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.

    Great location, good food, and excellent staff sets The Skotnes apart from other restaurants in the area. Highly recommended.

    Being a vegan, sadly Skotnes hardly has anything on the menu. I especially went for breakfast as I love their smashed avo on toast but they didn’t even have avocados which are in season and plentiful at the moment. I was able to order fried tomatoes, mushrooms etc which wasn’t on their menu and it was a lovely meal. It would be so great if they had at least 2 or 3 interesting vegan meals on their menu.
