Old Oak Manor & Café Felix
Café Felix is an exciting restaurant in the picturesque Riebeek Valley. The original food concept was based on the popular Olympia Café & Deli in Kalkbay, which involves a blackboard menu that changes continuously depending on the type of fresh produce that is available. The menu has evolved slowly over time and today the cuisine at Café Felix can be described as sumptuous French-Italian inspired country cuisine.
Since its opening in December 2005, Café Felix has steadily been building a reputation for itself as a name synonymous with sumptuous fresh country cuisine, good service and a special ambience (described by many as a piece of France). In the process it also became popular as a venue for small weddings, corporate functions and special birthdays. Today Café Felix is still building on these strengths.
Old Oak Manor is an old farmhouse that was converted into a comfortable guesthouse by interior guru Salome Gunter. It is one of the oldest houses in Riebeek Kasteel that was built around 1860.
The "lived-in" French style interior is apparent throughout the house. Accommodation is provided in the form of four on-suite bedrooms in the main guesthouse, a "honeymoon suite" in the spacious loft above the restaurant and a cheeky little garden cottage.
Described by many guests as a "home from home" the guesthouse has been featured in numerous local and international interior and hospitality magazines. Located on the same property, Old Oak Manor and Café Felix form an ideal combination.
