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.

    Casual, laid back, friendly. Food is ok but not very flavourful. Spectacular location!

    We had a lovely celebration, however, the food wasn’t great. The risotto was lacking salt, the veggie and hamburger were very ordinary, as was the tuna. The desserts also didn’t live up to the menu description.

    Took my mom here for Mothers Day and had a truly wonderful experience. Our waiter Simba was knowledgable and kind, the food was delicious flavorful (prawn banana and chorizo cakes were incredible), plus amazing views. Highly recommend
