Restaurants and Bars
South African celebrity chef, Reuben Riffel rose to fame when his first restaurant, Reuben’s, opened to much acclaim in the historical town of Franschhoek in 2004. Reuben debuted his first urban restaurant at One&Only Cape Town in 2010. The restaurant has a sophisticated but unfussy, brasserie feel and the food provides the exciting combination of local flavours you would expect from one of South Africa’s most loved chefs. Serving deceptively simple, wholesome bistro fare, with fresh flavours, generous portions and beautifully plated dishes. Reuben’s appeals to the culinary side of the soul and is enjoyed by young and old alike. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
A spectacular tri-level wall of glass and steel commands the entrance to the impressive Wine Loft adjacent to Reuben’s, where guests discover a magnificent collection of over 5,000 bottles and 600 references. Particular emphasis is given to prestigious vintages as well as up-and-coming South African boutique wineries. Located on the mezzanine level and overlooking the restaurant, Reuben’s Tasting Table is available for private dining for up to 12 guests.
