Sobukwe. If your partner is interested in learning more about South African history or even just wants something cool from Robben Island Museum’s memorabilia shop, then this can be an excellent option for a date!

We hope we’ve inspired you to celebrate love this month. Whether it’s with your partner, family or friends, there are so many ways to show how much they mean to you and make them feel special with the Cape Town Big 6 — making this February that much more sentimental.
