Gourmet Guide Description

At Beyond on Buitenverwachting wine estate in Constantia, Cape
Town, the unsurpassed vineyard views are as impressive as the
stylish, contemporary décor and superbly-plated, quality cuisine. It
encapsulates the traditions of the farm through pared-back architecture
and honest food. The dedication to provenance equates to supporting
local from the best community producers and surrounding farms –
and using seasonal produce grown on site.

Head chef Julia du Toit delights from the first bite, reflecting her years
of working under executive chef Peter Tempelhoff – from roasted
sweet potato epí with rosemary butter to the last mouthful of matcha,
lime and pistachio. It’s unadulterated fare from premium ingredients
that will delight any diner – dishes like the spring pea mousse with
smoked and pickled carrots, Belnori goat’s cheese, soft herb and
truffle dressing are thought-provoking and memorable.

The harmony of each dish is impressive, with each component playing
a worthy part – like in the king trout with golden beets, remoulade,
orange and a fennel vinaigrette. Ostrich carpaccio cooked over coals
with roast onion ponzu, miso mayo and shiitake will stop international
gourmets in their tracks. “We stay true to our heritage – it’s local, with
influences from everywhere. You don’t want to do too much to the
ingredient,” says Julia.

If you are vacillating between the two, three or six-course chef’s surprise
menu and wine choices, enlist the experienced, friendly advice that
is on hand – here service is supreme, intentional and engaging. The
wine pairings showcase expert Jennifer Hugé’s talent for selecting
perfect partnerships.

The team has pulled out all the stops to present what looks like an
effortless array of feel-good dishes but look closely and see that
the deliciousness is in the detail. A lot of it. Here the fare is cooked
with aplomb and fervour, served with ardour, remembered forever.

    We have been to the Beyond Restaurant many, many times over the years because of the excellent food and service. This was our first time back since the start of Covid. This time we found the food unexciting and bland. It took over an hour for our starter to arrive and there was another long gap before our main course to come. Very disappointing
