Have a Look at Our Delicious Menu Below

11 Chefs under the trained eye of Executive Chef Stefan Meintjies serve excellent traditional South African food.

Starters include home-made pickled fish, peri-peri chicken livers with crusty bread to mop up the sauce, or a crisp fresh salad. Delicious bobotie made the way Ouma used to with chutney and sambals on the side, or the vegetarian option; butternut and almond bobotie. Or go for the heavenly pork belly, slow-roasted in honey, soy and garlic, or a lamb shank, falling off the bone, cooked in red wine and garlic, served with creamed potatoes. Finish up with home-made malva pudding and ice cream, or the chocolate torte, made with Lindt Dark Chocolate and served with Van Der Hum Ice Cream. Either way, this is comfort food, comfort style, at its best.

A Very extensive, but selective wine list including wines from local farms as well as a taste of what Cape Town winelands has on offer.
