Chef James Diack has become known as the restaurateur in and around Parkhurst. His ethos of organic, free range and hormone-free keeps patrons’ happy, while his delectable comfort-driven offerings keep them coming back for more.
The menu is an ode to delicious comfort food – bangers and parmesan mash, chicken pot pie, roast pork belly with apple mash and crackling, and an array of outstanding hand-made pastas are all guaranteed to make you smile. Or choose from some of the best burgers in town – the double cheeseburger with onion relish, tomato and rocket, served with hand-cut chips, is a little bit life-changing. The crumbed chicken burger with sriracha mayo, slaw and chips comes a close second.
For dessert there’s nothing to beat the famous deep-fried Snickers bar with marshmallow ice cream. The chocolate fondant with fudge drops and vanilla anglaise is also fantastic.
You’ll struggle to find a restaurant with better wines by the glass – the range is diverse and delicious, not to mention very well priced. The extensive wine and cellar list will have winos banging at the door and with a Coravin option on many of the high-end wines, you really can have your cake and eat it. And then there’s Wine Wednesdays, where you can get three gorgeous boutique wines for only R50 a glass. If wine isn't your thing, in-house mixologist Jesse will concoct something fabulous to suit your mood. He makes stellar virgin cocktails too.
The majority of waiters have worked here for years, so they know patrons by name and welcome you like family. They’re well versed in the menu and wines, and really care.
The outside deck seating is a favourite for summer days and warm evenings – laid-back and inviting – while the darker, cosier interior and bar are perfect for winter afternoons and romantic dinners for two. A good mix of rugged and romantic.
