 209 Beach Rd, Sea Point

laperla@mweb.co.za

La Perla 021 439 9538

This long-time Sea Point favourite with the cognoscenti continues to serve dependable cuisine without any major surprises. The menu is vast but understandable for anyone who has eaten Italian food, and who hasn’t?

 

The carpaccio; beef done four ways; salmon with thinly sliced red onions, chilli, ginger and coriander; and tuna with wasabi and soya are deliciously light and just the way to start a meal which will invariably feature some kind of pasta.

 

Resist the temptation to eat all the fabulous bread and save room for excellent lasagne and ravioli, either with meat, pumpkin or crayfish – all delicious. Some of these are fatta a mano (handmade) and are all the better for it. 28 kinds of fish follow, including great platters to share, right down to excellent fish and chips.

 

Steaks and chicken dishes include a speciality called tagliate – thinly sliced beef served on a hot plate with accompaniments like tomato, asparagus and parmesan. Also recommended is the fillet with green and pink peppercorns.

 

Desserts are (except for the vanilla ice cream) made right on the premises. Sweet treats like panna cotta, tiramisu, and semi freddo chocolate nougat keep diners coming back for more.

161 Dorp St, Stellenbosch Central, Stellenbosch

Eendracht Hotel +27 (0) 21 883 8843

Eendracht was erected in the oldest part of Stellenbosch, next to the Village Museum which consists of four historical houses in Stellenbosch and forms the core of the historic town.

 

At 161 Dorp Street stands the interesting and atmospheric building of the Eendracht Hotel. The site of this double-storey building, and the parking area behind it, is on the original part of the island on which Simon van der Stel camped during his first exploration of the valley of the Eerste River. The island has long since vanished, but the river flows merrily seawards past the eastern side of the parking ground, behind Eendracht Hotel.

 

The first building on the site was a simple little two-roomed thatched cottage erected by a French lady, Sarah Couchet, widow of Guillaume du Toit. She built her cottage after the disastrous Stellenbosch fire of 1710. She died in 1714 and a succession of owners added additional rooms and made modifications to the cottage in order to accommodate larger broods of children and relatives.

 

Archaeological research on the site of this old cottage has revealed many interesting relics of the various owners. Chinese porcelain, kitchen utensils, fragments of linen, early smoking pipe bowls, and metal fragments from an early iron, copper and silversmith’s work yard were found. A particularly interesting occupant of the cottage was the artist Jan Adam Hartman who lived there during the period 1790-1801.
