Local Cuisine


Head chef Chris Mare creates a unique menu of re-imagined local cuisine, adding his own interpretation to favourites such as Bobotie and West Coast Mussels. For local diners this means a nuance of “tuisgemaakde” nostalgia; and for visitors an exploration of South Africa on a plate.

Designed for sharing

The exquisite considered menu is comprised of six starters and mains, and three desserts; which are interspersed with surprise tastes and treats. In addition, there are show-stopper house specialties – all designed for sharing. 

On the menu

Starters include Buchu Cured Gemsbok with sour figs, and Cape Octopus with West Coast mussels. Mains offer South African favourites, including Pulled Lamb Bobotie and Pens and Pootjies with braised pork belly, trotter skilpadjies, marogo, pampoen pofferties and malay curry sauce.

Wine delights

Our impressive wine list is curated by award-winning Head Sommerlier, Luvo Ntezo – containing unique and rare finds and well-known labels. Our resident Sommeliers will guide your wine choices, and are on-hand to share insights and stories throughout your dining experience.

Inspired by African sunsets

Ochre is inspired by the rich colours found in spices like turmeric, cinnamon and paprika that are used in traditional Cape Malay cuisine. These colours are threaded through the décor and experience, summoning the warm earth tones found in our unforgettable African sunsets.
