Welcome to Con Brio Bistro

Nestled under the slopes of Table Mountain, Con Brio Bistro is one of Vredehoek’s best loved local restaurants.

It’s a place where friends and neighbours meet and foodie-friendly, vegetarian/vegan-friendly, child-friendly and dog-friendly come together. There are few places in Cape Town that boast such a selection of fine foods in such a warm, relaxed and inviting atmosphere.

“What a little neighborhood gem! I went there for lunch with my husband (we are foodies) and we were pleasantly surprised. The light meal menu is extensive and well priced with a lot of vegetarian options. The wine list is good too. Can’t wait to go back for dinner.”
