News and Events: DURBANVILLE HILLS VOTED SA’S BEST RESTAURANT 2017
Durbanville Hills was recently awarded the title of South Africa’s Best Restaurant in Restaurant Week’s Fifth Anniversary edition, having scored an impressive overall score of 9.7 out of 10 for its delectable menu and pristine service. Voted Restaurant Week’s best Winelands Restaurant for the past two years, it was the drive and expertise of the culinary team that lead the restaurant to take the title of best restaurant in the whole country for 2017.
Restaurant Manager at Durbanville Hills, Dirk Steyn, says that the team is thrilled to have been recognised by such a prestigious competition, especially as it’s based on actual consumer feedback. “As per usual, the restaurant’s goal is to deliver an innovative menu using fresh and local ingredients coupled with exquisite service delivery. Overall, the restaurant received exceptionally high scores including 9.8 for cuisine, 10 for service and 9.5 for ambiance.”
Steyn adds that with over 100 of South Africa’s top restaurants competing for this title, he is extremely proud of the culinary team and restaurant staff for achieving such an outstanding accolade. “These awards would not be possible without their diligence and continuous determination.”
Furthermore, based on their outstanding consumer reviews, Durbanville Hills has been selected to participate in an extension of Restaurant Week, taking place from 23 November to 5 December 2017, as one of the top 10 restaurants of the Western Cape region. “So if you didn’t get to try the menu before, now’s your chance,” says Steyn, adding that bookings are now open via Restaurant Week.
Lastly, to celebrate this significant achievement, Head Chef, Louisa Greef, shares the recipe for her famous seared salmon with onion spread, lemon béarnaise and brown rice puffs – a fan-favourite during Restaurant Week.
