There is not much that is more pleasing to the senses than a glass of beautiful wine paired with magnificent food in an unreal setting. This is exactly what I was given at the Fine Food and Wine dinner hosted by the Waterside Grill and Guardian Peak wines at the Hyatt Regency Oubaai on the 28th of March. On arrival we were enticed with Lemon marinated prawns and Betroot lollies filled with a sweet local goats cheese that wonderfully complimented the crisp Gaurdian Peak Sauvignon Blanc wine selection. Executive Chef Brian then welcomed us with a smoking Sushi and proceeded to serve a tender Duck breast starter. The Blesbock lion main course was cooked to perfection and well suited to a personal favourite the Guardian Peak SMG blend. For dessert Brian prepared an African truffle cake topped a well rounded meal. Overall the experience left us thoroughly impressed and looking forward to the next dinner event at the one of a kind Waterside Grill Restaurant!

What an amazing wine tasting. It was my first one, but the chef and wine representative were so attentive to detail and the unique South African food items used was very impressive. The Blesbok (game) was served perfectly. Another awesome time at this restaurant!

I would have given 4 stars apart from the fact that my main course was delayed because the chicken had not thawed out ( this was what the chef explained to me ) never experienced this before - not sure what Gordon Ramsay would have siad!

A restaurant within the Hyatt premises. Beautiful interior with the chefs standing in the middle in an open kitchen preparing your food, excellent winelist with wines from every continent, but you of course choose Big Easy´s wine. Excellent food at prices that does not exceed the local shack!

I had dinner at the Waterside Grill, it was a Zevanwatch Wine dinner. The food was really nice, from the canapes to starters, main course and dessert it was all very good. The wine maker was very informative and entertaining. Their bar is also very nice with good cocktails. A nice place to entertain freinds.
