Venue

The Wild Fig restaurant brings that warm country feeling directly to our doorsteps in Cape Town. The restaurant is located on a portion of the Valkenberg Estate and is situated in a fairly new building that was built as a part of the restoration of the Valkenberg Manor House. The Wild Fig bar is built in the original barn which is a National Monument. The venue leaves its guests with warmth and comfort and makes them a part of a great piece of history. A crackling fire in Winter and an outdoor garden lunch in Summer makes The Wild Fig a perfect venue all year round.
