Chocolate Easter Bunnies and sweet treats, Afternoon Tea, One&Only Cape Town


Whether you’re looking for an indulgent Easter meal or chocolate blowout, One&Only Cape Town has it all for everyone. Situated a mere stone’s throw from the V&A Waterfront and on the doorstep of the city centre, One&Only Cape Town has some irresistible goodies as usual this weekend.

Celebrations begin on Good Friday with a delicious seafood dinner and fine wines. Guests can enjoy a chic supper in an elegant setting in Reuben’s, feasting on some of the best local seafood on offer. Price is R795 for adults and half price for children aged 4 – 12 years.

Have a traditional Cape-inspired Easter Sunday Lunch at Reuben’s for R495 pp adults, 1/2 price for children between 4 – 12 years. Or splash out on Japanese dining with a South African twist, with Nobu’s á la carte dinner menu on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

If chocolate and sweet delights spell ‘Easter’ to you, book for Afternoon Tea on Good Friday and Easter Saturday. A special  Easter-themed Tea Party on Easter Sunday will have amazing novelty cakes, Hot Cross Bun-flavoured macarons and more-ish treats . Afternoon Tea on Good Friday and Saturday: R295 pp; Easter Sunday R350 pp.

Little ones will be kept amused with face painting and a magician on Easter Sunday, an Easter Bunny Treasure Hunt at 3pm or their very own Easter-themed Afternoon Tea at R95 per child. Adult supervision is required for toddlers under 4. 

Expect a visit from the Easter Bunny and for junior hotel guests booked in for the weekend, an Easter-egg decorating workshop with a prize for the most innovative and dazzling designs.

Big treat for the weekend is a special Family Package which includes accommodation plus the following: unlimited home-made ice-cream and sorbet for kids during their stay, an excursion to the Two Oceans aquarium with complimentary food and beverage. Book this Family Package for the perfect Easter escape.

The Table Bay Hotel has a variety of wonderful happenings. 

Two words: chocolate fountain. That sold me.

For children, a hands-on cooking class and decorating Easter Eggs. For cultivated hedonists (like me, and you probably), a fabulous High Tea spread. Tip: there’s a gigantic gin cocktail menu. And an even bigger bespoke tea menu. And an even BIGGER cake buffet. Go. You’ll never forget it.
