10. The Pot Luck Club

Woodstock, Cape Town
Open since: 2013
Position in the Top 10 last year: Nominee

This iconic Woodstock eatery by Luke Dale-Roberts with Frederico Dias in the kitchen cracks the Top 10 again thanks to its exciting and punchy play with flavours and trendy tapas-style experience. A visit to the Pot Luck Club isn’t quite complete without biting into the iconic fish tacos, or the beef fillet with café au lait sauce. Other high points include the chickpea, goat’s cheese and parmesan fries; fish sliders with amasi and maize meal; and earthy shredded confit duck leg with fresh plums. The famed s’mores with roasted frozen marshmallows and peanut-butter ice cream are a perfect way to sign off the meal.
