During our stay at the Days At Sea Beach Lodge we mostly stayed for dinner because the ambience is absolutely stunning. Such a beautiful and cosy place is not open to the public. What a pity. But try to phone them and maybe the chef Marise Du Preez will give you the opportunity for a table.
We are dining out all over the world and also the Cape is vibrant and creative regarding restaurants , but the Days At Sea menues are really inspiring. They carve a different menu every day and adding some wonderful surprises as pallette cleansers.

Zabaligione on Strawberry sambals with fresh pepper....

a Dreissigacker Riesling 2003 from the Rhine area Germany,
a MR Raats di Compostella ( 96 points in the new parker and rated as the best south african wine at present!),
a Raats Cabernets Franc 2004
and for 10 people a very moderate bill for what we were having....

This was one of the most beautiful places on our South Africa travel. The food was simply incredible good. They offered a 3 course menu - home made terrine of foie gras, coquilles st. jacques in a safran cream and fresh strawberries marinated in pepper/ grand manier with fresh baiser- for R 300 . Unbelievable! You have to make a reservation . The wine list is one of the best in SA and the prices are very moderate.
