The date and venue have been set for this year’s Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards. Our much-anticipated annual celebration of the best of the South African restaurant industry will take place at the Grand Arena at Grand West in Cape Town on Sunday 20 November 2016. After the success of last year’s awards daytime format, the event will once again be a gastronomic, multi-sensory Sunday lunch.

These awards recognise the top ten restaurants in South Africa as well as the Eat Out S.Pellegrino Acqua Panna Chef of the Year, and the winners of the Eat Out Boschendal Style Award, the Eat Out Nederburg Rising Star, the Eat Out Lannice Snyman Lifetime Achievement Award, the Eat Out Nespresso Service Excellence Award, and the Eat Out Wine Service Award. There are also two new awards this year: the Eat Out Retail Capital New Restaurant of the Year and the Eat Out Woolworths Sustainability Award.

Guests can expect an unforgettable feast for the senses. There will be a six-course menu designed by some of the country’s top chefs, in collaboration with Pete Goffe-Wood, paired with excellent wines, top-class entertainment and displays, and a venue filled with the stars of the restaurant industry.
