South Africa Tourism Awards

Type: Restaurant
Category: Service Excellence

Motivation for award: Salsify’s multi-course, fine-dining menu – driven by the seasons and grounded in technique- pushes boundaries in terms of delicate yet intense flavours, interesting textures, and an unrelenting pursuit of excellence. Inspired by the Cape’s nature amongst which Salsify is situated (both of mountain and sea), Chef Ryan Cole and his consummate team have created a series of intelligent, restrained and utterly compelling dishes – with spectacular views, premium wines, chic interiors, and top-notch service enhancing the overall experience. Salsify’s, seasonally driven, hyper local approach is sustainability you can taste, the chef constantly changes the menu based on available produce. In addition, all the fish served in the restaurant is either caught by Cole or his brother. Ensuring not only its freshness but also peace of mind that it has been ethically sourced and has a low impact on the environment, underlining Ryan’s dedication to sustainability.

Region: Western Cape /
