The Dobbs House Restaurant enjoys its prime positioning in the glorious Modderfontein Nature Reserve. Although this reserve is in the heart of the savannahs and hills of South Africa, it is only a short drive from the capital city of Gauteng, Johannesburg, where the pace is quicker and the urban vibe tangible.

The reserve is dedicated to showcasing the beauty of the South African fauna and flora, and it is within these idyllic surrounds that the Dobbs House Restaurant is found. The look and feel of Dobbs is undeniably elegant, which is the perfect complement to the exquisite views all around. It is open from Tuesday to Sunday for breakfast and lunch, and there is a small but inclusive wine list, as well as a number of craft beers on offer.

Breakfasts include traditional must-haves, as well as French toast with bacon and syrup, smoked trout on potato rostis with horseradish cream, egg Florentine, and an irresistible continental pastry board. Salads take on a new appeal as the kitchen prepares them with lovely flavour combinations and fresh ingredients, and there are delicious lunch options like grilled fillet, a hearty Karoo lamb and feta burger, and sage butter gnocchi. There is also a children’s menu to cater to little ones that want a simple macaroni cheese or beef burger.

But, the mezze boards really do steal the show at Dobbs House. The options include a Charcuterie Platter (with chicken liver paté, chorizo, ham, prosciutto, and salami, served with delicious breads, grapes, cocktail tomatoes and onion marmalade), a Fromage Platter (comprising camembert, blue cheese, Welsh cheddar, goat’s cheese, cumin boerenkaas, and smoked provolone with bread, fruit and marmalade) and a Mediterranean Board (which has delicious hummus, tzatziki, sundried tomato and feta dip, mozzarella balls in pesto, sourdough bread, marinated mushrooms and more). Of course, these are just some of the platters on offer, and hungry diners are sure to find the perfect one to suit their preferences.

Dobbs House Restaurant combines a lovely setting with this fabulous menu, and has successfully created an idyllic hotspot for food, friends and plenty of fun. Parts of the restaurant or garden can be reserved for private celebrations and events, for which the a-la-carte menu or a personalised set menu can be arranged.
