The coffee

Ginja adds a new dimension to coffee enjoyment with the launch of Native Coffee Roasters within the restaurant.  Created by Capetonian Murray Lloyd, who roasts his own carefully selected coffee beans, Native Coffee Roasters offers the quintessential experience in coffee appreciation.  Murray takes great care of his thoroughly trained baristas and endeavours to ensure quality and consistency in every cup. Apart from the 100% Arabica bean blending that gives ultimate true flavour, Native also carefully measures the coffee shots for every cup and then regularly weighs the finished product to help ensure customer satisfaction.  Murray believes that if one is passionate about coffee this will go a long way in helping to produce a fine cup. Native will serve coffee from 6h30 all day and every day at Ginja.  You can also purchase Native coffee beans for your home brewing. The coffee bar at Ginja will also serve a small artisanal take away food menu.

 The décor

Interior Designer, Francois Du Plessis and architects, Peerutin, have created a fabulous new restaurant space for Ginja.  Using organic textures in wood, stone and textiles in muted natural colours, the décor is enhanced by accents of metal and clever, ambient lighting.  The palette is easy on the eye, welcoming and utterly contemporary.  A mix of long shared tables and smaller tables compliment the relaxed feel of this broadly appealing new restaurant.

  The entertainment

Presented by Waterkloof Wines and for the second year running, SA’s iconic and hugely popular band, Watershed will perform on Sunday, 30 October 2016 at Ginja.  A very generous picnic lunch – that includes, for example, sundried tomato and basil tarts, Parma ham, gemsbok biltong pate, chocolate brownies, homemade fudge and much more will be served together with a glass of a Waterkloof wine.  Cost per person is R295 and booking is essential.
