Sansibar is situated at the Asara Wine Estate and Hotel just outside of Stellenbosch, and is the hotel’s casual-dining option.
Almost all the dishes at Sansibar – salads and some desserts aside – are prepared in a wood-fired oven. Cooking is at high temperatures, which means that the food cooks quickly and gets a little extra flavour from the oven, depending on what type of wood we are using that week.
Sansibar has become known for its selection of fantastic flat-bread pizzas, but there is also a range of delicious wood-fired bistro-style main courses on the menu including baby chicken, ribs, burgers, salmon and more.
The ambience at Sansibar is casual and lively. There is seating inside the restaurant but, weather permitting, prime location for guests is outside under the umbrellas on the terrace, with full exposure to stunning views of the dam, vineyards, valley and mountains.
The Sansibar Gin Lounge & Terrace is just next door to the bistro, and its extensive list of local and imported gins, classic and in-house cocktails, sundowners with or without alcohol, and all imaginable beverages, is available at the bistro. As well, of course, as the full range of the estate’s own fine wines.
