Constantia, Cape Town
Open since: 2016
Position in the Top 10 last year: New entry
Former Test Kitchen head chef Ivor Jones and his business partner, 2017 Eat Out S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna Chef of the Year Liam Tomlin, created huge excitement in the local food scene when they opened their modern tapas restaurant at Beau Constantia wine farm in November 2016. An ever-changing menu of beautifully crafted small plates feature layered flavours. Delight in dishes like home-smoked trout with burrata, or zingy tuna with lime-cured cream cheese, before moving onto an exceptional risotto or a lively, robust roasted pork belly. An ending of wild honey and lavender crème is truly special.
