Yummy bites

Radicchio stuffed with gorgonzola, or moose confit with pineapple salsa: the chefs of the Savoy Cabbage love to experiment with food. The culinary creations of this stylish restaurant are innovative and playful, but most of all delicious. The kitchen only uses ethical ingredients such as organic seasonal vegetables, free-range meats and delicious home-made ice-cream. The menu changes daily, depending upon the products available. Be sure to take a moment between courses to notice that the lamps are shaped like Savoy cabbages.

Estate of mind

Dining on the Rust en Vrede Estate in Stellenbosch is a dream for many. The Danish Queen enjoyed an official lunch here in 1996, but you don’t have to be of royal descent to try its splendid cuisine. Order the 6-course meal and sample surprising dishes with matching South African wines. The style of the food can be described as classic French while the wines come directly from the surrounding vineyards, with an emphasis on reds such as cabernet, shiraz and merlot.

Roundhouse dining

The expansive views over Camps Bay and the Atlantic Ocean were the reasons for the Dutch East India Company to build this watch house in 1786. Guests of The Roundhouse can now enjoy these gorgeous vistas in a historic setting. The kitchen is modern with both Asian and African influences, while the chefs serve unique creations such as crispy beetroot carpaccio with horseradish and shimeji mushrooms. In summer, the garden terrace is a great place to enjoy a long lunch with matching wines and accompanied by the fresh sea breeze.
