Sonny and Irene is a genuinely unique South African restaurant offering a unique dining experience. From the stunning art deco interior to the fresh and flavorful dishes, there is something here to please everyone. Celebrating cafe-style classics with a contemporary twist, Sonny and Irene bring a new kind of pizazz to Sea Point, opening in the spring of 2022.

Nestled between the urban seaside and the city of Cape Town, sweet sophistication is the order of the day. This is classic with a kick, set in a perfect palette of organic greens with pops of soft pink and gold, finished in natural timber, marble, and plush velvet with Art Deco accents.

Their menu features a wide selection of classic dishes, innovative seasonal options, and delicious pastries. The staff is always friendly and helpful, providing honest recommendations and top-notch service. The burgers they serve are flavorful and delicious, and the Prawn Linguine is an explosion in the mouth.

For those looking to treat someone special, Sonny and Irene is the perfect place for a special occasion. They even offer a 3-course winter special that offers good value for money.
