Equus Dine at Cavalli, winner of the prestigious Eat Out Style Award – is now a sought-after destination for both local and international foodies and has developed a loyal following of discerning patrons.

Chef Hylton Espey’s approach to cuisine can be described as ‘modern, nature inspired cuisine’, inspired by a focus on heritage and drawing upon the landscapes, flora and fauna of Southern and Continental Africa.

The restaurant is an exciting pilot project with the Green Building council of South Africa and is set to be the first Green Star rated restaurant and exhibition space in the country. Designed by the Architectural Team of Bouwer Architects and Lauren Smith, the passively designed building uses Geothermal energy of the dam to heat and cool, Solar Energy and a waste water treatment plant to recycle 93% of the estates water along other initiatives to encourage sustainability.

The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner 4 days a week, Wednesday through Saturday for Bistro Lunch and Fine Dining dinner. Sunday for Fine Dining lunch only.

We had lunch at the Bistro 29 August 2015. We ordered the Rib-eye steak which was suggested by our waiter and the pork belly and an additional portion of potato wedges. The pork belly was delicious but the steak was tough and full of sinews, basically uneatable. We are still waiting for our wedges (the waiter forgot to put the order in). After we complained to the waiter about the steak, he came back that he reported it to the chef ... and that was it! No apologies, nothing, which is very disappointing. When a person pays such a lot of money for a meal – you would really expect that the food was of the highest standard. Not at Cavalli’s bistro! It was a totally an unsatisfactory and substandard experience. The gardens are nice though. Oh I nearly forgot, 2 hours later at home, I was as sick as a dog.

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.
