Experience fine dining in the Winelands. Here at Benguela on Main in Somerset West we have created a haven for gourmands; one that takes into account all aspects of dining out. Enjoy executive chef Jean Delport’s delicious interpretation of classical French and English dishes, relax in our elegant interior, be pampered by our friendly staff.
Taking this a step further our restaurant also boasts its own wine shop and a state of the art tasting room situated upstairs from the restaurant. In other words, diners can expect an all round experience.
What to expect on the food front?
Expect fine dining that is accessible to everyone. Executive chef Jean Delport explains that diners can look forward to “flavours that explode and dishes that could be art.” His cuisine marries classic with modern contemporary, whilst retaining a South African influence.
Diners can choose between the à la carte menu and the tasting menu. Ingredients will be fresh, local and seasonal. The menu will be changed regularly.
Diners can also look forward to dishes complimented by the right wines. This is a food lover's dream, one that the chef plans to realise here in Somerset West. “We want to develop food that matches the style of wine,” says Delport. Wine and food, food and wine, it’s a match made in heaven!
