Chef Chantel Dartnall is South Africa's rising princess of posh nosh. She offers both a la carte and tasting menus. Any meal at her restaurant (set inside a garish pastiche of a North African castle) is pricey but worth every penny. Influences are eclectic and styles vary but Dartnall's food is always delicate yet layered with clear flavours and high technical skill. Many find her plating pretty while others argue that it is overly fussed with. We think that her innovative food resembles a work of art and tastes even better.

The restaurant has garnered dozens of awards over the years, including 2015 Restaurant of the Year at the Restaurant Association of South Africa (Rasa) Rosetta Awards and 2015 American Express Platinum Fine Dining Award and is regularly found in the Top 10 best restaurants in South Africa at the Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards

For lunch you need to set aside a day as it is a 45-minute drive from Johannesburg. You can also spend the night at the small and eclectically decorated luxury hotel.
