Introducing Reuben's at One&Only Cape Town

One&Only Cape Town is thrilled to be home to Reuben Riffel's first urban restaurant, showcasing a menu that is deceptively simple with its wholesome bistro fare, fresh flavours, generous portions and beautifully plated dishes. Reuben's has a sophisticated, yet relaxed, brasserie ambience and the food provides the exciting combination of local flavours that one would expect from one of South Africa's most loved chefs, Reuben Riffel.

Riffel rose to fame when his first restaurant, Reuben's, opened to much acclaim in the historical town of Franschhoek in 2004. It has since won the coveted Eat Out 'Restaurant of the Year' and 'Chef of the Year' awards.

Reuben's appeals to the culinary side of the soul and will be enjoyed by both young and old alike.

Reuben’s Franschhoek

Keeping things simple and letting the food and service do the talking is what you can expect to find at Reuben’s Franschhoek, Reuben Riffel’s first restaurant.

Like the cuisine, the restaurant exhibits a homely yet sophisticated atmosphere where guests can enjoy their meals in an unhurried setting. Apart from the eclectic, regularly updated menu that lists a good number of Reuben’s favourites, specials of the day are scribbled on three large chalk boards against the wall. Like all of the meals, these specials are created to take advantage of the freshest ingredients as they become available and dishes are created on the inspiration of Chef Reuben Riffel.
