La Pentola meaning "The pot" is a cultural melting pot of flavours, people, music & cultures. The style of cuisine is fusion, based on classic culinary principles incorporating the best of local produce and regional ingredients to create a unique style of cuisine which carries our rich South African heritage. The menu offers prime cuts of meat, seafood including abalone, vegetarian, pastas & game for the tourist or more adventurous diner. A head chef is always available on site should any guest have specific dietary requirements not already met by our menu selection.


The founding members Janet and Shane Sauvage started out in the restaurant business over two decades ago and have received international and local recognition for their concept in the form of awards & critical acclaim.

La Pentola established on the inception of the new South Africa embraces the principles of gender equality, self-empowerment and upliftment through education. We have a strict policy of promoting from within the company and through this we manage to further enable our employees to grow within the company both in knowledge and status.


Eco Policy
To conserve & protect the beautiful environment we have various eco programs in place. As a restaurant we're committed to the elimination of single use plastics hence only corn-starch straws, organic take away containers, no pre-packaged butter. No material table cloths or serviettes are used to prevent contamination of thousands of litres of water on an annual basis. We recycle & we reuse where ever possible. All glass bottles, cardboard & paper is recycled with the help of Walker Bay Recycling. We make use of as many local suppliers to reduce the carbon foot print of our ingredients. We are actively involved in an ongoing project called 'Bin Your Butt' to help prevent cigarette filters ending up in our ocean.

Thank you for supporting us in our endeavours. Together we can make a difference.
