A classic winter special at Mount Nelson

This winter, celebrate a gracious bygone era, half a century ago. Inspired by dishes served in the First Class dining rooms of the Union-Castle Shipping Lines, as well as the cuisine from The Nellie’s much admired Executive Chef from 1964 – 1990, Hans Kuhnel, our modern day Chef Rudi Liebenberg has put together a fabulous old-fashioned menu that will warm and delight cold winter bones.

Seafood cocktail
Consommé croûte au pot
A clarified soup with a croute, root vegetables and oxtail
Filet de boeuf à la Richelieu
Roasted fillet of beef with stuffed mushroom and stuffed tomato, served with castle potatoes and braised lettuce
Sole à la Colbert
A classic dish, de-boned, crumbed and deep fried sole, and served with herb butter
Poire belle Hélène
A chocolate poached pear
Crêpe Suzette
a crêpe with a sauce of caramelised sugar, orange and Grand Marnier, served flambé

And don’t forget: after dinner, a spine-warming fire place and cocktail menu in Planet Bar is always there to keep you warm.
