Cape Town

Mount Nelson Hotel,
76 Ornage Street,
Cape Town,
Tel: +27 214831737

Tall bay windows, a high domed ceiling, and a giant trompe-l'oeil mural – an inventive evocation of Table Mountain in days of yore -- are a befitting setting for the city's most historic and unashamedly colonial hotel. Executive chef Stephen Templeton presents such fashionable fare as smoked crocodile paired with a spinach-and-red-onion ragout, followed by a duo of venison cuts-- springbok and kudu -- on mashed potato, sauced with a pinotage (local redwine) reduction. There’s an authoritative wine list, offering the best South African vintages supplemented by splendid French champagnes, the perfect accoutrement for the industrious menu. Service is always with a smile, and there’s the ubiquitous view that all who enter the Mount Nelson Hotel inevitably fall in love with, meaning it’s not just the food that has diners reluctant to leave and promise to return.
