Chefs Warehouse @Beau Constantia
About 6 or so years ago, I worked in the tasting room of a beautiful boutique vineyard in the Constantia valley called Beau Constantia. Vineyards are located at the top of Constantia Nek rd with breathtaking views of the valley below and False Bay in the distance. There has been a lot of development to this ultra mod estate over the years, perhaps the most exciting being the addition of a Chefs warehouse restaurant.
The Chefs warehouse group also have establishments located in the city and at Maison estate in Franschhoek, the menus differ but the concept of tapas for 2 is the same. Not only is Chefs Warehouse super affordable for fine dining but I love that you get to sample everything on the menu, no guess work, no food envy. Here are some photos of my most recent visit, highly recommended!
