Owners description

Launched in November 2013, Equus Dine at Cavalli has already established itself as a premier dining destination in the Western Cape.

​Headed​  by talented Executive Chef Hylton Espey, Cavalli’s approach to cuisine can be described as ‘modern, nature inspired cuisine, inspired by a focus on their heritage ​as it draws upon​ the landscapes, flora and fauna of Southern and Continental Africa.

​Their menu ​seeks to​ take you on a ​gastronomic journey, ​touching on points of nostalgia. ​They forage daily in their heirloom vegetable garden​ which translates to  superior flavour, higher quality produce​ and speaks to their belief in sustainability. Equus offers guests the opportunity to experience a delicious relaxed bistro lunch or a fine dining dinner

paired with an expertly crafted wine list, craft beers and an impressive​  select​ion of​  whiskeys. As a result, the restaurant, which over looks a serene dam set against the backdrop of the magnificent Helderberg mountain range, has become a favourite among discerning foodies. Cavalli Equus has also set a new benchmark for stylish winelands dining, scooping the prestigious Eat Out Style Award.

  • A chic setting accompanied by excellent service, very tasty and well prepared food and a wine list to impress. The views, art gallery and tasting room add another level of opulence to the overall experience. So far, my favourite place in Stellenbosch!
