A feast of flavours, this dish I can highly recommend. It is a large portion and I thought I wouldn't finish it but the taste was too good to leave a morsel. Such a fantastic location too and superb service

Description
The Olive Terrace Bistro at the Tulbagh Hotel is open 7 days a week for breakfast lunch and dinner. The a la carte menu is a celebration of South African flavours and locally sourced seasonal fruits and vegetables and we cater for vegetarian, vegan and gluten free diets. All our dishes are prepared in house. The cosy Karee lounge bar features speciality teas and coffees, draught craft beers, local gins, wines and a tapas menu together with gourmet pizzas from our wood fired oven and freshly baked scones and cakes. The restaurant supports many community initiatives including local creches and Steinthal Childrens Home, sourcing produce from the Tulbagh Community Garden and sponsoring young people through the City and Guilds Catering course.
