Kaya Beach offers a unique dining experience to beach-loving patrons. While Bredell might not be at the seaside, the eatery brings the seaside to this small Kempton Park suburb. The island-themed restaurant is a place of merriment and relaxation, where guests are able to wiggle their toes in the sand, drink a refreshing beer and feast on authentic South African meals.
Things work a little differently at Kaya Beach as diners are asked bring along their six-packs of cold brew or bottles of Merlot while an acclaimed group of chefs prepare a gourmet six-course meal. Take a seat outside on whitewashed benches or under a large marquee to escape the heat. Eclectic maritime ornaments such as life jackets, surfboards, and diving suits are found throughout the restaurant and an out-of-use speedboat is perfect for kids to explore. During the evening when there is a chill in the air, bonfires are lit to keep patrons warm.
As for the food, patrons are advised to come ravenous as they will be treated to an indulgent six-course meal. As one might expect from a beach-inspired eatery, seafood forms a major part of the meal. Mussel soup is served as a starter and is bound to whet the appetite, for even the more discerning of customers. A chicken potjie makes for a wholesome second course while the snoek in lemon butter sauce is simply delicious.
To keep customers from getting too full, there is a thirty to forty minute wait in-between meals. During that time, diners can relax with friends around the bonfire, or cosy up to a loved one while listening to the crooning of local artists.
The fourth and fifth courses are proudly South African fare. Devour hearty bowls of vegetable and beef potjie and end your meal with the Afrikaans sweet treat, koeksisters, accompanied by a freshly brewed mug of coffee.
