You finally got a ring on your finger and what better way to celebrate than with a chic bash surrounded by your nearest and dearest? The engagement party is the first official celebration of your union: you get to revel in your elation, show off that gorgeous ring and have some fun before all the hectic planning gets underway. So share your big news in the classiest way at one of these four great spots.

1 Mondiall Kitchen & Bar, Cape Town


Located in the scenic V&A Waterfront, Mondiall Kitchen & Bar is a buzzing eatery with an incredible view of Table Mountain. The space is elegant and modern yet comfortable, making it perfect for you to enjoy a long leisurely celebration. The menus are seasonal so no matter the time of year you decide to have your party, you know the food will be suitable for the weather.

The dishes are created by Chef Stephen Mandes who won season three of Ultimate Braai Master and is superb, to say the least. You can book a table or a section in the restaurant that suits you best. There;s a lovely patio area with a great vantage point of the mountain or, if you’re looking for privacy, the cosy upstairs space seats a good 20 or so people.
