Culinary diversity:The Team believes that food is about more than feeding your body. It's about connecting with others. Taking time to savour each mouthful and tasting the freshness and wildness of this unique place. Enjoy these culinary experiences at one of the two distinctive lodge restaurants, each with their own character and atmosphere. They believe also that nothing tastes better than organic, freshly picked vegetables and herbs. Which is why they have their own farm from which they harvest and get these ingredients to their kitchen and onto your plate as fresh as possible. The culinary team meets regularly to brainstorm and experiment, discussing which ingredients are the best, right now. Whether it's visiting the harbour to pick up the catch of the day, or heading to the farm to check on the micro herbs, you can be guaranteed that Executive Chef Benjamin Conradie and his knowledgeable team have got your tastebuds covered.
Activities:Wine Experience: The Grootbos Team knows a lot about wine. But They are not pretentious about it. The Team believes that everyone will enjoy discovering and experiencing the award winning wines of this region, whether they're sampling a food and wine pairing, hearing from one of their sommeliers on what makes this vintage particularly special or going on a guided tour to the wine farm itself.
