Owner's description

Focusing more on the aesthetic of local, seasonal ingredients than deconstruction, newly appointed star chef Richard Carstens showcases Tokaras produce with applomb. Starters include myriad incarnations of tomato or trout, all artfully ardorned with squiggles of chorofil and sprinklings of micro-greens.

Following through, mains star meaty winners like ostrich fillet with root vegetables and curry jus, and vegetarian innovations like roast eggplant and fennel with spelt, asparagus, tofu and spiced tomato. Finishing it off is a selection of playful desserts. Optional wine pairing features a Tokara selection, sommeliers selection and South African premium selection.

    Delicious food & great service.
    Small portions of food. Attitude of Chef poor. Try other options
    Exceptional fine dining experience, one of my favourite restaurants in Stellenbosch.
    We were so lucky to have found this beautiful gem of a restaurant & estate while driving around looking for our Wedding Venue. We ended up falling in love with Tokara and had our Wedding Reception there last year, just after their stunning renovations! We also used their Wine Tasting Area as our venue for 'Cocktails and Canapés' for our guests while we had our photos taken. Top class food, beautifully presented.... Chef Richard can be very proud of himself and his team. Every dinner and lunch we have ever had here was fantastic. Beautiful surroundings... vineyards, art and beautiful modern decor. Our only 'crit' would be that the 'drinks menu' lacked a few ordinary drinks (like Appletizer and 'coolers', etc.), especially on a hot day during lunch time... but Tokara Wine is fantastic and goes down well with any meal. We look forward to having many "Anniversary Dinners" at Tokara in the future.
