The Vineyard Hotel
This year the Vineyard Hotel in Newlands has an intimate outdoor feast planned for just eight couples, as well as a popular romance-themed dinner at the Square Restaurant.
The River Garden Tables
Those lucky enough to book in time will find themselves relaxing in the tranquillity of the Vineyard Hotel’s gardens, under the stars next to the old footbridge over the Liesbeek River.
Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel on ice
The Vineyard is partnering with Simonsig Wine Estate to make this a truly memorable evening. While savouring tempting morsels from the Valentine’s Day Picnic menu, each couple will enjoy their choice of red or wine wine. The menu includes hot-smoked salmon with baby potato and dill gribiche, pulled roast shoulder of pork, country-style duck terrine and chicken, asparagus and tarragon galantine; cheeses, preserves, pickles and crackers, chocolate mousse, strawberry shortbread cheesecake… The food of love!
Carl van Rooyen, Executive Chef at The Vineyard
Valentine’s Day Dinner at Square Restaurant will be a showcase of Chef Carl van Rooyen’s most romantic recipes. After Chef’s amuse-bouches, Vineyard Valentines will enjoy a choice of a taste-bud-tantalising chilled strawberry and melon soup with basil and black pepper goat’s cheese, or velvety smoked ostrich carpaccio with grilled figs, caramelised pecan nuts and shaved pecorino.
The Square Restaurant
Main-course options are a choice between succulent Chateaubriand fillet flambéed for two at the table and served with a béarnaise sauce, or fragrant trout en croute with sauce vierge with new potatoes and summer baby vegetables.
The evening draws to a seductive end with cherry, pistachio and chocolate dulce, mixed berry sorbet and toffee for dessert.
