‘simple sophistication in an enviable setting’
Jordan Wine Estate in Stellenbosch is where chef George Jardine and his head chef Kyle Burn have created a loyal following. In summer take your seat outdoors on the deck where you may enjoy lake and vineyard views, in winter cosy fires and heartwarming comfort food satisfy every sophisticated soul. In any season, you will want to share the friendly ambience of the chefs at work in the open kitchen taking immense care in the preparation and plating of their beautiful dishes.
These timeless yet distinctive dishes are accompanied by full representation of Jordan wines plus vintage and regional wines. Flavourful treatment of local quality produce is a hallmark here, starting with breads baked on site at the bakery. Expect delicious dishes like rabbit confit with compressed apple and red cabbage slaw, and a tasty, comforting starter of avocado with arancini. The Chalmar sirloin, cooked to perfection and served on a superb Jerusalem artichoke risotto in winter, is sublime. The butter-roasted, crispy quail and the guava and vanilla-chocolate dessert are noteworthy. Chef Kyle describes his food as contemporary, yet guests often say exemplary.
If it is more of George’s genius that you desire, head to nearby Jardine Restaurant in the centre of Stellenbosch, or to Restaurant Seven in Somerset West.
“We thrive on fresh and seasonal ingredients and constantly work on new skills and development.” Chef Kyle Burn
