Critic's review

Richard Holmes

Food

As the all-day dining restaurant for the adjoining Taj Cape Town hotel, the menu here ranges widely to cater for all manner of hunger pangs.

There’s a lengthy breakfast menu for al fresco weekends, but the most interesting offering is the modern bistro-style selection at lunch and dinner. The ‘Comfort Food’ section offers a globetrotting array of plates, meandering from delicious ponzu-glazed chicken wings to Mumbai tiffin of chicken and fish curry with sides.

The generous selection of steaks – all served with café de Paris butter – is popular, but the ‘Butcher’s Corner’ also delves into game meats, Moroccan-spiced chicken and a dependable Taj burger with juicy beef or lamb patty.

Local flavours come to the fore in the worthwhile desserts, where you’ll find a deconstructed peppermint tart to remind you of childhood, and the dependable Malva pudding, here with a fresh naartjie ice cream.

A dedicated kids’ menu offers accessible plates for younger guests.

Drinks

Impressive wine list that ranges widely across the Cape winelands. There’s an excellent selection by the glass, at very reasonable prices.

Service

Warm and welcoming, with none of the forced formality you’d expect from a hotel restaurant.

Ambience

Airy double-volume space with tables spilling onto pedestrianised St. George’s Mall. For a drink and a light bite these terrace tables are best, but longer lunches and dinner are more enjoyable indoors.

Best for…

Business lunches.
