Cavalli: Seasonal-Inspired Dinners + Indoor Picnics

Cavalli: Seasonal-Inspired Dinners + Indoor Picnics

This feted stud and wine farm, with its waterside restaurant, is offering heavenly three-course dinners and indoor picnics for enjoyment at home.

Located in the Helderberg’s magnificent Cape Floral Kingdom, Cavalli (Italian for horses) is not merely famous for its magnificent livestock; it’s also regarded among foodies and scenery-seekers as a top-drawer wining-and-dining destination.

The restaurant is headed by chef Michael Deg, who is passionate about cooking with the seasons and letting the integrity of the ingredients shine. Michael loves cooking for vegans and vegetarians and draws inspiration from Cavalli’s own heirloom vegetable garden, creating an array of delectable dishes that are now available for delivery.
