The food at the restaurant is great, however this specific Tasting and Pairing menu was prepared by one of South Africa's best chefs, Jacque.
Jacque is normally the chef at Licorish at Nicolway centre in Bryanston but I managed to prevail upon him to cook for us at Loveata.
Jacque and Aki are partners in 3 restaurants, Licorice, Loveata in Senderwood and The Green Peppercorn in Rivonia Road all fantastic.
Jacque trains the chefs for the restaurants and Aki heads up the business side of the restaurants.
However if you ask very nicely Jacque will apply his unbelievable skills and prepare a meal for you that you will make tears of joy run down your cheeks.
Honestly, joking aside, his food is simply outstanding and his wine pairings were perfect.
He further, with each course, explained the the food and why he chose that particular pairing.
There were 16 of us at the meal and each and every one of us could not find enough words of praise.
