Owners description

Caribbean supermodel Mala Bryan is turning up the island vibe on the Cape Town restaurant beat with the opening of Kwéyòl Restaurant and Bar.

A melting pot of Creole flavours, colours and island music, this new Afro-Caribbean eatery is situated in a tropical jungle at Botanik Social House, the newly revamped events venue opposite the Company’s Garden in Queen Victoria Street. Botanik Social House is a new addition to Giorgio Nava’s restaurant group alongside his 95 and Carne collections.

Kwéyòl, the Caribbean word for Creole, is inspired by Mala’s childhood memories growing up on the island of St Lucia. By recreating a piece of her home and serving her favourite island food, Mala wants to transport Kwéyòl guests to the Caribbean.

  • If you think there’s any other place like Kwéyòl, you’re wrong. Kwéyòl is such a unique restaurant in Cape Town, that try as you might, you won’t try any other place like it. Situated in Botanik Social House in the CBD, when you step into Kwéyòl, you get a feeling of being at home. Being indoors, but outdoors. It feels like a little escape from the streets of Cape Town. Mala Bryan, the girlboss behind Kwéyòl, puts so much passion into her meals, and prepares everything with the highest amount of love. You can taste the homecooked feel in her meals, as every bite is packed to the brim with flavour. We tried the curried corn and fried chicken wings for starters and omg. You might want to order extra chips because the sauce of the curried corn is amazing! PS: Feel free to lick the bowl! For mains, we went for the lamb neck stew and the grilled chicken wings. From presentation to taste, each meal felt like you were in a Caribbean kitchen on a tropical island, with Afro influences, eating a fresh homecooked meal. Kwéyòl is a must for every local and tourist in Cape Town, and I can’t wait to go back and enjoy more of Mala’s meals!
