Book your table now

Christmas is a special time here in South Africa: we may not get any snow, but instead, we get to enjoy long holidays, lots of family time, and fantastic sunshine. All you need for the perfect summer celebration is your Christmas lunch or dinner, and the good news is that at Casalinga, we deliver just as reliably as Father Christmas.

Some of our regular diners return here every year for their family Christmas feast – after all, life is too short for grocery shopping, cooking and washing up. Instead, you could be relaxing with a glass of something refreshing in the Casalinga gardens as our chefs put the finishing touches to your choice of dishes from our new Christmas menu.

We’re excited to share this wonderful season with you all, and we’ve already started taking bookings. Be sure not to miss out – book your table today, and beat the Christmas rush!
