Description: Cavalli’s approach to cuisine can be described as ‘modern​, ​nature inspired cuisine’, inspired by a focus on our heritage​ as it draws upon​ the landscapes, flora and fauna of Southern and Continental Africa. ​ The menu ​seeks to​ take diners on a ​gastronomic ​journey, ​touching on points of nostalgia paired with an expertly crafted local and international wine list, artisanal cocktail, craft beer and a notable selection of single malt whiskeys. Herbs and a selection of vegetables on the menu are grown in the Estate's self sustained heirloom garden. The restaurant is set to establish itself as a premier fine dining destination locally and internationally and is now open for lunch and dinner 4 days a week, Wednesday through Saturday for relaxed, generous Bistro lunch and Fine-Dining Dinner and Sunday Fine-Dining Lunch.

Well priced fine dining in a beautiful setting. Great art gallery on premises in a modern architecture building situated on an equestrian estate. Late afternoon evening best time to visit.

Pork belly and Bavavoir rather ordinary. Service OK. Ambiance good. Not good value. Overall disappointing after a big build up.

The tasting menu was fantastic, only the the fried oyster was a little to oily, and the portions of the desert to big, otherwise the food was excellent, unfortunately the wines could not match the the food. I recommend the tasting menu and get wines from the sommelier who is very knowing and has been around for a few years. Anyway a delight

Dear Dr. Schmaehling,

Thank you very much for your review! We are always pleased to hear feedback from our guests.

Our sommelier and head chef worked together to make the tasting menu, I have forwarded this feedback to both of them as we are always open for any advice. There is always room for growth and we sure want to grow!

We look forward to hosting you again in the future, be sure to join us for our Winter Work Lunch Special, our new 5-course Winter Menu or our recently updated A-la-carté menu.

Kind regards,

My husband and I had a fantastic time at Cavalli. Our pairing dinner was amazing and Grant provided excellent service. Grant was so professional, did a great job and made our visit extra special. Thank you, Grant! We highly recommend this restaurant and they are very lucky to have Grant on-board.
