Join in the tradition with Jonny, Jorge and the rest of the family in their laid-back eatery.

The Black Sheep restaurant has been a labour of love for the Japha and Silva families. Every aspect of your experience, from the food to the décor, has been a journey to create a restaurant very close to their hearts. It is the culmination of 20 years of food, laughter and excellent wine. Join in the tradition with Jonny, Jorge and the rest of the family in their laid-back eatery where you and your friends can indulge in what The Black Sheep does best: great food and great company.

This intimate space features three dining levels, including a stunning mezzanine/lounge area, and our main floor, drenched in natural light and with great views of Table Mountain. Not hungry? Pop in for sundowners at our vibey street-side bar to wet your whistle on a cocktail or craft beer.

While Jonny looks after your food in the kitchen, Jorge will take care of you and your Black Sheep experience on the restaurant floor.
