On the slopes of the majestic Simonsberg Mountains lies Quoin Rock Wine Estate, a serene sanctuary surrounded by magical gardens. It’s here, amidst the award-winning architecture of the estate, that you’ll find Gåte Restaurant, recently named 2019 Global Restaurant of the Year at The World Luxury Restaurant Awards.
The restaurant has been designed to take full advantage of the magnificent mountain views that, together with the stellar gastronomic offering, makes for an immersive Winelands experience. Head chef Nicole Loubser (formerly La Colombe, The Test Kitchen and Michelin-starred JAN in Nice, France) and her talented team have crafted an artful 14-course menu that can either be enjoyed as a five-course lunch or a seven-course dinner.
Inspired by the flavours of 14 countries that are skilfully combined with classic South African cuisine, the menu boasts dishes presented as Italy, France, Spain, Canada, Austria, Ukraine, Vietnam, New Zealand, Mexico, Japan, Greece, UK and Namibia.
Expect to be transported by dishes such as octopus with rice paper and teriyaki; fried chicken with popcorn and a sweetcorn espuma; upstream salmon with maple syrup and bacon dashi; pork with mushrooms and raspberry caviar; and Gruyère cheese with melon sorbet and melba toast, and lavender panna cotta and chamomile – to name a few.
And now, you and your lucky plus one could experience this gourmet magic, complete with expertly paired wine, by simply entering our competition. Good luck!
