Established in 2006, café Roux, in the popular Noordhoek Farm Village below Chapman’s Peak, is the hub of the South Peninsula community. What began as a small family affair has grown into one of the country’s most loved restaurants & live music venues, showcasing some of SA’s top musical and comedy acts.

Food continues to play a starring role with a varied menu that caters for all tastes including vegans, vegetarians and carnivores alike. Open for breakfast and lunch daily, as well as dinner on show nights, expect fresh, flavourful food with a modern edge.

Interiors are warm and vibrant with accents of wood, leather and greenery with tropical notes by local brand Bungalow Living. Come straight off the beach with your dogs (all canines friends are welcome on a leash), sit outside in the sun under sprawling oak trees or in a walled-off, child-friendly corner beside the playground in summer; in winter the fire is blazing inside with good music.

Café Roux is available to host a wide range of functions and special celebrations such as baby showers, birthdays, fundraisers, book and album launches as well as small conferences where hosts have access to an in-house projector and top-quality sound.

In addition to live music and comedy shows that take place in a unique and intimate setting, café Roux regularly screens thought-provoking films and hosts inspirational talks around topics including healing and wellness, adventure, lifestyle, spirituality and consciousness. To find out more, email us at or come in and say hello to our friendly staff, most of whom have been part of the family since inception.

“We wanted to create a special place where we could sit outside in the sun with our family and friends, eating great food, drinking our favourite wine, listening to music. Simply enjoying life”
