A cheeky change of location for Rick’s Café into the vibrant and lively Kloof Sstreet is the go-to place for drinks, dinner and dancing. It sStill has the same diverse menu offering a range of dishes from Moroccan, Mediterranean and American cuisines to satisfy your palate. The Victorian style atmosphere takes you back into the 1940s, distinctly reminiscent of the classic movie Casablanca.

Bacini’s is a Roman inspired, family-owned restaurant that offers quality food, and service, and a brilliant overall dining experience. With a new fresh look after a complete revamp, you can be rest assured that you’ll get the same quality pizza tossing since 1989. 

We would recommend their menu’s Nono’s Carbonara Pasta and Meterazzi Pizza if you ever make a visit.

GP/OKCID security report – November 2020

The number of reported crimes increased slightly, from 18 in October to 19 in November, however, as we enter the festive season and more local tourists make their way down to the Cape, this was expected. We had an impressive 88% increase in arrests in November, with 32 arrests. 6 of these were for general theft, while other arrests included those for drinking and driving, armed robbery, attempted housebreaking and suspicious persons.

There has been a spike in incidents of remote jamming in Green Point; specifically in and around Hudson, Strand and Waterkant Streets. We urge you to please always double check that your car is locked before walking away, even if you only plan to step away from your car for a moment.

Oranje-Kloof is currently experiencing an increase in theft out of motor vehicles. To prevent theft out of your motor vehicle, please ensure that any of your possessions are hidden from plain sight, and avoid keeping any valuables in your car. Also note that, should you wish to store items in the boot of your car to keep them out of sight, it is recommended that you place these items in your boot before reaching your destination to do so, to prevent criminals from targeting your vehicle after observing your valuables being placed there.

In order to further prevent criminal activity and petty theft, there has been an increase in general security presence in and around the Green Point and Oranje-Kloof areas, with officials patrolling our streets on foot in order to stop and challenge suspicious characters.

Lastly, we would like to reiterate the implementation of a zero-tolerance policy around drinking and driving. If your blood has an alcohol content of over 0.05%, you will be considered as being over the limit. To put this into perspective, for many, this equates to a 350ml beer or a single tot of any spirit, however this varies from one person to the next. For the safety of yourself and your fellow South Africans, we urge you to catch a cab or Uber if you feel that you might be over the limit.

Remember to keep our 24 patrol vehicle numbers on hand for assistance, and don’t hesitate to contact them if you ever feel at-risk:
