Food
This restaurant run by Cornel Mostert and Cynthia Rivera is inspired by their experiences working in top restaurants in New York, Chicago and Copenhagen. A short paper menu lists the options of small plates intended for sharing. Boldly simple and raw options might include a generous serving of market fish capaccio laid out on a bed of sour hot sauce; whipped hake roe; a very tasty smoked lamb tartare with a glossy soy-cured egg yolk and crisp vegetable chips; oysters; or straciatelli with white anchovies. What remains are the famed cacio e pepe (creamy and confident, a highlight, despite the high price) and an utterly gorgeous dish of meaty and fragrant foraged mushrooms on a bed of creamy polenta. Beef with cafe de Paris butter and the catch of the day are at the top end of the menu. The one dessert on offer might be something like a dutch baby with lemon and fromage blanc.

Drinks
An intriguing selection of wines from the likes of Swartland and Elgin sits along some local and international craft spirits on the simple one-pager menu. Tap water comes in a cool glass carafe that resembles a plastic bottle. Very meta.

Service
Waiters are smartly turned out in aprons and look after us well, despite some issues with the pacing of dishes.

Ambience
The decor is well known for being sparse, clean and ultra modern. Interleading spaces have touches of marble, copper and trademark pale pink. It feels special and elegant inside. Make sure you shine your shoes!

Best for...
A trendy spendy dinner.

    At long last, I made it to Mulberry & Prince for dinner the other night and it was well worth the wait. The restaurant is small and vibrant. I loved the atmosphere and feel of the restaurant. Definitely got the trendy vibe going with the low hanging light bulbs and mix matched furniture. If you turn your head to the back you can see the open kitchen and the chefs at work. The menu changes seasonally and they have a small, but impactful beer and natural wine selection. The wines on the wine list range from sweet and fizzy to funky and confrontational. You won’t win any friends by saying the wine is “off” or “sour” (because that’s pretty much what it’s supposed to be), so come in with an open mind. I’m a big fan of the “less is more” concept and I think most of the dishes at Mulberry & Prince fall in this category. The chefs are young and they are exceedingly talented and thus the food is focused and energetic. All the food was delicious, but even better was how well it went with the wine. They have a good thing going on. Great service on top of that. I would say this place gets my stamp of approval. Mulberry & Prince, I’ll be back for you!
    Go here if you're interested to have an "experience" with food, rather than when you're starved for a big portion or meal. Take time to understand the dish and ask the waiter questions if you need to. Good decor and ambience.
    Always book in advance. Id reccomend a much higher average spend to really enjoy the space. We usually spend just over R1000 for two including a good bottle of wine. Its fine dining; gorgeous presentation, exquisite flavour and small sharable portions. Definitely try multiple dishes to fully appreciate the menu - which they change up every few months ive noticed. The service and decor combined creates a beautiful atmosphere - its perfect -understated elegance, refined features yet simple , you feel attended to but have comfort & privacy . I adore it!
    Very pricey for a very small amount of food, squid at R140 twelve tiny rings of squid on a few salad leaves. It does have very nice decor and feel to the place. Food wise I was very disappointed in presentation, taste and portion size
    This is how it works - girls go for the decor, and guys for the food. My fiancé and I went for a quick dinner before a show at the Fugard, we didn't book, so we sat at the bar, as pretty as the rest of the seats, but definitely less comfortable. Portions are small - think of it as a tapas menu where you have to order a few dishes and share.I'd definitely recommend the lamb ribs, and the pork was almost as good, but we left a little hungry. If we had more time we would've tried more dishes. Go with a few friends, book a table, and order a few dishes to share. No liquor license yet, so make sure to bring your own or be happy with sparkling water and a good coffee with dessert.
