About Gourmet Dining in the Drakensberg

The venue has earned global renown as a romantic gourmet getaway for good reason. The restaurant, housed within a 5-star lodge bordering on a lake, nestled within the Drakensberg mountain, offers a feast for every sense.

Owned and run by passionate foodies who have sourced inspiration the world over; no expense or effort is spared in delighting patrons with every single morsel. Where possible, ingredients are grown and sourced locally, with the exception of certain gourmet ingredients, such as salmon, which is flown in from Norway, along with imported cheeses and parma hams from Italy. The menu changes daily, inspired by the seasons and the availability of fresh ingredients.

From three-course breakfasts through to seven-course dinners, prepare to experience life changing moments at Cleopatra. This is after all, an intimate experience, perfected over a decade of entertaining. A rifle through their recipe stores reveals such delights as parmesan encrusted salmon, puff pastry, rich desserts, enticing starters, unforgettable breakfasts and a passion for sauces and reductions. Richard talks his guests through every mouthful from frying pan to plate before they enjoy his creations.

What could be more exquisite than a mountain retreat, bordering a lake, with log fires burning, and world-class gourmet food on the ever-changing menu? Cleopatra stands out as an unforgettably romantic, gourmet experience that we highly recommend.
