Theo's Restaurant, Cape Town 02/05/2007

Theo's, Camps Bay

Theo's Restaurant, Cape Town Theo's Restaurant is located on the seafront in Cape Town's premier location, Camp's Bay. This fantastic restaurant is renowned for it's seafood (having won best seafood restaurant several years running), and hangs it's own meat for top quality steaks. It has an extensive menu, serving everything from homemade burgers and pasta dishes to seasonal game and fresh line-caught fish. There is also a childrens menu offering quality food rather than the standard chicken nuggets. There are a variety of different desserts on offer each night which the waiter will bring to your table to tempt you. To accompany your meal, there is a massive selection of wines, both locally produced ones and foreign imports. The staff are well versed in which wines compliment your meal and are on hand to advise. There is also a good selection of sparkling wines, spirits and beers. With it's seafront location, Theo's is perfect for a tasty bite to eat after a day on the beach, with a parasol-covered outside area, and with a cosy interior for night time dining. The staff are extremely helpful and always strive to meet your requirements. Booking is not necessary during the day but may be advisable in the evening during peak season, although they will always try to fit you in. The dress code is typically South African - casual, casual, casual!

If you have read Jodi Picoult books before, you will be familiar with her style and, in some ways, it does follow the same kind of pattern as her other books, but nonetheless, Plain Truth is a great read and it takes you on the expected emotional rollercoaster. Using the Amish community as a backdrop for the book was fascinating and gave a whole new insight into their way of life, whilst highlighting the clashes in society over morals and beliefs. It really did encourage the reader to evaluate their thoughts on some of the pressing topics in the novel, such as betrayal, honesty, murder and judement. I would recommend it to both people who are Picoult fans and those who have not read her books before, because although some of the sequences are similar to her other books, her storytelling technique is so good that it has you hooked from the first page. ...
