What’s more synonymous with winter than a fireplace, a heating drink and a plate of good hearty food. Our food and drink cravings are substantially different in winter and to cater to that, Gabriëlskloof Restaurant in the Overberg region have crafted a winter offering inspired by the regional produce, hospitality and beauty.

The menu will change daily and will offer wholesome vegetable-based dishes in addition to more rustic dishes –  think crispy pork belly, roasts and chocolate fondant for dessert. 

This picturesque restaurant is set amongst a hilltop winery and has views of the surrounding valley and a large fireplace that’s fired up on cold days. The Blackboard Menu for wintery days will be available until the end of August and is worth the drive from Cape Town for pure indulgence. If you can’t quite get to Gabriëlskloof Restaurant, here are some other ideas to satisfy your winter cravings:

  • Look for restaurants with fireplaces and be sure to make a reservation to get the best table near the fire
  • Choosing a full-bodied red wine that compliments your meal is perfect for a winter dinner
  • Why not try a winter cocktail or a winter salad? Who said salads and cocktails were only for summer?
  • Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate, whether it comes in the form of a drink or in a dessert, indulging in delectable chocolate is one of the naughty pleasure of winter.

Luxuriate in the pleasures of winter, it will soon be over…
