Lady Phillips Restaurant

Lady Phillips Restaurant Review

In summer you need to reserve a table three weeks in advance at this idyllic country restaurant on the Vergelegen Estate. In pleasant weather ask for a table on the terrace, shaded by liquidambar trees. Consider starting with kudu carpaccio marinated in teriyaki sauce and served with a mustard-and-rosemary vinaigrette before moving on to homemade smoked-salmon pasta. The delicious lemon-thyme-marinated lamb rump is served with potatoes gratin and baby vegetables in season. Of the wide dessert selection, sticky-date-and-macadamia-nut pudding with cream and maple sauce is noteworthy, calorie-packed, and hugely delicious. If you can't get a reservation, head to the estate's Rose Terrace during summer for light meals or a picnic underneath the camphor trees (around R165).
