The Best Monday Specials in Cape Town in July 2024

Last Updated on July 1, 2024 by Hannah Stephenson

If you’re looking to eat out for cheap this Monday, then I’ve got you covered.

Restaurants are always trying to get customers through the door on Mondays, so there are lots of specials to take advantage of. So why not cure those Monday blues with bottomless sushi, pizzas, burgers, or even sirloin steak?

Lots of blogs out there list hundreds of options and half of them are out of date. I keep this list fairly small and only include what I genuinely think are the best options, and I update it every single month to make sure it stays relevant, because deals change all the time! 

Okay, now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s dive in. 

1. Bottomless Sushi at Aiko Sushi 

Aiko Sushi (formerly Active Sushi) on Bree Street is here to brighten up your Monday with all-you-can-eat sushi for R249. For 1.5 hours, you can eat as much sushi as you want, but you do get billed R8 for every piece left on your plate, so do try not to over-order. (I know that’s difficult when it comes to sushi!)

Not everything on the menu is included in the bottomless sushi deal, but you can get:

  • California rolls
  • Makis
  • Nigiri
  • Fashion sandwiches
  • Deep fried sushi
  • 2 portions of roses per person 
  • Futomaki 

This deal is available all day, so if you come at lunchtime you can also get some of their lunch combos included in your bottomless sushi session. It’s actually a daily special, but vegan sushi is only part of the deal from Wednesday to Sunday.

Address: 4 Bree St, Cape Town City Centre

2. Cheap Pizza at Lupa Osteria

Lupa Osteria is a traditional Roman-style Italian joint out in Durbanville, and they’ve got great Monday specials. It’s an airy and elegant space and is perfect for a leisurely glass of wine, and their pasta is made fresh on-site daily, so it’s absolutely delicious. 

However, on Monday, it’s all about pizza over here. 

You can order a pizza and a beer for R129 until 9 pm, which is a nice way to congratulate yourself for surviving another Monday. 

Or, if you’re coming before 4 pm, you can order any lunch dish for R99. This special is actually available every weekday, but Monday is as good a day as any to take advantage of it. 

Address: The Village Square, Queen St, Durbanville

3. 3-course dinner deal at Asoka 

Glamorous Asoka is the place to be on Tuesday nights, if you go there on a Monday instead you can take advantage of their 3-course dinner deal. 

For R265 per person, you can enjoy three courses of their modern Asian fusion cuisine. Asoka is generally a pretty pricey place, so this is a really good deal. You don’t have to dress up to the nines but this is the kind of place you make a bit of an effort for, so if you feel like getting a little dolled up this Monday, you know where to go. 

Address: 68 Kloof Street, Gardens

They’re not included in the deal, but the cocktails at Asoka are amazing!

4. Dinner and a movie at the Labia 

Dinner and a movie for R100? Sign me up!

You will need people for this deal, but it’s such good value that it’s definitely worth doing whether it’s date night or you’re just catching up with a friend.

The Labia is Cape Town’s old school cinema. It’s an independent movie theatre with a cute outdoor terrace and a bar so you can even take a drink into the cinema with you if you like! They show old and new movies, and plenty of independent flicks – you can check the timetable here.

Meanwhile, the Wolf House is a restaurant on Kloof Street with a cool rooftop bar section, and they serve great burgers, pizzas, and nachos.

And if you head to the Wolf House on Monday, you can get two beef, chicken or veggie burgers for R200 PLUS two tickets to the Labia.

To redeem this deal head to The Wolf House first and get your burgers. Then when you pay at the restaurant you can grab your cinema vouchers and then head over to the Labia to catch a movie. Not a bad way to spend a Monday night! 

Address: 68 Orange Street, Gardens (The Labia), 62 Kloof Street, Gardens (The Wolf House)

6. R78 Burger at the Wolf House

If you don’t feel like watching a movie but are still in the mood for one of The Wolf House’s yummy burgers, then you can get one for R78 on a Monday – with chips, of course.

This burger deal is pretty hard to beat and this month the Wolf House are also offering a 500ml Kapstaad or Black Label lager for R37, which is perfect if you’re craving some beer to wash it down with. Plus, they’re opposite my favourite place of all – Van Hunks.

Address: 62 Kloof Street, Gardens

7. Van Hunks – 2 Pizzas for R150

I love the pizza at Van Hunks (and just everything about Van Hunks), and you can get two for R150 for their Monday special. You can also get two bottles of Tafel lager for R50 at the same time, so if you feel like pizza and beer this Monday, Van Hunks is clearly the place to go. 

And in my opinion, it’s always the place to go. 

Address: 1 Upper Union Street, Gardens

8. Specials Galore at Quay Four Tavern 

The Quay Four Tavern is one of the best affordable restaurants at the waterfront. With its laid back atmosphere and excellent harbour views, it’s a great place to come and enjoy some seafood when the sun’s out, but they also have a ton of great specials.

Personally, I love the fact that you can get sirloin steak and chips for R139 – I mean, that’s just what you need on a Monday! But you can also get fish and chips or a spatchcock chicken for the same price, and if you’ve had a really great Monday you can even order 6 oysters and a glass of bubbly for R155. 

Just remember that these specials only apply when you sit downstairs in the Tavern!

Address: Quay, 4 Dock Road, V&A Waterfront

9. Half price vegan burgers at Hudsons

Embrace #MeatFreeMonday at Hudsons with their vegan burger special! Hudsons have some of the best burgers in Cape Town, and they don’t just have one plant-based option, either. You can choose from:

  • The Frontline Worker, which is pea protein burger served with roasted garlic aioli and homemade pickles
  • The Scheckter’s Raw, which is like a local version of a Beyond Meat patty
  • The Seoul, which comes with Korean BBQ sauce and spring onion 
  • The San Fran – a mushroom and lentil patty served with vegan cheese

These options range between R95 – R115, so on Monday you’ll only have to pay between R47.5 and R57.5. Not bad!

There’s a Hudsons along Main Road in Green Point, which is my preferred location, or there’s one on Kloof Street and one in Claremont as well.

Address: 22 Kloof Street, Gardens OR 1A Portside Mall, Main Road Green Point OR 25 Protea Road, Claremont
