Fodor's Expert Review Readers

$$ Tulbagh Eclectic

The historic residence of the former church reader (lay-person trained to preach and lead worship) makes a cozy setting for this restaurant with consistently high-quality food and service. Carol Collins's innovative fare offers sophisticated contrasts, although she keeps presentation simple and appetizing. Her small seasonal menu changes daily. Dinner could start with a deep-fried whole onion with sweet chili sauce, or kudu carpaccio with fresh asparagus and hollandaise sauce. If the delicious wildebeest with gooseberry and amarula sauce is on the menu, do not miss out! The flavors of the popular ice-cream trio change often, but you can expect coconut and sesame or ginger and rooibos tea, or even curry and balsamic vinegar flavors. The carefully chosen and well-priced wine list reflects regional labels.
