Restaurant Review: Signal Cape Grace Hotel

Restaurant Review: Signal Cape Grace Hotel

08 May 2013

Monday night I was invited to experience the luxury lifestyle and food of the Cape Grace Hotel, Spa and Signal Restaurant. The Cape Grace Hotel is one of the hotels I value most in Cape Town with all their attention to detail and historic features that makes it very special.

They have the perfect view of Cape Town and Table Mountain from every angle and it is literally a picture perfect location. Signal restaurant is one of the top restaurants in Cape Town and it has 2 dishes that has won best dish at the Taste of Cape Town as well as V&A Waterfront "Master of the Trade Route" competitions 2012. Walking into the restaurant it reminds me of the luxurious dining area of the Titanic with crystal chandeliers, romantic printed carpets and a warm atmosphere.

It was the first time I saw a menu and had no clue what to choose as everything looked amazing. We had a choice between a tasting menu or their glamorous A la carté menu that could both be enjoyed with amazing wine pairings that I highly recommend.

We started our meal with delicious fresh baked rolls and basil butter:

I had the scallops wrapped in black forest ham, cauliflower puree, charred sweet corn and ham veloute. It was the first time I had scallops and it has a very subtle taste and it is the perfect starter as it is not too heavy.

Ritza had the grilled prawns, green risotto and spiced mango foam. It was a gorgeous dish and has been voted Orbit Best Dish at Taste of Cape Town 2012. The colours of the starter was incredible and it is to date her favourite risotto in Cape Town.

I had the very popular bototie-spiced springbok loin, parsnip puree, spiced mango pickle, almond crumble and rooibos-scented lentil jus that simply melted in my mouth. The textures and flavours of the dish was complicated and the perfect combination. Definitely worthy of the prize winner for the V&A Waterfront "Master of the Trade Route" competition 2012.

Ritza had grilled fillet of chalmar beef, potato fondant, caramelised onion tart and truffled wild mushroom sauce. The meat was cooked to perfection and the sauce was absolutely incredible and the perfect addition to the meal.

Of course this is my favourite part to a meal, especially in terms of presentation!

I had the milk chocolate mousse, butternut genoise and granny smith apple sorbet. The sorbet was amazing and it was a light and delicious ending to a fabulous meal.

Ritza had the fondant soufflé tartlet, salted caramel creme, nyangbo cremeux, amaretto ice cream, coffee granita and raison coulis. The ice cream was incredible and who can resist a deep, rich chocolate fondant!

Thank you Signal Restaurant and Jana van der Spuy for this amazing gourmet experience. The food, the service and the company was amazing and Signal Restaurant is something that you HAVE to to try in Cape Town. What a beautiful night out!
