Stellenbosch Fine Dining restaurant
In its name, Overture Restaurant alludes to “An introduction to great things”. This exquisite eating establishment is set on the equally breathtaking wine farm, Hidden Valley, in the quaint Stellenbosch countryside.
The menu is small and select, if not subject to change daily, to make the most of local seasonal produce. With award winning chef Bertus Basson running the show, patrons will certainly feel indulged in the culinary experience the restaurant offers.
The menu caters for the sophisticated palate with dishes to the likes of Duck Liver Parfait (to start), Confit Lamb Shoulder or Silverfish (for mains) and Date and Rum Souffle for dessert. All menu items are paired and complimented with wines selected from the farm.
For the foodies who eat to be swept away by the flow of flavours (not mention the eating with the eyes), Overture offers 3, 4 and 5 course menus (with or without wine). Feel free to take the advice of the in house sommelier, should one be undecided about wine choices.
Overture has been listed as one of Eat Out Magazine’s Top Ten Restaurants for the past two years.
