Today we had the reduced gormand menu with wine pairing.
From the first course, our expectations were blown away. The attention to details from the perfectly placed micros to the incredible flavour combinations to the perfect wine pairings, there was nothing to fault throughout!
The caraway sourdough bread was one of a kind! The thick crust was wonderful and then the chewy inside, it was truly wonderful bread. The home churned virgin butter with the roasted yeast and sesame butter was the perfect butter to compliment the bread.
Each course was perfectly balanced and the wine pairings for each dish brought new depths to the dish and was very well chosen!
Very special restaurant and is a must visit to any who appreciates exceptional food ♡

We visited LPC today and had the full tasting menu with wine pairing. The welcome and service was top drawer, friendly and professional. The food was excellent and the wine pairings complemented every flavor. The standout dish for me was the sea bass whilst one dining companion was blown away by the springbok. Meet the chef was very well presented by chef Simon and the egg and soldiers were another stand out. Well done to head chef John and his team.

We have frequented a few fine dining restaurants in the area and this was the best to date. Simon the head chef and his team impressed from the pre-meal sourdough bread to the surprise treasure chest after our four course meal. My husband, daughter and I were blown away by every dish. The taste combinations were phenomenal and the plating was exceptional. We met Simon and were treated to his amazing take on egg and soldiers. We cannot fault any part of our visit. Morne and the serving staff were also friendly and efficient.

I was absolutely blown away by the quality delivered from service to food to wine pairing! We ordered the 5 course meal but after one bite of the first course we immediately decided to change to the full menu. Impeccably dished up food, highest quality of ingredients and just mind blowingly delicious! Cant wait to be back again soon! one of the best dining experiences I have ever had.

Now I know why they require a deposit! Once you see the menu, no one would want to eat here! We triedto cancel the night before and could nit get through on the phone. Now today they answer but will not refund a 2000R deposit. Stay away!!!!!
