Description: AtholPlace Restaurant re-opened in December 2014 with a totally fresh new look. We have added a large covered outside dining area (verandah) with a view of our garden and pool area. You can start by getting your taste buds tingling in our intimate bar and library where delicious canapes await you. Choose one of the wines from our extensive wine cellar to suit all tastes, or try a popular craft beer, brewed locally. Your waiter will then escort you to the restaurant with it's relaxing ambiance. Here timeless elegance and classic contemporary design set the mood for the culinary joys that await. Once seated, the Chef will take you on a culinary journey by presenting an a-la-carte three course dining menu. The carefully crafted menu changes frequently, making every experience at AtholPlace Restaurant exciting and unique. Chef Willie Malherbe utilises his experience and his passion for food to create dishes of varied influence and a true expression of flavour. Adopting Relais & Chateaux ethics in sustainability, AtholPlace Restaurant sources local fresh produce where possible. AtholPlace Restaurant also has a wonderful breakfast and lunch menu.

We were invited to a Whiskey and Lint chocolate tasting with a meal,
The tasting was good but the food poor.
Starters came out a various times and were not possible to be eaten together
Mains had the same result but the Kingklip was inedible
The Deseret was supposed to be a Brulee , but was far from it

Dear Pietuys, you have written a review about AtholPlace Restaurant a long time ago. Last year the hotel was taken over by Morukuru Family and after 4 months of renovating and upgrading AtholPlace Hotel & Villa re-opened on 9 December 2014.
We have also re-opened AtholPlace Restaurant again, with a completely new ambiance and a new Chef and menu. We would like to invite you to come back to AtholPlace Restaurant as our guest and enjoy a nice dinner, with our compliments. Looking forward to hearing from you! Kindest regards on behalf of the entire team at AtholPlace Restaurant, Rinse
