October Restaurant Safari to Marika’s

Posted by {Cape Town Editor} on October 31st, 2008. Categories: {Food & Wine, Restaurants}

Our October restaurant safari saw the Camps Bay Guest House Owners being hosted by Frank & Marika the owners of Marika’s Restaurant on Victoria Road, Bakoven. Frank extended his personal welcome and informed us that as well as being a restaurant they hosted regular wine club evenings and were also happy to arrange private functions for our guests. Everything on the menu was also available for take-away.

The fabulous informal dinner enabled us to try Marika’s wide choice of ‘mezedes’ (delicious starters to wet the appetite) of  Hummus, Taramosalata, Tsatziki and then Baby Calamari, Prawns, Dolmades, Haloumi Cheese, Greek Meat Balls, Crisp Fried Brinjals, Mussels in Cream and Garlic Sauce and Fried Chicken Livers. This was followed by a well-received scrumptious main course of Mousaka,  Chicken Kebabs and Salad and last but certainly not least we enjoyed a dessert of Greek Yoghurt  with a hint of lemon to tantalise the taste buds  and Baklava (nuts in phyllo pastry soaked in syrup – very decadent).

The wine for the evening was sponsored by Robin Marks of Bay Export – Glenview Wines. Robin is a wine merchant who resides in Camps Bay and offers fine quality wines, delivered to your door at extremely good prices. For more information visit Robin’s website . For orders tel: 021 438 1080 / 082 821 2847.

Marika’s is a popular  small  family run restaurant and  gets booked  up quickly so it is essential to book  a table to avoid disappointment.  As a family run restaurant, Frank & Marika offer that something special in Greek home cooking which provides a welcome contrast to the food offered by the more conventional steak and sea-food restaurants in Cape Town. The ambience of the restaurant is lively, friendly and casual. They are open from Tuesday to Sunday for dinner from 6:30pm and for Sunday lunch from 12 noon.

The Guest House Owners convey their thanks to Steve & Pam of Cape Rose Cottage Camps Bay for arranging the evening. Our thanks also to Frank and Marika, Vanjee (Marika’s mom) and the staff of Marika’s for hosting us and and giving us such a warm welcome ,  excellent service  and a superb selction from their menu.
