Fine Dining at the Taj Cape Town

{pp}Taj brings three new restaurants and concept bars to the Cape Town city centre.

Today, Cape Town is just as famous for its food as it is for its mountain and surrounding seas. Its restaurants rank among some of the world's best - often a combination of award-winning chefs and fresh, high-quality ingredients sourced locally. It's in the City Bowl that you'll find some of Cape Town's leading restaurants and bars and, taking its cue from the trendsetting city, the new Taj Hotel in Cape Town adds three fantastic concept restaurants to the mix.

"We look forward to welcoming diners to the brand new Mint restaurant, as well as our upmarket champagne and oyster bar, Twankey," says Theo Cromhout, Sales and Marketing Manager of Taj Hotels in South Africa. "Patrons are also invited to enjoy the finest cigars and cocktails in our cigar lounge." The Taj Hotel in Cape Town, the first Taj Hotel in South Africa, is set to be unveiled in December.

"We're also very excited to be introducing the Bombay Brasserie, which is an Indian-inspired restaurant that fuses the flavours of the East with the traditional Malay influences of the Cape," added Cromhout.

At the Taj Cape Town, diners will experience innovative wining and dining in the heart of St George's Mall, where local fare is served in a trendy but relaxed setting. Catering to every culinary whim, the Taj Hotel provides a unique dining experience in the City Bowl, where locals can relax and visitors can experience the hospitality of the Cape.

Eating out in Cape Town's City Bowl
Taj Cape Town is excited to present its new restaurants and bars in the popular St George's Mall precinct. Mint restaurant offers all-day dining in a stylish and cosy setting. With its innovative design, the three-level restaurant features a floor-to-ceiling wine wall, wine-tasting corner, and an impressive open-plan kitchen, which enables guests to glimpse the inner workings of a busy restaurant kitchen.

As the sun starts to set, the trendy Cape Town and international set rub shoulders at Twankey, a chic champagne and seafood bar featuring live jazz and decadent fare. Later, guests are invited to the Bombay Brasserie, where delicious Indian fare and exotic décor make for a satisfying dining experience.

The city centre has enjoyed renewed popularity over the last few years, thanks to extensive redevelopment that has restored its upmarket appeal. Trendsetters and visitors have begun to stream into the area - and so, naturally, have leading restaurateurs. With a backdrop of Table Mountain and a buzz in the air, the Cape Town City Bowl is the ideal location for fine dining.

Renowned South African wines
Most restaurants in the CBD feature extensive wine lists, and knowledgeable sommeliers will make recommendations to compliment your meal. As a leading luxury hotel and dining destination, the Taj Cape Town offers a wide range of local wines to be enjoyed on their own, or alongside our delicious signature dishes.
