Gary Ruthven, the executive chef, describes his cuisine as
"modern cosmopolitan with a subtle South African influence". Fresh seasonal ingredients with wholesome flavours and a generous dash of passion are the recipe for his culinary success.
Gary incorporates traditional elements of the Cape West Coast in ample seafood dishes, adding his modern spin to each creation. Not new to the industry, Gary’s relentless drive for culinary perfection has taken him through the top kitchens of Cape Town’s finest establishments, including the Mount Nelson Hotel and the V&A Waterfront’s Table Bay Hotel.
Gary has also cooked for an impressive line-up of local and international celebrities and stars, including the likes of Robbie Williams.
