American chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten claims to have invented molten chocolate cake (fondant) in New York in 1987. However, French chef and chocolatier Jacques Torres disputes this claim, arguing that such a dish had already existed in France.

Superb!!! 🙂 Last but not least, our waiter BUSI did a perfect job. Always there for us and incredible friendly. Ask for him!!! THX a lot for an unforgettable evening!
What a superb experience and meal at this wonderful establishment. The calamari and chorizo starter which my 2 sons had, the mains of braised pork, beef fillet, prawn risotto and my mouth watering pan seared kingklip, were all so tasty, fresh and beautifully plated. Our Simonsig Kaapse Vonkek complemented our meal perfectly. Sheldon , our waiters was brilliant, attended to our every need and was at our beck and call constantly. All in all, delightful evening, and we will definitely be back and recommend this fine eatery to all.
Great experience from the start, welcomed by Sidu – I followed his recommendations for food and drink, with lam racks and wine, which were an amazing experience. The place has wonderful ambiance, and Sidu and the rest of the personnel were professional and pleasant.
We stayed at the hotel behind the restaurant and chose to dine there on the last minute. What an amazing surprise! We were welcomed by the staff with an excellent service. The ambiance of the restaurant was very nice. The food was amazing (the looks and the taste!) We asked our waitress to help us pick the wine for the dishes we chose and it was excellent wine a perfect match with the food.

If you like value for money, tasty and well-presented food and personal service, this is the place to have breakfast. Best poached eggs we’ve tasted anywhere in Cape Town. (And we all know they can be a disaster if not timed perfectly.) Walk-ins welcome. Definitely recommended.
I stayed at the Stellenbosch Hotel and ate here twice for dinner during my stay and every morning for the breakfast. Both dinners, the food and wine were excellent and the service was friendly and just attentive enough.
Serendipity….the dictionary description is an unplanned, fortunate discovery. And that is the perfect way, to sum up our experience. My partner and I originally lucked upon this nirvana while looking for a place to have a refreshing beverage. One drink became three while being thoroughly entertained by the “Doctor” behind the bar.
