Owners description

Offering a variety of seating arrangements, vibrant décor, colours and modern fireplaces, Balata Restaurant is famous for its breakfasts. Light business lunches are equally popular, but Balata is known for its exquisite fine dining under the leadership of Jean-Pierre Siegenthaler. Using the freshest produce available, all meals are served with great care and attention to detail.

The Sunday buffet lunch is a culinary feast not to be missed and romantic fine dining dinner next to the fireplace is high in demand. Their food-and-wine pairing dinners are always sold out so do visit their website regularly for updates.

The Fairway Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort is a member of the Guvon Hotels and was awarded with ‘Best New Hotel Africa and Indian Ocean’ at the World Travel Awards 2010. During loadshedding and water restrictions, they have a 630KVA generator that powers runs 100% of the hotel, spa and chapel. The hotel's water supply is secured by an 80 000 litre reservoir.

Balata Restaurant is accredited with the American Express Platinum Fine Dining Award 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

User reviews

  • The Balata is definitely not the same restaurant it was years ago The table was half set, there was an empty beer and water bottle on the counter near our table A good wine lost it’s appeal because it was the incorrect temperature The fish was questionable and the presentation of the the main dish was disappointing Great service though

  • I went to the Balata for a lunch-meeting and had the Ceasar Salad. It was absolutely amazing. I rate a restaurant by their Ceasar salad or Nicoise salad, and this item was beyond my expectations. I highly recommend this restaurant not only for the Ceasar salad, but also their servcie was really quick as they understood that my time was limited. The atmosphere is great, especially if you have a seat on the outside, which overlooks the golf course.
