Cape Town - Fine Dining in the City Center
Touch down in Cape Town, and the clear ocean air immediately unblocks your senses. Table Mountain stands imperious, Atlantic Ocean waves roll against white beaches, and there’s always a sublime view to enjoy. Your private driver will greet you at the airport and you will transfer to the V & A Waterfront. After a relaxing afternoon, you will head out to one of the best restaurants in Cape Town. Experimental molecular cooking mixes with a plethora of traditional local flavors, creating a menu that changes with the seasons. Picture smoked seabass with celeriac extraction, frozen turnip and mustard, and lime compressed apple; local licorice-cured wagyu biltong, cauliflower, and truffle cheese black garlic salsa. The menu changes regularly, but these kinds of flavors await, and dinner comes with a wine pairing, taking you through nine exceptional small courses, each tailored to build upon the lingering flavors of the last.
