Tomlin continues his culinary magic at this new address, with Head Chef Jacques Grové taking the reins as Head Chef, assisted by Dian Botes as Sous Chef and Head Pastry Chef San-Marie Pienaar.

    The fillet medallion was melt in one’s mouth tender - and incredible taste combinations with the rest of the meal. The food was outstanding

    Superb. The Bailey has brought, to Cape Town, a food experience out of the world’s top drawer. We dined at the Brasserie. The setting is beautiful, hung with exceptional works of art. The food was simply delicious. The Châteaubriand for 2 was magnificent. Then the wines. I think Liam raided the best wines around. In short, a must to visit. It’s a new top Cape Town experience
