Restaurant

  • Every meal here bursts with colour, flavour and texture.

Every meal at our Forest Lodge restaurant is planned down to the finest detail, from the herbs sprinkled delicately on top of our popular Eggs Benedict to the onion chutney we make ourselves. We use only the freshest ingredients, sourced as locally as possible, and in fact nearly half of them come from our Growing the Future food production and social upliftment project, based right here, on the reserve.

You’ll taste the difference because every meal here bursts with colour, flavour and texture. Meals at our restaurant are perfect for enjoying time with loved ones, as you gaze at the ocean views and taste award-winning wines from local producers, all recommended by our expert sommelier.

Whether you sit out on our deck in the fresh air or snuggle by the fire, you’ll enjoy a culinary and sensory experience here that you won’t soon forget.
