This little Seapoint spot is my new favourite restaurant. With large fireplaces in every room, an exquisite menu and a beautifully complementary wine list, they are well worth a visit this the freezing Cape Town winter. 
So last Wednesday I gathered my two favourite fellow foodies, my "skoonsissy" Sophie and best friend and fashion blogger, Little Miss Ivy, Nicky Van Zyl and off we went to sample the new winter special. 6 courses for R165. Here are some visuals to get you excited:

First course: Salt and pepper hake, pea puree, roasted garlic aioli, pickled onions  

 Second course:  Artichoke and potato soup, bĂ©arnaise relish, mushroom brioche  
 Third course: Pan-fried line fish shellfish foam , fricassee of gnocchi, ginger, baby gem  
 Forth course:  Beef sirloin, mash, smoked onion puree, mushroom crumble, red wine ‘caviar’
 Fifth course:  ‘Fried egg’ and coconut doughnut, passion fruit curd, lime leaf cream  
Sixth course: Carrot cake, walnut ice cream, carrot puree, cream cheese frosting, coriander cress  

Our waiter, Blaise, went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful, relaxed evening. The service was impeccable.
The menu will change again in a few weeks so keep a close eye on My Tastebuddies to see what Chef Henry has up his sleeve for next month. At R165 its well worth an evening out.

Bon Apetite!
