We regret, This facility has closed. Situated at the entrance of the Constantia Uitsig Estate, River Café has long been a popular social haunt in the Constantia Valley and is well known for it's sumptuous breakfasts, lunches and more recently, dinners.
This popular meeting spot has undergone a re-awakening by none other than Luke Dale-Roberts, Executive Chef of La Colombe. Luke has appointed his protégé, Scot Kirton, as the Head Chef of the new River Café. Whether for breakfast, lunch, afternoon snacks or dinner - with casual ambience, pristine location and friendly service - River Café is the place to be!
As befits it's laidback persona, the revitalised River Café offers an authentic and affordable bistro-style dining experience, using only the freshest local ingredients, wines from the Constantia Valley, plates of wholesome, satisfying fare with a sophisticated country feel. The menu changes daily allowing diners to experience a wide variety of dishes that reflect the best seasonal offerings Scot is able to acquire.
Scot and Luke work closely with Horticulturalist, Boyd Hutchings, and together they have developed an organic garden allowing them to grow their own fresh herbs and vegetables for their ever-changing culinary creations. They will also be embarking on an exciting project to smoke their own produce, from salmon to meats and cheeses and have sourced artisan baked breads and top quality coffee.
