A story about food. Imagine the perfect dinner and cherishing every moment of it. How this can be accomplished, is the question we ask ourselves continuously.


Conveying South Africa from a culinary and lifestyle point of view is our main objective. Regional products and a sustainable approach in combination with global experience is the essence of our philosophy. In addition, we stay away from convenience products and practise an artisanal cuisine.

Homemade – from the bread to the pickles, from our garden to your plate.


Half full, half empty – but always a sure companion to guide you through the evening. You will find your perfect match with an ever changing selection of South African wines, craft beers or homemade lemonades.


Irrespective of food & drinks the most influential part of a great evening are the people we are allowed to spend it with. The best meals that we’ve been allowed to enjoy, were always those in which we shared food and conversation, in which we had a sense of home away from home.
