Le Sel @ The Cradle restaurant is architecturally magnificent with extensive outdoor seating and retractable doors that literally let the outside in. It comes with a long, wide verandah that endows diners with an 180° view of the game filled valley below, rolling Magaliesberg hills beyond and above that, blue sky.
Le Sel is just made for long lazy lunches or drinks and dinner at the end of the work week. You’re also able to take a splendid picnic lunch away with you in a basket (complete with an ice bucket to keep your drinks cold) and sit in a grassy patch in the shade of the white stinkwood trees by the stream. A candle-lit cellar, warmed by two fireplaces, is available for private feasts, evening and winter dining.
The menu changes every few weeks and because the venue is so conducive to it, converts into a weekend-long tapas menu on the last weekend of every month, as long as summer lasts.
Wine is handled thoughtfully and the concise wine list offers interesting and well priced choices – and that goes for the Cap Classique too. If you simply can’t decide, there are some very decent red, white and rosé wines to be had by the glass. Le Sel also stocks handcrafted beers from local microbreweries.
