First of all the food was amazing. If you've never tried Malay food it is a cross between african and indian and very yummy! Moreover the Cape offers fun face painting for a uniquely african experience. Many exotic meats to try as well.

Had a typical Cape Malay lunch in one of the restaurants there and had the opportunity to chat with the owners of the establishment who gave us an insight into their history.... More

Our gem of a chef, Martha Williams, needs a platform to show off her talents and we have therefore launched “The Cape Malay Experience.” You can book a Cape Malay evening which will be hosted, explained and served by Martha and her team. Our Malay restaurant and demonstration kitchen is in a cosy private dining area. This local cuisine restaurant is a unique dining experience in authentic Cape Malay food and an exciting choice of traditional taste treats await you. Spicy, rustic colours create a pleasant Eastern ambience. Cape Malay cooking is unique to the Western Cape.
