Asoka Dinner Special: R195 For Three Courses

Asoka Dinner Special: R195 For Three Courses

Set under the eaves of a revamped Victorian-era house, Asoka is an ambient bar and restaurant built around a 150-year-old, fairy-lit olive tree on Kloof Street. The eclectic décor provides the perfect setting for an evening of decadent food and drinks.
Tuesday Jazz Nights, when Mr Keys & The Funky Munks take to the stage for a two-hour set, are sold-out affairs. But, rest assured, the cool cocktails and lip-smacking sharing plates (inspired by earth, water, wind, fire and nirvana) are equally as indulgent on other nights!

Grub & Vine Winter Special: 2 Courses for R275

“Small, vibey, honest, unpretentious,” is how chef Matt Manning describes his bustling bistro on Bree Street (in his signature Essex accent, no less). In addition to the beautifully prepared and executed dishes, the interiors are characterful and extremely Instagramable – distressed concrete floors, avian prints, rattan chairs, atmospheric hanging lights and pot plants everywhere. And, as for the grub – and vine – both out of the top drawer!

The Vine Bistro at Glenelly: Under 30s Special Offer

The Vine Bistro at Glenelly: Under 30s Special Offer

The special R290 for a wine-paired three-course meal, including water and coffee.
About The Vine Bistro Housed within a state-of-art building at Glenelly Estate, this Christophe Dehosse-owned gem is headed by chef Alex Rykaart, whose concise French-inspired menu changes regularly. If the sun is out, sit under the pergola at one of the long tables on the deck and enjoy beautiful views of the vineyards and surrounding hills. On chilly days, gather in the elegant restaurant dining room.
The deal If you are between 18 and 29, and partial to gourmet fare accompanied by award-winning wine, breathtaking views, and warm Winelands hospitality, this one’s for you. Les Jeunes a Table (directly translating to “the youth at table”) has arrived in Stellenbosch! Originated in France to generate a passion for quality food and wine among the youth by making it more affordable, accessible and fun, this rendition is not to be missed!
Under 30s will be treated to three delectable courses served with tasting portions of wine, including water and coffee, for R290 per person (normally priced at R420). Waiters will make a special effort to explain the dishes in detail and hopefully spark a lifelong passion.
