Service, Food, and Scenery, what more could one want from a restaurant. We received a warm welcome from the greeter. It was a cool afternoon and we were undecided if we should be seated inside or out. The young lady who greeted us came up with a solution for our needs. She provided blankets and a warm drinks and we sat outside and watched for whales.
We could not decide on what to order off the menu, there were so many wonderful options. At the suggestion of our greeter we order the Meat Bobotie which is a traditional South African dish. I was concerned because my husband is a traditional salt and pepper person and this dish had different spices than he usually eats. The food was delicious and inviting to the eye. The Bobotie looked like it had a golden cheese topping, but we found out it was an egg topping and the pumpkin fritter that accompanied it were fried to a golden brown, with rice and sautéed vegetables. He loved every bit of his meal and so did I.
The scenery was beautiful, looking out on the Bay from a picturesque fishing village which is also known for it’s whale watching. While we were eating the whale crier came by and we got a chance to chatter with him. Also, several other restaurant guest who noticed we were not from the area stopped by our table and welcomed us to South Africa. Our greeter was most interesting and friendly, she had an English accent and we thought she was from England but was a local. The winds were high on the bay. We did not see any whales that day, but it was a wonderful afternoon spent on the terrace of the Burgundy Restaurant with good food, service, scenery and conversation.
