La Petite Mort: A private dinner in Bo-Kaap

La Petite Mort: A private dinner in Bo-Kaap

An intimate setting to enjoy a homecooked meal.

Taking inspiration from the Cuban concept of paladar, which sees homeowners inviting guests into their homes for delicious homemade food, La Petite Mort is one such place in the Mother City.

Self-taught chefs and owners, André and Morné open their Bo-Kaap home to between 16 and 20 guests every second Saturday for a lovingly made three-course meal with wine pairings. The intimate space is great for groups of friends, or even someone hoping to make some new ones.

The menu is decided on by the chefs and is based on a theme such as September’s Spring and West Coast menus and August’s Mission Chinese and Serve it Forth menus. The theme and courses are revealed a week before the dinner date. Those with special dietary requirements can be catered for when requested.

Booking is required and can be done by sending an email to

Date Every second Saturday
Time 7.30pm
Cost R320
Location 2nd floor, 73b Rose Street, Bo-Kaap

    We are a Wine/Dinner club, The Immortal LIvers, that meet once a month for good food and wine. Our next dinner is Saturday the 21 st of May at 19:00 and your place sounds amazing. Our budget is usually R 300, but if it is with wine pairing, it should not be a problem at all! We will be between 16 and 18 people. Please let us know if you would be able to accommodate us, sounds like a great experience. Regards Emile and Melinda
