This innercity hotel rolls out the romantic carpet.

Situated across from two of the city’s most historic buildings in what was once the city’s central banking district, Taj Cape Town embraces its Indian heritage, marrying it with a modern and elegant approach to hospitality. Marble gleams in the lobby, setting the scene for a sumptuous experience, whether you’re here for dinner, a treatment at the award-winning J Wellness Circle or a luxurious and romantic stay.

Taj Hotel: Valentines Day View

This Valentine’s, the hotel is rolling out the romantic carpet for couples, with special multi-course menus at both its restaurants.

Mint Restaurant & Wood-Fired Grill

Taj Hotel: Valentines Day Setting

The quintessentially urban Mint Restaurant, with its light and bright interiors spilling out onto a terrace on St George’s Mall, is offering a six-course Valentine’s Menu designed to delight. Expect a selection of tasty titbits on your table – a bruschetta basket, young prawns, a Parma ham and melon log, and skewers of bocconcini and peach – followed by an amuse bouche of tomato and strawberry gazpacho. For starters, choose between crayfish or asparagus thermidor, rounded off by a palate-cleansing rose champagne sorbet. Mains are a choice of beef Wellington, confit chicken or a goat’s cheese and grape ravioli. Round off your evening with something from the desert trolley… Tiramisu maybe, or a decadent dark chocolate marquise?

Bombay Brasserie

Taj Hotel: Valentines Day Dining

Bombay Brasserie’s delectable modern-Indian fine-dining cuisine stars on a Valentine’s menu that includes nibbles of kurkuri bhindi (fried okra) and spicy nuts on your table, an amuse bouche of tamatar shorba (tomato soup) and a choice between a pulled lamb or paneer curry for starters. A masala lemon and mint sorbet cleanses the palate before the mains – tender chicken aloo gosht (meat and potato curry) or nargisi kofta (lamb and egg curry), with sides that include dal makhani, beetroot roti and naan breads. The sweet ending features shahi tukda (a bread and milk pudding) and rose kulfi, with a petit four to round off the feast.
