This fine dining hotel restaurant offers a diverse menu with multiple themed tasting menu options, including menus especially designed for vegans and vegetarians. The extensive a la carte menu combines fine dining classics with a distinct local South African flavour. Smoked snoek is reinvented with the addition of a 75°C cooked hen’s egg and a silky, smooth fish velouté. Old-school dhaltjies are given a modern twist with a flourish of cauliflower and pickled sultanas. The slow-cooked lamb shoulder – drizzled with a rich jus and served with a lamb shank tortellini and roast vegetables – is the perfect meat-lover’s main course.
If you’re a curry lover then the selection of seafood and chicken curries on offer are great options, served with rotis and a selection of condiments which allows you to season the curry to your perfect specifications. End the meal on a sweet note with the key lime pie, which is a delicious balance of tart and sweet.
The wine list is extensive and includes some very exclusive ones. There is a selection of wines also offered by the glass. Each tasting menu is paired with specific wines at an additional cost to the menu. Cocktails are available on request.
Service staff is attentive and personable. From the moment that you make your booking, the restaurant does their utmost to cater to your every specification, whether it be a special occasion or confirming dietary needs.
The restaurant terrace overlooks the ocean, great for sunset views. Inside, the décor echoes the blue of the ocean. The middle of the restaurant has mechanical, tropical fans giving the place an interesting eclectic feel. The setting is very formal, as one would expect from a fine dining restaurant, so expect pressed white linens, multiple sets of cutlery and an amuse bouche to start off your meal.
Dress code for diners is semi-formal. Men are required to wear long trousers and closed shoes.
