Food & drink
Dinner is not included in the ticket price.
At cafe Roux Noordhoek – enjoy a small & delicious dinner menu that changes every few weeks. On it you’ll find soup, salads, burgers, pasta, curries, linefish, steaks, wraps & more. We always have a vegetarian & vegan option.
At cafe Roux CT –
A pared-down menu featuring handmade wood-fired pizzas, salad boards and cheese-and-charcuterie platters using fresh local ingredients will be on offer. Dessert is proudly Noordhoek with Kristen’s Kick Ass Ice Cream served in a sugar cone or cup.
At both venues, you can indulge in a pre-show cocktail – our famous G ‘n T’s served in a fishbowl glass, are defintely worth trying, else choose a craft beer or a beer on tap. The wine list has something for everyone. A glass of Wolftrap red always goes down well at night. Finish off your evening with a Village Roast Coffee, roasted and blended in The Farm Village, Noordhoek.
How to book
All bookings are made through www.webtickets.co.za. You can link to webtickets through our lineup page. Select the show of your choice & follow the steps with webtickets.
When booking tickets, do I get a table?
When you make your booking through webtickets, you will automatically get a table in your booking name. 6 tickets = a 6-seater table.
Don’t have a credit card?
Webtickets has an option whereby you can make an eft or pay at your nearest Pick n Pay. Also feel free to pop into the venue and pay by cash/credit card pre-show & we will submit your tickets manually.
All tickets are non-refundable. Want to transfer your tickets to someone else? Contact webtickets to transfer your tickets into another name
webtickets also offers you the option of rescheduling your tickets to another show. The show has to be the same ticket price.
Late afternoon outdoor Summer Sessions (Noordhoek)
We limit our Summer Session lineup to 4 or 5 shows a year. These are larger outdoor late afternoon concerts. Aimed at the whole family (kids under 12, not occupying table seats, are free). 2 ticket options – grass tickets (cheaper), further away form the stage. Bring blankets, no picnic baskets permitted. Mobile bar & burger braai stand available. Seated tickets – at tables & benches, closer to the stage, under the Bedouin tent. Like Kirstenbosch, there are no refunds for grass tickets should it rain on the day.
Get on the waiting list
Seen a show you like & it’s sold out? Email Michelle@caferoux.co.za with your full name and cellphone number & how many tickets you would like. Things change, people cancel, sometimes we can squeeze more in. We’ll always try our best….
Booking big tables
When making a large booking for a group of people. Please make your booking under one name & you will automatically be seated together at one table. Should people wish to be added to your table, please make a note in the special messages box when booking on webtickets. Follow this up with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org & we will try our best to accommodate you & seat you all together.
Tables of 2
cafe Roux is a very small venue. Tables of 2 take up a huge amount of floor space, lessening the venue capacity. For that reason, we only have a few 2-seater tables on offer. The first people to book (x2) automatically get these tables. Should you book later, you will share a larger table with others. Special requests : any special requests to be submitted in the special messages box whilst booking through webtickets. Email email@example.com if you have a special request as to where you would like to sit/not sit. We will do our best to accommodate you.
Our SSSSSHHHHHH policy
Out of respect to the artists & the enjoyment of the audience, we have a strict NO TALKING policy for the duration of the show. Catch up before & after. And if you really have to talk, please go outside & do it there. You’ll find each table has a SSSSSHHHHH table talker. Feel free to show this to anyone around you who is making a noise!
If you plan to have a few drinks, please be sensible. Download the Uber app onto your phone, otherwise sign up with www.1fortheraod.co.za & get someone else to drive you home in your own car. Feel free to ask one of our waiters/managers to help you should you need it.
Stay over in Noordhoek?
Looking for some where close to sleep over? Look no further than De Noordhoek Hotel, situated in The Farm Village, next to cafe Roux. There are a number of lovely local B & B’s, within walking distance…..Trem-Y-don (http://tremydon.co.za/), Sacred Mountain Lodge (http://www.sacredmountain.co.za/) & House at Pooh Corner (http://www.poohcorner.co.za/).
Can kids come?
We do not have a strict policy on bringing children to shows. If you feel your child is capable of staying up til after 10pm, would be ok with the sound levels & will not disturb the patrons around them, you are more than welcome to bring them. They will be charged the full ticket price.
Last minute bookings
Suddenly feel like a bit of live music at the last minute. Give Deo a call on 021 789 2538 & find out if there is a spot/table/bar stool available for you
Keen to perform @ cafe Roux
We are currently staging solo/duo acoustic acts on Saturday & Sunday afternoons from 2pm – 4pm in Noordhoek. Background, easy listening live music for our late lunch crowd. This is a perfect gig for young artists looking for a stage to perform on & a bit of exposure.
At night, we host the cafe Roux Sessions, staging SA’s best, as well as talented up & coming artists who have a good following in Cape Town. As our shows are all pre-booked online, we are looking for bands/musicians who are confident they will attract a decent audience. We hate having to cancel a show due to low numbers.
All shows are pre-booked online through www.webtickets.co.za & www.caferouxsessions.co.za. Please get in touch with us – Michelle@caferoux.co.za
Please submit attached artist form if you are keen to perform at cafe Roux.
We will immediately add you to our database & will be in touch should an opportunity arise to perform in the future
