Four And Twenty, Wynberg, South Africa

My parents made their annual visit to us in June and the plan for the day was that Dave and my dad would go to the motor racing, and my mom and I would go for lunch. My mom had read about Four And Twenty and so we decided to make our way to the Southern Suburbs. It was pouring with rain, and given the amount of water on the ground, Dave reckoned the racing would not be fun and so he decided all 4 of us would go for lunch. We managed to find parking quite easily in the road and luckily for us there was a table available. They do not take reservations on Saturdays and I was told when I called that they are full from breakfast time, but a table of 2 should not be a problem.

They serve local organic produce from Tenterden Children’s Home Project where possible. The average main course price is R83 which I consider high for lunch. I chose a brandy cask aged cider to drink (660mls for R58) which is one of the nicest ciders I have had in South Africa. The wine list is good, with a good representation of local wines and good prices.

For my lunch I chose the sandwich of the day (R65) which was one slice of bread, topped with avocado, feta and chicken mixed with a honey aioli and served with a side salad. The side salad was lettuce only and had quite an oily dressing. The sandwich itself was extremely tasty and the portion was generous.

The dining area was very noisy and overly warm. The staff are extremely friendly and most helpful. They are open Tuesday to Saturday, 8am to 5pm and Sundays 9am to 4pm. Contact them on +27 21 762 0975

  1. What an interesting place. I’m a bit turned off if it’s too warm or too noisy but really, it’s all about the food and the companionship. It looks like you had a good time and that open faced sandwich looks terrific.

  2. Wow! The prices are steep but it’s good to know that the food is good. I LIVE in Cape Town but haven’t gone to a Southern Suburbs eatery since I left that side 10 years ago 😉 xx

  3. It sounds as if South Africa is a little cheaper than the UK, Tandy. And definitely cheaper than Australia. A main course here can be anywhere from 140 to 300 rand … and that would just be in a cheap to average kind of restaurant!
    Anyway, I got a bit distracted by your mention of the prices. The sandwich with avocado, feta and chicken is making my mouth water!

    1. Eating out here is so reasonable compared to overseas, even with the terrible exchange rate. We had a lunch special in a pub for £12 which came to R216!

  4. Lovely way to spend time with your parents and lovely to see the café uses local produce – I think it is so important for local eateries to use the produce of the area – it’s a win, win.

  5. Oh I adore the decor, what a cute idea using kitchen goodies. 🙂
    Brandy cask aged cider…. heck yeah, that sound awesome.
    Tandy, I am planning a visit to Mandy – The Complete Book in 2015, thinking a couple of weeks in South Africa, I can add this and some of your other places to my list. Hope you are well. Cheers, Anna

    1. Hi Anna, I am sure you will love your visit to Mandy! She is quite some way from Cape Town but if you come this way give me a shout 🙂

  6. Your sandwich looks really good, Tandy. I’m not surprised the men decided to come with you for lunch. My hubby wouldn’t have been able to resist the idea of a meal on a cold, wet day. 🙂

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
