Cavalli’s approach to cuisine can be described as ‘modern​, ​nature inspired cuisine’, inspired by a focus on our heritage​ as it draws upon​ the landscapes, flora and fauna of Southern and Continental Africa. ​ The menu ​seeks to​ take diners on a ​gastronomic ​journey, ​touching on points of nostalgia paired with an expertly crafted local and international wine list, artisanal cocktail, craft beer and a notable selection of single malt whiskeys. Herbs and a selection of vegetables on the menu are grown in the Estate's self sustained heirloom garden. The restaurant is set to establish itself as a premier fine dining destination locally and internationally and is now open for lunch and dinner 4 days a week, Wednesday through Saturday for relaxed, generous Bistro lunch and Fine-Dining Dinner and Sunday Fine-Dining Lunch.
