The Skotnes Restaurant is the culinary arm of the Norval Foundation. Named after legendary South African artist and teacher Cecil Skotnes, the restaurant is naturally at home in the world of art.

Overlooking the foundation’s serene wetland and Sculpture Garden, the Skotnes seamlessly integrates nature and architecture. The menu pays homage to classical South African cuisine, while updating its flavours and distilling its ingredients to their simplest possible presentation.

All ingredients are sourced from local, small-batch suppliers, with the intention of supporting and uplifting local communities. At the helm of the Skotnes is Head Chef Delia Harbottle.

The Skotnes Restaurant was recognised by Eat Out Readers as “Highly Commended” in the Best Everyday Eatery Awards 2018.

    Location is excellent. There are probably some dishes that are worth it, but not all unfortunately. Go for the gallery, views, interiors, garden.

    Meal was a little pricey but good and food portions are generous. Service and environment is absolutely faultless and delightful, food arrived quickly. Seared Tuna meal was very well made, batter in deep fried items crisp and light. There is a nice play area for children and the restaurant is prepared with crayons. Only critique is the lemon tart pastry was thick and not crisp or "short" enough and tart filling was lacking flavor and sharpness, the accompanying sorbet was good though and the pear frangipane tart was lovely.
