Strand Fine Dining restaurant
Alex Garden Restaurant is situated close to the beach and offers a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of this popular seaside town.
The historical building, indigenous garden and the exquisite decor combine to create an extra special dining experience.
The menu is small but does not disappoint with starters like seared kudu carpaccio drizzled with mustard dressing and served with parmesan shavings and tomato concassé, and a twice baked goats cheese soufflé with a homemade tomato chutney. The tempura prawns with chilli mayonnaise and ginger and butternut soup with croutons are also not to be missed.
Try your palate at some game with the pan-fried blesbok rolled in mixed peppercorns with a juniper berry sauce. The panfried sole in a foamy butter sauce with lemon and parsley is a real melt-in-your-mouth option. A more traditional option is the vegetarian lasagne, rich in flavour and extremely decadent.
Good food, a great setting and reasonable prices can be found here.
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.
