Enjoy contemporary Cape Town cuisine, designed to complement the range of De Grendel wines (available at cellar door prices from De Grendel Restaurant).
Contemporary Cape Town cuisine has put De Grendel Restaurant on the global map as a Top 10 fine dining restaurant in South Africa and Africa – one of just 584 restaurants worldwide to achieve a 2019 Travellers’ Choice Award from TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site.
The Graaff family’s passion for winemaking extends to the philosophy the team employs at the restaurant: the use of seasonal and locally sourced fresh produce, and a menu that is updated regularly, reflective of the unique culinary heritage of the Cape, and created with complementary De Grendel wines in mind.
The menu is based on classic ingredients served in creative flavour combinations and served with an inventive, modern edge. More recently the addition of a vegetable garden on the estate sees even more fresh produce on the plates at De Grendel Restaurant.
The Restaurant works under the guidance of Chef Ian Bergh. Ian is no slave to fad and food fashions and is an original locavore with great respect for the seasons and their bounty. His hands-on training and experience are rooted in classical cuisine, having worked with Franck Dangereux at La Colombe and further honed his skills at Kurland, Five Flies and Pure at Hout Bay Manor before joining De Grendel Restaurant in 2012.
September 2018 saw the introduction of De Grendel’s own organic vegetable garden.
Chef Ian Bergh and the team have been hard at work to ensure organic, fresh produce gets supplied to the kitchen throughout the year. The garden produces aubergine, tatsoi, spinach, corn, courgettes, onions, broad beans and an array of herbs. Water for the garden is supplied by the reverse osmosis plant on the farm.
