Franschhoek Dutch restaurant
The Dutch East Restaurant finds its home in the historic French Hugenot settlement town of Franschhoek in the Western Cape. Easily one of the most picturesque towns in South Africa, Franschhoek has also earned the reputation of being the culinary capital of the country. The Dutch East, with its fusion of traditional Dutch and eastern influence offerings, stands out as a unique eatery in a predominantly French cuisine environment.
The restaurant is relaxed and upmarket. The earthy interior manages to achieve a clean, minimalist simplicity in its décor that is stylish and inviting. High A-frame ceilings, red bricked walls and chandeliers set the mood.
The menu aims to present food that is both appetizing to the taste buds and appealing on the eye. With the restaurant philosophy of maintaining and complimenting the true flavour of the main ingredient of the dish by preparing it fresh and simply, Dutch East certainly plates up dishes that are a flavoursome feast for the senses.
Menu options include the likes of Seared Tuna with black sesame halva and a soy emulsion with whipped mango for starters, Lamb Shoulder with spinach cream, crackling and corn bites for mains and Fried Milk Tart with whipped cream and berry compote for dessert.
Paternoster Cape Malay restaurant
This informal eatery, sparsely decorated but exuding West Coast charm and ambiance, delights with homemade lunches prepared West Coast style with passion and creativity.
Tables dressed in afro pop plastic tablecloths, flanked by overgrown herbs in a old boat and shabby signs depicting old stories sit beside a chalkboard brimming with today’s specials.
From bobotie to pan-fried breaded bokkoms served with a poached egg and beurre blanc - Sandveld potato dumplings, with dune spinach, almonds and mushrooms. There is enough in one sitting to have you begging for more.
Dine in the pleasant courtyard wrapped in blooming bougainvilleas on succulent West Coast cuisine at Op eve Koep in Paternoster.
Franschhoek Dutch restaurant
Pierneef a la Motte Restaurant’s name is inspired by the great South African artist Jacob Hendrik Pierneef (1886 – 1957). Along with being able to view a collection of paintings by the legend in the restaurant, patrons can embark on a reminiscent culinary journey that explores the best of traditional Cape Winelands’ cuisine.
The restaurant setting is very much Cape Dutch with a contemporary spin. The emphasis on oak furnishings along with glass vases marries the beauty of the outdoor scenery perfectly, thereby creating a relaxed and subtly sophisticated ambience.
The menu is nothing short of a history lesson in the development of local traditional cooking. Expect to find the best traditional fare that is unashamedly South African. Menu items include starters of Boerbok terrine or the Koningsbrood soup. Mains serve up Pomegranate glazed Smoked Pork Belly and Impala Neck. And for dessert who can resist the Brandy Chocolate Pudding?
The wine list is extensive and offers a full selection of the farm’s own as well as other overseas brands. One can indulge in a food and wine pairing at the Tasting Centre.
The restaurant also has a children’s menu.
