10. Yebo Beach/Ski Haus

In South Africa, the country is so geographically vast, that you can spend a morning in the snow capped mountains and an afternoon at the beach. At South African restauranteur Justin Anthony’s Yebo, you get both experiences in one restaurant. In the summer, it’s Yebo Beach Haus. In the winter, it’s transformed into Yebo Ski Haus. So whether you’re trying to hang at the bar and share a shot ski in the winter or enjoy the summer breeze and indulge in high end cocktails and some peri peri popcorn in the summer, Yebo is the place to be. Yebo is temporarily closed for dine-in, but their sister restaurant Biltong Bar is offering curbside pickup with menu of Yebo’s menu items.
