Having honed their craft for many years at weekend destinations such as Market On Main, in 2015 the Argentine team behind this atmospheric grillhouse decided to open a restaurant that would show off the very best of Argentine cooking and hospitality. The location is a whole historic warehouse building on Maboneng’s main street Fox, which has been cleverly reconfigured into a large, yet warm and inviting space that mixes the rustic and the urban.
On the menu is a selection of the owners’ favourite dishes and a handful of easy-going South African wines. Don’t miss out on the homemade pork belly chorizo for starters and for mains steak is of course order of the day, best followed by a mouth-watering dulce de leche drenched dessert. Mains take quite some time to arrive so enjoy some of the freshly baked bread dipped in Che’s homemade chimichurri sauce while you wait.
With its mix of long tables and cosy corners, Che is a destination suited to both big groups and romantic downtown dinners a deux. From the owners who greet you at the door to the charming waitstaff, service is friendly and attentive, if a little slow at times.
