We live in one of the planet’s great pantries: a world of rich soils, a wonderful climate and bountiful harvests. “In season” and “local”, are our keys. Dinner at Hartford is a spectacular 4 or 6 course tasting menu, served in the grandeur of a timeless dining room, or in the candlelit splendour of one of Africa’s great verandas. There might be nine other “Top Ten” restaurants in the nation, but only one claims the ambiance which accompanies Hartford’s history and award-winning gardens.
Great ambience, the best risotto I have eaten, period. I loved the chicken wrapped up in Kamberg bacon. Thanks to pastry chef...sis' Deli Nene for the dessert of the decade.
When passion and excellence meet you know you're in for a treat.
We recently stayed at Hartford and felt welcome from the moment we drove through the gates. We started our stay with lunch on the verandah - I hadn't had such an excellent meal in ages (except until dinner).
We did a wine pairing with dinner which the chef had paired to perfection. We started our dinner with ostrich tartare - seasoned and well balanced. Next the tongue soup was rich and meaty but also light. You could have eaten a massive bowl. Third course was quail with crisp potatoes and chicken liver parfait which was a triumph. The springbok to follow was cooked with precision. Lastly the Turkish Delight was the ideal way to end a perfect meal. The service as always was attentive and friendly - how service should be!
Thank you to Jackie and the team at Hartford for a memorable stay and the best meal I've had in ages. My Top 3 in SA for sure!
Very good food, ambience and service! Lovely staff and all very attentive! Jackie is a fantastic chef and runs that kitchen with perfection!
