I don‘t give bad reviews easily, but Foxcroft was unfortunately a really disappointing end of a culinary three week holiday in South Africa. After having eaten at some really fantastic joints throughout our journey - fancy one‘s like Beau Constantia, Pot Luck Club, Chef‘s Warehouse @ Maison or Delaire Graff Estate, but also down to earth stuff like Harbour House, the Fat Butcher or the Three Fig Restaurant in Sabie - we think we‘ve got quite a good overview of what you get and what you pay for in ZA. Tastewise Foxcroft was not only the blandest, but also very poorly cooked food in all of ZA. I had loin of Imapala as my main and one of the two slices was so tough and chewy that I even couldn‘t cut or eat it - something you really wouldn‘t expect at a place like this. Although not eating half of my main, service didn‘t bother to ask if everything was OK or I enjoyed my dish, which indicates that management is absent at Foxcroft. This leads me to the (open) kitchen staff, which seemed surpisingly unbusy for a full restaurant and even texting messages between preparing - maybe because of the uninspiring dishes? Some other lows of the menu included a pickled pear that tasted like pure vinegar, killing all other flavors of the dish, cold cuts tasting like cardboard and shampoo-inspired ice cream. On the plus side, dishes were nicely presented and good to take pictures of - which is unfortunately not enough for this price range and the aspiration of the restaurant. Summed up: Avoid this place, there are so many other great options in the region.
