Restaurant image
Led by talented local chef, Henrico Grobbelaar, Cavalli’s approach to cuisine can be described as ‘a contemporary take on the classics’, contextually driven, and encompassing a combination of freshness, flavour and flair.

Real, humble food cooked textbook style, paired with an expertly crafted local and international wine list, artisanal cocktail, craft beer and a notable selection of single malt whiskeys.

Herbs and a selection of vegetables on the menu are grown in the Estate's self sustained heirloom garden.

The restaurant is set to establish itself as a premier fine dining destination locally and internationally and is now open for lunch and dinner 4 days a week, Wednesday through Saturday for relaxed, generous Bistro lunch and Fine-Dining Dinner and Sunday Fine-Dining Lunch.

Open:
Lunch Wednesday - Sunday
Dinner Wednesday - Saturday

      Absolutely delighted to have found this restaurant. It is perfection in every way. The food was outstanding;the scenery the best in the world;the gardens, the buildings, all quite exceptional.

      I made a reservation for lunch, first of all I had to wait untill 1.30 while the table was availabity before. After being seated I waited more that 15 minuten before i was offered a glass of water a menu or whatsoever. All the other people followed a sorry i didn.t see you course. After 15 minuten I decided to leave the restaurant.. So go for the view for the artwork for the winetasting.. But make sure you eat before having lunch.

      Had lunch at EQUUS on Saturday and it is probably the best dining experience I have ever had. The venue is spectacular with a fine attention to design and the food was simply exquisite. I really enjoyed the fact that the chef was completely hands on and personally inspected every plate leaving the kitchen and checked every plate at completion of the meal. Well done EQUUS - I will recommend this to all my friends.
