Just like its name, Headlines grabs all the attention amongst locals and tourists, thanks to its vibe and huge menu, specialising in ostrich dishes.
The Headlines starter menu is packed with South African favourites such as chicken wings, spring rolls, shrimp cocktail, crumbed mushrooms, ostrich liver pate and calamari. Save plenty of space for the extensive mains menu, where you’re sure to find something to please every member of your party!
Tender ostrich is cooked to perfection and served as kebabs, fillet, schnitzel ostrich neck. Taking their meat very seriously, the menu from the grill is second to none. There is venison steak, rump, crocodile, and every type of steak you can possibly imagine on offer. Lamb is, ‘grilled just like mom’s Sunday lunch’, and apparently there is nothing spare about their spare ribs! Enjoy a pizza straight from the pizza oven, a delectable pasta or a delicious burger if the meat dishes don’t strike your fancy, or choose from a vast salad and good seafood selection.
The Scallapina sounds lip-smackingly delicious, with mushrooms and garlic topped with a chasseur sauce. Beef Bombay, Oxtail and pork chops have all ‘stood the test of time’ at this much-loved local restaurant.
Overall, Headlines is the perfect place to gather for rib-sticking comfort food, laughter and conversation.
