Valora - Great food in the heart of Cape Town

Everyone who knows me, knows that I love food and especially good food. Therefore I am always on the look out for great food at amazing venues.

When I found out that a friend of mine had recently opened a very upmarket restaurant with her husband in the CBD, I was anxious to try it out. Not only did I know the food would be good, I knew the service would be even better and definitely something worth bragging about.

Michael Mouneimme, ex-operator of Cafe Caprice in Camps Bay, and wife Aisha Mouneimme, journalist and founder of Mommy Matters, opened the doors to Valora in July 2011. Situated on the corner of Loop and Hout Street, this divine place features Mediterranean, French, Greek, Italian, Portuguese cuisine prepared by the recognised Chef Andrew Mendes.

Apart from their amazing and diverse menu, I was particularly impressed by the decor, which was extremely modern, elegant and classy.

 
The menu had a variety of options to choose from, which meant that I could now have multiple favourites and would keep on going back. Valora always has various specials and runs competitions, so make sure you Like their Facebook Page for real time updates. Do yourself a favour and visit this gem of a restaurant in the heart of Cape Town.
