Tokara Restaurant, situated 400 meters above sea level on top of the Helshoogte Pass outside Stellenbosch, offers its guests terroir focused contemporary cuisine, award-winning wines and dramatic views over Stellenbosch and False Bay. The building housing the restaurant is a Cape architectural icon utilising glass, steel and stone.

The restaurant, established in 2001, was renovated recently and now includes a bar with a clear view of the hustle and bustle in the kitchen or the sun setting through a picture window.

Multi-awarding winning chef Richard Carstens leads the kitchen team. The a la carte menu changes every season, while daily specials offer something new and exciting to returning guests.

    My fiancé and I had lunch at the restaurant and we’re muslim so we couldn’t eat anything with meat or alcohol in it. The waitress, manager and the chef were incredibly accommodating and the service was amazing. Thanks to all of them for making our experience so great! We’ll definitely be back.
