Because the best memories are always made around the table.

And 300,000 guests already made theirs!

It was an amazing week with Chef Vic & his assistant Kaylin. They both saw to every request and were at the Villa before we’d even gotten out of our pjs ???? The supper they prepared for us on our last evening was incredible, a really seafood delight with an even better dessert! Chef Vic really pays attention to detail and remembered which ice cream parlour I’d like and added it to the dessert menu. Will definitely love to have Chef Vic & Kaylin around the next time I’m in Cape Town.

Chef Richard was amazing. He was on time and cooked an incredible meal for 10 people in the group. He listened to any special requests we had and we would definitely book him again. Thanks Richard!

Chef Dori was wonderful! From the moment we booked, he was so accommodating, from selecting the menu and to everything needed on the day. We organized 2 dinners and a lunch with my family while on vacation. The food was absolutely amazing, timed well and allowed my family and I to really enjoy the evening. Chef Dori’s dishes were excellent and he was a pleasure to work with. I will absolutely work with him again any return trips and recommend him absolutely!
