I’ve been cheating on the Cape Winelands with Elgin Valley for a while now. It’s a big love affair and although I want to share the good news from Elgin with you, I also kinda want to keep it just to myself, so that it doesn’t become another overcrowded tourist trap. It ticks all the boxes for me: high in the mountains, simple country vibe, lushness, orchards, happy people making extraordinary food. Simplicity and sophistication, not an easy combination, but SALT gets it bang on.
On the Marque PR sent some news about SALT restaurant’s winter menu. So I’ll share, happily. Because SALT is a very good restaurant and the Elgin Valley is beautiful.
The food, service and views at Paul Cluver’s SALT are all exceptional.
Go there, if you can. You will be changed for the better. Take your time, linger, and make the most of it.
‘Keep the cold at bay this winter with a 3-course menu (a choice of dishes per course) from SALT @ Paul Cluver, with each course paired to perfection with a great glass of wine. Stunning value at R400pp.
The menu features a seasonal salad or game fish starter, pork belly or springbok rump for mains and sweet, delicious decadence for dessert. A seasonal vegetarian main of the day is also available. Add to all of this the breathtaking vistas of the fruit orchards, lush gardens, the Groenland Mountains as well as a cosy fireplace, and you have all the ingredients for magical day out.
This exceptional lunch-time special is available Tuesday to Sunday (SALT is closed on Mondays), and bookings are advisable. For more information or bookings contact the restaurant on email@example.com’
My own experience of lunching at SALT was that it is sophisticated yet homey, a beautiful and relaxing space with amazing vineyard views and great service. The food is prepared with care, a lot of love, and passion. It’s a really personal, humanising experience to lunch at SALT.
SALT at Paul Cluver is on the award-winning Paul Cluver Wine Estate in the Elgin Wine Valley, approximately 60 minutes from Cape Town.
