Cape Colony Restaurant
Cape Colony Restaurant Review
There's a new chef at the helm of this elegant restaurant, one of the most glamorous rooms in the city. The tall bay windows, a high domed ceiling, and a giant trompe-l'oeil mural of Table Mountain creates a fitting setting for the city's most unashamedly colonial hotel. This is a good place to come for a stylish night out, enhanced by a band. Although the menu changes regularly, expect geranium (fynbos) and lemon–cured salmon with prawn and avocado salad, or naartjie (local citrus) and rooibos- (bush tea–) smoked duck breast with vetkoek (deep-fried savory pastry), moskonfyt (sugar-preserved melon often flavored with ginger), and duck rillette (shredded confit). Game is in the form of springbok, where the loin is honey glazed and cooked with beetroot. The dish is served with a shank pie, butternut-squash puree and a chakalaka-stuffed onion.
