Bar and Bistro: the Two Sides of The Moveable Feast


Walk through one door and you enter a chic bistro with small white tables and large angled mirrors. Walk through another door and you're in a cool bar complete with a stage for live entertainment and space to roam about. These are not two separate places. It is the two sides of The Moveable Feast, the newest restaurant and bar to hit Kloof Nek in Cape Town.

the bistro

Enjoy relaxed dining at the French-inspired bistro that offers a short but memorable menu made in an open kitchen. Contemporary and minimalist set the tone for the eatery, with everything from the condiment containers to the furnishings embodying the pared-back style. Stunning large mirrors on the walls make the space feel bigger than it is, while a balcony allows you to recline and look out of the white-paned windows on the street below.

When it comes to the food expect tasty and delicious, with attention to detail in the plating and presentation. Savour a mix of French cuisine alongside firm favourites like steak and burgers. Clear standouts are the roasted beetroot starter with cream cheese, and the Daube de Springbok done in red wine with burnt onions and blushed tomatoes for mains. They also have a delightful apple tart for dessert. The Moveable Feast bistro is currently open on Monday - Saturday for lunch and dinner.

the bar

A  luminous sign about the bar is the first indicator that you have entered a completely different atmosphere in this section of The Moveable Feast. This is a space where you can have a casual drink, quite bite and (more importantly) experience a variety of entertainment.

From drag shows to musicians, the bar offers an eclectic mix of acts that you can see in the evenings. During the day you can sit on the balcony, sip on a drink and enjoy the views. The bar is open Monday - Saturday from 11am until late.
