Chocolat Bistro / Durbanville

If you love the decadent French styles and luxurious taste, then you will be in absolute awe at the Chocolat Bistro in Durbanville. Although the building looks rather inconspicuous on the outside, the interior will blow your mind!

This is a serious French affair at it’s best and you’ll be greeted by decadent interiors, impressive chandeliers, vintage furniture and a delicious menu. The French influence is visible in every small detail and it’s an absolute pleasure to discovering it all.

The restaurant has a small garden in the front and a huge inviting backyard where you can also park your car safely. Take a seat at the vintage furniture and dive right into the French inspired menu. They serve breakfast from 07:00 – 12:00 followed by light lunch options, mezze platters, pizzas, salads, mains or freshly baked sweet treats on their desert menu. They also have a couple of kiddies options available. You can check out their full menu here: MENU

The backyard also features an impressive kiddies play area which consists of an entire castle. You can slide down a huge slide, it has a baby slide too and a very cute little indoor play area full of toys and books and things to explore.

The first time we got there, we were kind of unlucky because the entire venue was booked for a wedding party. Since the place is absolutely amazing, you can also book it for a private party or function. You can contact them directly for enquiries. Plan your event here: EVENTS

Our Experience

Never judge a restaurant from the outside. This couldn’t be more true for the Chocolat Bistro. We were absolutely surprised by the great design, inviting space and the play area for the kids. While we could enjoy our food and drinks in the perfectly shaded garden, the kids had fun exploring their very own castle which features slides and a little “indoor” play zone with toys, books and more toys. We love this place and always take along our visitors to experience this unique environment.
