The restaurant’s soft-spoken chef, Kobus van der Merwe (also Eat Out S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna Chef of the year) has long been a champion of SA’s indigenous ingredients, many of which he forages himself from the sand and rocks alongside the shimmering sea. 

Strandveld, or beach vegetation, is used in the finely crafted seven-course menu, which heroes hand-picked dune spinach, seaweed, soutlaai and more. The best way to enjoy a meal here is to open your mind to new tastes and textures, because the best dishes will be like nothing you’ve ever had before. Until you can get a booking yourself, get a glimpse inside this special restaurant.
