About The Village Idiot

Cuisine: International

We raise our glasses to the foolish renegades, adventurous idiots and those who refuse the rules of conformity. Anyone can sit with us at The Village Idiot – where pub grub is a braai, the jol is a vibe and the inner city comes to jive.

The Village Idiot neighbourhood bar & restaurant is Cape Town’s best loved local. Bring your buddy, your gabba, your sista or your brigade and let us show you how to indulge in the art of laid-back living.

Our famous open-air balcony sets the scene for a variety of summertime braai, beer and beat inspired events. Enjoy unrivalled views of the vibrant inner-city of Cape Town as sip your troubles away.

Gather around tasty chow as you meet up with old friends, new loves and charismatic acquaintances. For the comfort seekers out there our antique indoor-fireplace offers a cozy chilling space with a pool table, perfect for when the cooler months roll around. The Village Idiot invites you to try our specially curated braai-food menu – a culinary reflection of our regular crowd. Taste your way through a feast festival of trendy but traditional South African staples. Perfectly seasoned and prepared with that “home cooked woema” we all love.

For those who enjoy a bit of ball with a beer, we offer multiple mounted television screens. On days when the spirits (and stakes) are at their highest we have a drop-down projector to make sure that we are all part of the action.
