Tanja Kruger of Makaron at Majeka House

Modern cuisine grounded in French technique in a sophisticated design conscious space located in the 5 Star Majeka House. The multi-course tasting menu or the a la carte menu, under the watchful eye of Chef Tanja Kruger, makes for an eating adventure to delight all senses. Tanja’s dedication to food is seen in her competitive cooking background, as well as the kitchen herb garden and the possibilities she has grasped onto with the fruit trees on the property. The restaurant’s resident sommelier gives the wine and food experience more depth as flavours and pairings are can considered in the early phases of developing dishes.
