Fine Dining

With high wingback chairs and large tables to set the stage, guests are enchanted with a relaxed private dining space under a unique abstract Matoppie tree stretching its branches up the wall and onto the ceiling. Enjoy mouth-watering dishes inspired by truly South African ingredients and perfected by our passionate and award-winning chefs.

Whether you are a day visitor, or staying over at the prized Palala Boutique Game Lodge & Spa, know that you are in for a special treat. Enjoy the morning sunshine on the spectacular outdoor deck, suspended above the relaxing waterway with a cappuccino and a sumptuous breakfast. Patrons can enjoy rustic and relaxed lunches during the day or watch the transformation of the menu and restaurant into a fine dining delight at night.

Offered on the evening set menu, guests will find favourites such as our Chef’s own combination of succulent beef infused with a variety of Indian spices; a macadamia and mushroom stuffed chicken breast wrapped with smoked bacon and drizzled with a whiskey and onion sauce; a selection of lamb cutlets crusted in a Dukka of sweet spicy seasoning and so much more. New and exciting additions are constantly introduced to allow our guests to indulge in a culinary experience of note.

The extensive wine collection pays homage to the wine makers of South Africa, showcasing the best of each wine region. From the cooler coastal Sauvignon Blancs to the rich Shiraz grapes grown on the slopes of the Stellenbosch region, each wine is carefully selected and cared for.
