Owner's description

Named Racine, which is French for ‘back to your roots’, the restaurant will serve up bistro / brasserie-style food in a very relaxed and interactive way. The eatery is aptly named to reflect that Reuben started his career right there on the Chamonix Wine Farm.

    Me and three of my closest friends had the privilege of having lunch at this great restaurant a while ago. The restaurant is beautifully situated in a small little piece of forest - like a Hobbit house. The menu is perfectly balanced, the staff and service immensely interested and friendly. And then the Food. The food is beyond amazing. Rib eye steaks grilled to perfection and the most gorgeous mussels I have ever eaten in my life. The whole experience was made complete by a something sweet called Salted Caramel Parfait. In.My.Life.I.Have.Never.Made.Noises.While.Eating. This time I did. Back in June when I visit Cape Town :)
    I’d like to thank you (and the staff of Chamonix) for the exceptional service that was delivered during our stay from Friday 24 April – Sunday 26th April. My fiancé and I travel a lot and as locals, we were utterly blown away at the fantastic service received from you and the staff esp Brywell . Thank you for accommodating us and ensuring that my fiancé’s birthday is celebrated in the best way possible.
    It is not often that I take to social media to publicise bad dining experiences, but after a really poor food experience I felt compelled to do so. Our waiter Melussi was amazing and certainly deserves heaps of praise from the management. The same cannot be said of the chef. We had no option to return everything excepting the mussels (which were delicious) , duck salad and squid. All of our meat dishes were over cooked and below standard. Even the simple Greek salad was smothered with a honey mustard salad dressing and when returned came back floating in balsamic vinegar!

    We have great respect for Reuben and have had some memorable meals at his Restuarant Reubens, but unless his presence is felt in the kitchen of some of his newer establishments his reputation will be destroyed.

    Had the privilege to eat at Racine today for the first time. Setting fabulous! My wife raved about the sirloin steak prepared exactly as requested. I had the Miso braised beef cheek with roasted marrow bone as a side. What a wonderful combination. Probably the most tender meat I ever tasted. I have to warn Racine that next time I may be tempted to order the marrow bone 3 or 4 times! Something special. I have to compliment Racine that the price of the Chamonix wine is exactly the cellar price.
