Somerset West Contemporary restaurant
Located in the Trading Post Complex on Myburgh Street in Somerset West you will find Chez Max. This restaurant offers continental food in a warm and traditional atmosphere.
The food is unpretentious but amazingly well-prepared and tasty. Starters include dishes like a trio of prawns, homemade chicken liver and bacon pate, soup of the day and risotto.
Be sure to give the slow-roasted belly of pork a try. This dish is served with crispy crackling, Hanepoot glazed apples and aromatic. Another mouthwatering main is the char-grilled beef fillet, moist and tender, with a blue cheese potato cake, caramelised baby onions and rosemary. A variety of veal and fish dishes are also available.
A great wine list complements the menu and instead of choosing from a 'great wine list', you pick straight from the wine rack.
Enjoy upmarket surrounds and upmarket food without the upmarket attitude that can be the bain of many a restaurant.
Stellenbosch Contemporary restaurant
Guardian Peak is essentially a winery - with a restaurant. From entering the farm, following the road through the vineyards and finding the restaurant nestled against the breathtaking backdrop of the Helderberg Mountain, one will soon buy into the “living the lifestyle” concept that drives this establishment.
If it’s modernity that one seeks, then Guardian Peak will certainly meet expectations. The open plan restaurant boasts a demonstration kitchen, allowing guests to experience the energy and synergy that takes place in a professional kitchen. The menu’s contemporary interpretation of ‘wine with food’ pairing (and not the other way round) leaves no room for ignorant choices when it comes to marrying food with drink.
The menu, which is seasonal, is wickedly extravagant. Besides a fare of traditional venison and lamb, patrons will be hard pressed not to succumb to temptations of Courgette & Goats cheese soufflé, Roasted Apple and Raisin Pork Belly or Quail Breast stuffed with bacon and sage.
Soak up the South African sunshine on the terrace or feel right at home with the warmth of the fireplace in winter, either way Guardian Peak is a great lunch location.
Claremont Indian restaurant
This small, quaint restaurant serves delicious Indian cuisine in an unpretentious, yet warm and homely, setting. Add attentive, quick service and you can be sure of a diamond in the ruff.
The menu offers everything you would expect of an Indian restaurant, but the dishes have a distinct South African twist to them. A favourite is the classic Butter Chicken, melt-in your-mouth chicken smothered in a mild, creamy sauce infused with just the right amount of spices. For the more adventurous there is the Durban Lamb Curry, a bit hotter than most. Seafood lovers can enjoy a delectable prawn curry and the Tandoori Chicken is a must. The dishes are served with soft, fluffy, aromatic rice and the traditional sambals.
Finish your meal with a proudly South African malva pudding, just to add to the decadent flavours.
Perima's is open for dinner on Sundays and Mondays and for lunch and dinner from Tuesdays to Saturdays.
