A seven-course degustation menu, composed by chef Sune Niemand, is served by trained hotel-school student waiters. No expense is spared on the fine silver cutlery and crystal glassware, which add to the intimate and romantic atmosphere. The set menu offers treats and masterpieces like the blue cheese souffle with plum preserve and a dark chocolate fondant with white chocolate veloute.
Knysna Quays Seafood restaurant
Casual and laidback, Knysna's bustling food emporium claims that it's "not exactly a restaurant, not exactly a bar, definitely not a deli... well, not exactly a deli... it’s an eating place, a drinking place and definitely a meeting place". Well, it's a good place to be if you enjoy fresh seafood and fancy a bit of shopping. 34 South is also "a gift shop, a clothing emporium, a food store, a fish monger and a bakery, too. And the finest wine shop this side of the grape curtain!"
Start with a platter of freshly shucked wild coastal oysters still tasting of salt and sea. Tuck into calamari (tubes, heads and steaks) and mussels (in and out the shell) done in many ways - in vinaigrette, masala, with peri-peri or with wine and garlic. The herring comes six ways, the fish pates four and the mezze too many ways to mention.
Traditional Greek, Spanish and Portuguese themes run through an eclectic menu that highlights Mediterranean flavours - with chicken, ostrich and vegetarian options for diners averse to seafood. With tastebuds still tingling from oysters and bubbly, the mains are sure to tantalise.
Signature dishes tempt with fresh linefish brought in through the Knysna heads, east-coast sole, linefish espetada, Portuguese sardines, jambalaya and seafood paella.
Constantia Fine Dining restaurant

The menu caters for all tastes and meat, seafood and vegetarian options are varied and plentiful. Only the freshest produce is used and this shines through in the bursts of flavour delivered on every plate. Try the imaginative Fish Tank, a mix of seafood served in a glass fish bowl - what an experience. The lamb trilogy is also a favourite and comprises lamb loin, lamb tortellini and a succulent lamb cutlet.
A great, extensive wine list and a range of other beverages including whiskeys and smooth cognacs are served to complement the cuisine.
This is the ideal setting for private functions and special occasions and proves to be a treat for the laymen, the foodie and the connoisseur.
Stellenbosch Fusion restaurant
Once upon a time, long long ago, there was a beautiful Victorian house in a small, romantic little town. It was situated at number 5 Ryneveld Street - a place we now call home.
When conceptualizing our new restaurant, we became aware of the special qualities of the number five. Five is the number of harmony and balance. Five is the number of perfection. Five is the number of senses in the human body - touch, taste, smell, hearing and sight. Five is the number of basic tastes - sweet, sour, salt, bitter and umami.
Our restaurant comprises five rooms namely the dining room, study, library, bedroom and radio lounge.
We welcome you to 5 Ryneveld, where we will provide you with an exciting dining experience, stimulating your five senses by exploring the five basic tastes.
5 Ryneveld is a cute and quirky meeting place for those embracing a playful and sophisticated atmosphere. It will be shaped by the friends, family and other warm-hearted people who meet, eat and play there.
Welcome home...welcome to 5 Ryneveld.
