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.

    Pulling into the parking lot I noticed kids lining up for the sculpture garden I think. The joy & excitement on their faces were priceless. Walking into Skotnet, the ambience and welcoming atmosphere gave me the satisfaction of knowing I chose the perfect restaurant to have lunch with my loved ones.

    Food not good. Wine selection terrible. Ran out of stock on a few items. Bad management of the restaurant.

    Adrian is a lovely waiter- hope he remains with you! The food was good though a little less aioli with the calamari would be better. It’s very rich!
