Carlyles on Derry

Carlyles on Derry, located in the heart of Vredehoek, is an Italian themed restaurant which has been welcoming Capetonians and visitors alike since 2002.

The casual, traditional feel of the interior caters for a wide variety of occasions. From a quiet dinner for two to after work drinks, the friendly, knowledgeable staff will make you feel right at home. It’s also great to see owners Murray and Rob tinkering around the restaurant. Their passion for providing each guest with an exceptional experience shows in the food and attention to detail.

Offering both sit down and takeaway, Carlyles menu is bursting with Italian favourites. Pizza, pasta, artisanal breads and salads are listed alongside mouth-watering lamb shank, beef and seafood dishes. They also offer some killer Banting and wheat-free options!

What goes better with delicious Italian than a fine wine? Well, if not the top pick, craft beer has to be a close second! Luckily, Carlyles has plenty of both. From Chenin to Shiraz, you’re spoiled for choice.

Our Top 3 Food Picks:

Carlyles Legendary Lambshank – Slow cooked lamb shank, simmered in our secret red wine sauce, served with pesto mash potato, green beans & butternut

Wild Mushroom Cappelletti – Handmade mushroom & ricotta filled pasta parcels with a mushroom, sage & pecorino sauce

La Parma Pizza – Parma ham, cracked black pepper, lemon infused rocket & pecorino

Our Top DPBC Beer and Food Pairing: La Parma Pizza with First Light Golden Ale

Though we haven’t had every pizza on the menu, we’re willing to wager La Parma has to be in the top three. The ham is perfectly cured and an excellent contrast to the low, malty sweetness of First Light. But be sure you leave room for dessert. They’ve got phyllo wrapped Bar One, deep fried and served with ice cream!
