Big fuss for run off the mill restaurant, 3 occupied tables and waitress could not find time to make us feel welcome. Curry venison was so salted a spoon could float on it. Extractor fan loudest ever and music terrible. Sorry for this and that...More

Dining at the lauded Marine has sadly veered in the wrong direction with the revamped Seafood restaurant. The old adage "if it aint broke don't fix it" has bypassed the management team, possibly in a bid to match the growing culinary competition in the area....More

We stayed at The Marine for the second time in a month. We ate at Origins on both occasions and will definitely be back. Service was friendly and attentive, and the food was fresh and delicious. Great addition to a lovely hotel.

We didn't stretch them by ordering the fish and chips but it arrived promptly and was delicious. Could be improved with thick chips rather than the string fries! Highlight was the dessert ... the Origin Mess! Enough for two people so ask for 2 spoons.More

Description
At Origins we look back to look forward. We look back to our beginning: The Khoisan, our First People, to tell a story of our region’s culture, cuisine and ingredients, to run a restaurant that’s fueled by the joy of sharing fine, local food and drink. Chefs Peter Tempelhoff and Grant Parker search out indigenous and endemic produce, to create menus that explore a history of flavour.
