Social media was abuzz just before the new year when Eat Out number 4 restaurant Wolfgat posted a photo to its Instagram account that featured the team with the president of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa.
Besides its prestigious spot in the Eat Out Top 10, Wolfgat has earned itself a string of accolades, including being named Restaurant of the Year at the inaugural World Restaurant Awards in early 2019.
The West Coast culinary gem is headed by chef Kobus van der Merwe, the 2018 Eat Out S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna Chef of the Year. An Eat Out critic had this to say about Wolfgat: “That the World Restaurant of the Year can start its tasting menu with a basic iron skillet of bokkom butter and a hessian bag of sourdough sticks is testament to the assured ease of Kobus van der Merwe, who’s just doing his own thing here. And you can’t help loving him for it.” Read the full review here.
At Wolfgat you can expect a dining experience like no other. Kobus is inspired by his unique surroundings on South Africa’s West Coast, with its rugged coastline offering extraordinary marine life and Strandveld Fynbos vegetation.
We’re certain that whatever Kobus served the president tickled his taste buds!
