Chorus – ‘The restaurant in the sky’

The dramatic concrete-and-glass building overlooking the magnificent landscape of the Waterkloof Wine Estate and neighbouring False Bay is a ‘beacon of architectural excellence’ and home to Chorus Restaurant.
If you have an appreciation for architecture, picturesque surroundings and fine dining, Chorus ticks all the boxes.

The brainchild of Bertus Basson, a renowned chef who’s food ‘philosophy is rooted in traditional South African food culture with a modern outlook.’

The menu is a celebration of local flavours and seasonal ingredients. There’s a four-course menu option for *R750pp, with wine pairing for an additional *R425pp; or, a six-course chef’s menu for *R875pp, with the option of wine pairing for an additional *R525pp. The wine list celebrates Waterkloof Wines as well as wines from other South African producers.

We were taken on a culinary journey that delivered an amalgamation of flavours. From the canapes to the smaller meals, to the dessert – all courses were prepared to perfection.

The star meal was the signature souffle. I’m not a fan of souffles and ordinarily I would not order it at as my dessert of choice, but Bertus’s souffle comes highly recommended and I got to know why. The aroma of the chai spice and the way the souffle melts in your mouth, it delivers on taste. The pumpkin side ice-cream was a perfect selection.

Apart from the fact that when we arrived, we were greeted with suspicion by our fellow brother at security, our overall experience was lovely, the space, the setting, the food and the environment all lends itself well. The staff at the restaurant were welcoming, tentative and delivered a great service.

The ‘restaurant in the sky’ was a delectable experience!
