Foxcroft in Constantia: Creative and Delicious Neo-Bistro Dishes

Part of the La Colombe triumvirate, Foxcroft is undoubtedly one of the city's stand-out gems.

Since it opened in 2016, Foxcroft continues to dazzle diners with its inspired and utterly sensational dishes. This refined gem in the charming High Constantia Centre is the sister restaurant of La Colombe (and La Petite Colombe in Franschhoek) and is co-owned by Glen Foxcroft Williams’ and feted La Colombe chef-proprietor Scot Kirton. The interiors are chic yet undeniably cosy, with a bar area (formerly the on-site bakery) creating the perfect space for pre-dinner aperitifs. We love the mid-century-modern-inspired chairs, wood panelling throughout, open pass (with an eye into the kitchen).

Glen’s heavily inked forearm bears the word soigné – “prepared with great attention to detail; showing sophisticated elegance; carefully or elegantly done” – a principle that underpins every single dish that comes out of his open kitchen. Though the vibe at Foxcroft is more laidback than its buttoned-up sisters, the food is equally exceptional. We recommend everything on the set menu! It’s really good value: two generous tapas, a main and a dessert for R435 – undoubtedly the most memorable meal I have eaten in ages.
