Highly acclaimed chef George Jardine and award winning winemakers Gary and Kathy Jordan have joined forces to open a new restaurant in the grounds of Jordan Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. The Jordan Restaurant is located next to the estates tasting room and seat up to 80 guests, either indoors or outside on the patio, opened its doors on the 1st of December 2009. The partnership brings together the Jordans, owners of one of the countrys best known and respected wineries, with former South African Chef of the Year Jardine, whose eponymous restaurant in Cape Town was recently listed in the San Pellegrino Worlds 100 Best Restaurants for the second year in a row. George Jardines menu focuses on local and seasonal ingredients sourced from South Africas best suppliers and producers. The restaurant houses a selection of the finest seasonal South African cheeses in a walk-in cheese room. Guests are able to join George Jardine in the cheese room to make a personal selection.

Gourmet Guide Description

'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

    We had the chef's choice 5 course menu and everything was absolutely delicious! Our waiter was attentive and well informed. The lemon poppy seed soufflé is something out of this world!! The view from the restaurant is just absolutely breath taking and when we left we were greeted by a chorus of crickets and toads from the dam. It was magical!

    We had the most wonderful experience (the service was phenomenal and the wine served at the perfect temperature) and enjoyed every bite of our meal. Also - hands down the best vegetarian fine dining starter and main courses I have ever had. Thank you!
