Description: Here at Neighbourhood Wine we believe in seasonality and simplicity. The excitement of taking the best produce at the right time of year and turning it into something beautiful to enjoy. Head Chef Almay Jordaan grew up on a farm outside of Cape Town where the seasons dictated the menu and that philosophy has driven her approach to food ever since. Provenance and sustainability are important to us and both are integral in our kitchen. Simon Denman has developed an ever-changing and ever-growing wine list incorporating different styles, varieties and vintages from across the world. Our list tends towards wines of a more minimal intervention approach, allowing the provenance and vintage of the wine to shine through. Working with a range of artisanal winemakers (who typically produce wine in smaller quantities) enables the flexibility to have a diverse and dynamic wine list.

“Missed the mark”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We visited with friends from Sydney. They don't take reservations so we waited nearly 90 minutes for a table. Expensive wine, below average food and excessively long waits between courses added up to a bad experience.

“Very relaxing”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is a 'relatively' new restaurant/wine bas. It has an intimate, cosy setting with rustic timber furniture. The food is very reasonably priced and was very tasty. The wine list is extensive and outstanding with an exhaustive listing of foreign wines. The 'sommelier' was very knowlegable and helpful. But be prepared to pay a few more dollars for some exceptional wines. Service was both friendly and efficient with many thanks to Lisa.
