The chef has crafted a menu to showcase the very best of West Coast cuisine and fresh local foods. He describes cuisine as “Exquisite world cuisine, with an African twist.”
Locally sourced seafood features prominently, alongside traditional South Africa cuisine – but there are meat and chicken dishes too. A special Chef’s Table also sits comfortably in the kitchen, where up to 10 guests can enjoy dining in situ as the chef creates tantalizing dishes.
Main meals, accompanied by select local wines, are served in the exotically appointed Saffron Restaurant – under crystal chandeliers and surrounded by candlelight and evocative artwork. The sea view Orchid Room is the setting for breakfasts and afternoon teas.
The Africa Bar is an eclectic mix of old Africa and new. Warmed in winter by an oversized fireplace, it’s a vibrant central meeting space to relax and socialize.
