Very average food, bad service and no-one there who knows how to make an espresso. One can notice that there is no enthusiasm or passion amongst the staff.

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.
