Stellenbosch, South Africa
Shady street seating, a statement fireplace and soothing elephant-grey paintwork all reflect the stripped back, casual food at this much-loved neighbourhood spot. Although it is as technically polished and ingredient-driven as ever, George Jardine’s cooking takes on a more accessible bent here than at some of his other restaurants. Think velvety tuna with kale and sesame Caesar salad, steamed sole with minty crushed peas and new season apricots with a dollop of thyme ice cream. An all-African wine list boasts some interesting blends and lesser-known varietals, including the excellent Beaumont New Baby.
