Hubby and I visited The Tangram Restaurant at Durbanville Hills Wines during the month of August 2021 for a mid-week date night.
3 courses of beautifully cooked and presented food, all paired with fantastic wines were the order of the night. Not a single complaint...to be made!
The staff are all exceptionally well trained, very friendly and efficient.
We had great service and the food was good. The views are great. It was a bit cold, overcast and windy but inside was fine. The menu is very limited with just a few mains to choose from. What we did order was very good.
So glad we decided to get together at Durbanville Hills for a very overdue catch up between friends. The wine pairings were great. We tried the cheese and wine and the biltong & dried fruit and ei e pairing. There is a beautiful view from...the tasting room. We could stay at the same table when we decided to have a light lunch. The fish and chips was beautifully presented and delicious. The staff is friendly and very attentive.More
….We decided to come here to celebrate my wife’s birthday and boy was it the right choice we made. Seeing that it was for dinner we arrived just as the winter sun was setting, wow what an amazing romantic setting it created. A once in...a life time experience. The restaurant was empty just as we like it to be. We found that all the Covid-19 protocols were still in place, hand-spray, temperature check and the info-form to be filled out. So assuring! Our host for the evening was Patrick and was he a super-star, friend-lii, on the ball and very obliging as it was a birthday celebration he made it very special. First-lii we received 3 glasses of Durbanville-Hills “Rose’” bubbly on the house, next still on the house also we got to savour the young “Pinotage” syphoned straight from the barrel that sets on its side right on the restaurant floor and the freebies did not end there my wife received a bottle of a brand-new release “Light-Lively” CHENIN-BLANC. Indeed a birthday to remember. We became aware immediate-lii that the MENU has also changed since our last visit. The new menu card offers 7 staters to choose from such as Oysters, salads, chowder, mushrooms, salmon, pork-belly and duck. We ordered a bottle of D-H “Pinotage” 2019 to start off with and our starters were: - 1. Pork-Belly Collectors Pinotage (burnt apple-puree, raisin chutney & crisp-ii shallot-rings) 2. 3 x Drunken Oysters (Served with a shot of Bains-Whiskey & Ginger-Syrup) Both choices were exceptional tastii and delicious! The Drunken Oysters was a total new escapade for me in the Oyster consumption game, Mmmmmm-h! The Mains on offer had a selection of 6 dishes: - Tofu, Quinoa. Chicken, Fish, Beef-Fillet and Venison. We went for: - 1. Fish Collectors Chardonnay (masala-spice, buttered baby-potatoes, cucumber raita and Asian-slaw) 2. Beef Fillet Collectors Cabernet Sauvignon (biltong dusted fillet, caramelised onion mousse, pumpkin-fritters, crisp-ii onions and baby-potatoes, jus. 3. Venison Collectors Shiraz (Springbok!) (skewered with apricots, onions, spiced baby-potatoes, veg-puree, baby carrots, jus. All three mails were outstanding as they delivered explicit unique taste, the fish light-lii brushed with masala left the palate bedazzled. The meats were well prepared and served as ordered. The Venison (Springbok) was like butter melting in your mouth. The Desserts on the menu was a choice of 4, we ordered: - 1. Profiteroles Honeybee (lemon cream, caramelised white chocolate crumb, dark chocolate and honeycomb ice cream) 2. Pumpkin-Cake / Vegan / Honeybee (coconut chantilly, caramel, spiced pecan nut crumb, honeycomb) 3. Chocolate / D-H Merlot Brandy (brandy snap, dulce de leche mousse, chocolate biscuit crumb, chocolate sticks, miso caramel, dark chocolate mousse). What an awesome time we spent here where the spectacular scenery of the setting sun, good wine, delicious foods and even better company. We will always recommend this outstanding classy venue where the service provided is top-notch……NB! They have free guest WiFi (just ask for the Password from the waiters) Also worth mentioning is the fact that when patrons leave the stuff is ready to sanitise the vacated tables……More
Another awesome wine tasting experience.
Wine radting was a great experience. We shared a platter with tasty, meats, cheeses and preserves. Abit pricey and not as big as the olatter at Maastricht Wines.
We tasted the Collectors Reserve range. Big and bomd wines, but all...were too quality.
Well worth a visit and an allround great tasting experiece.
…and yes, we did walk out with 2 cases of selected wines!More
Durbanville Hills produces good wines and the wine farm has a great view from the slopes. We looked forward to a nice lunch.
There was a House party just outside the building and it was incredibly loud. The partygoers were overflowing from the patio and...sitting on the walls making it look and sound like a nightclub. Even inside the restaurant the music was a distraction and a put off.
The food was extremely disappointing. Steaks not done as ordered and clearly have been sitting waiting for a waitron. Food was cold, tasteless, dry and completely lacking in any flavour whatsoever.
I would not return.More
We enjoyed our meat and cheese platters with succulent grapes, breads, provitas olives and figs. A bottle of DH Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc accompanied our platter experience and we opted for this rather than a variety of wonderful wine pairing options which were also available....We sat inside and enjoyed the stunning vista overlooking Durbanville Hills valley.More
