Garden offers fine, but pricey dining
AN OASIS awaits you in the centre of Cape Town’s CBD. A lush and diverse garden with centuries-old trees, friendly squirrels, an aviary, functional herb and vegetable garden, fountains and rolling green lawns in which you can spend endless sunshine hours tucked away from the bustle of the business district.
I’m talking of course about the Company’s Garden.
But suppose you’re not too keen on carrying parcels of food or a cooler box of food for a picnic. Suppose you want fine dining under dappled sunlight with squirrels and pigeons fighting over the crumbs of your scraps. It’s all very organic.
So much so, that the playground area features “birds’ nests” installations for the kiddies to climb and hide in in the iconic design of Porky Hefer.
The Company’s Garden offers fine dining with superb café fare.
Their burgers are particularly divine and their children’s menu is vast and delicious.
It is on the pricey side, so it’s clear the menu is aimed at tourists, and you’d be hard-pressed to find salt-of-the-earth locals dining here.
All in all, it’s a very pleasant dining experience and the children are amply entertained by wooden carved animals and the life-sized chess board nearby.
