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.
