A good experience!

We attended a cooking course at Africa Relish and had lunch and dinner as part of the spoils. A lovely setting that allows for a good learning experience. Well equipped to deal with cooking classes up to 10 at a time. It was boiling hot and the pool came in handy. Would recommend you make use... read more

Having been let down on a reservation at another venue we managed to get a table at African Relish. The venue and setting is fantastic and the dinning space opens onto a well trimmed lawn but not before a huge open fireplace with flickering flames catches your eye. The Chef and team can be seen at work in the open... More

Better to make reservation in the restaurant. Prince Albert is very fashionable. When we have been there, the restaurant was fully booked. The menu was extremely short. Only few dishes, but the quality is remarkable. The dining room is opened on the kitchen so you can see your plates getting ready. Contemporary decore with some Karoo things. We will be... More

The setting is stunning - a big kitchen, open to the outside, surrounded by a beautiful garden of olive trees. We did a Flavours of the East cooking course, with Jaco as our charming instructor and Donovan giving a hand. We made a fabulous 3-course menu for ourselves. The only minor criticism was that the menu was rather ambitious for... More

Lovely venue - stylish and elegant - that opens once a week for dinner. Pizzas are Italian in style with crispy thin base and various traditional toppings like anchovy, avocado, ham, olives and artichoke. Great that you can bring your own wine for a small corkage fee.

A cooking demonstration followed by wining and dining. Inexpensive and informative. Could have been more hands on.

This charming little restaurant only opens once a week in the evenings (it operates as a cooking school). We had a delightful meal with plenty of choices and a reasonable priced wine list.

I did a 2 week bespoke cooking course covering all the basics of cookery with African Relish and stayed in their accom for the duration. It was fantastic! The staff and facilities were all excellent. Virna, Rogaya and Collette kept the energy levels up and passed on a lot of tips you wouldn’t read in a cookery book – they... More
