While Pretoria might not be close to the ocean, Kaya Beach brings a unique, seaside experience to Grootfontein. This specialist outdoor restaurant is a novel dining experience with a beach-style theme. Guests can pack a cooler of ice-cold beer for sharing with friends and family while the eatery prepares an indulgent 6-course meal.
Kaya Beach operates a little differently to a typical restaurant; guests are required to bring their choice of beverages while dedicated chefs provide the food. Upon your arrival, take a seat outside, kick off your shoes and relax.
Your visit will be characterised by an array of family-fun, with children playing at the designated entertainment area and building castles in the sand. Adults can enjoy good conversation, sip on beverages, and eagerly anticipate the feast that awaits them.
As for the food, guests are advised to come hungry. As one might expect from an island-inspired eatery, fresh seafood forms part of the meal. Mussel soup serves as a starter and is bound to whet the appetite. A chicken potjie makes for a hearty second course while the snoek in lemon butter sauce bursts with flavour.
To help settle the stomach, there is a thirty to forty minute wait in-between meals. During that time, relax at the open-air rondavel on comfortable cushions, or take a seat on the sand and listen to tunes by local musicians.
To continue with the local fare, vegetable and beef potjies are the fifth and six courses, while diners can enjoy the Afrikaans sweet treat, koeksisters, for dessert. End your evening with a freshly-brewed cup of coffee before heading home with a happy heart and full stomach.
