After a recent visit to HQ, it's safe to say the singular restaurant formula is still thriving. Their juicy sirloin steaks are always prepared exactly as ordered, consistency being a real strong suit in the kitchen. The same goes for the delicious Parmesan-crusted Portobello mushrooms for vegetarians, drenched in their oh-so-good Café de Paris butter, as well as the starter cos lettuce salad, drizzled in their signature Dijon mustard dressing that has everyone trying to figure out the recipe.

Food24 got invited to one of HQ's Fine Wining nights which takes place once a month. Each month a different wine farm gets involved for a wine pairing with HQ's regular menu offering, with the addition of a dessert. At R295 per person, its real value for money for three courses, each paired with quality wine.

For added festivities, there's always a social media competition running on the evening, so get creative with your photography and you could wine a bottle of wine.

Keep an eye out on HQ's social media for details on the next #HQFineWining dinner, which will be paired with Creation wines.

Here is the schedule for the upcoming Fine Wining dinners:

5th July - Creation
2nd August - Diemersdal
6th September - Ken Forrester
4th October - Buitenverwachting
1st November – Cederberg

The three course meal costs R295 per person, and includes welcome drinks and canapés on arrival.
