We ate here twice to celebrate a retirement and 65th birthday - the hotel knew about this in advance but, surprisingly, there was no recognition of this on either evening. That said, the service by Diana and Siya was excellent. We enjoyed very pleasant meals...More

We fondly remember this restaurant in the elegant Marine Hotel when it was “Seafood at the Marine”. We were somewhat deterred from returning last trip and this year by less than stellar reviews, but decided to chance it in a group of four, for dinner....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.
