The Cape colony has its roots as a refreshment station; a welcoming stop for weary travellers where food, wine and hospitality were never in short supply. Similarly, the Cape Dutch farms that fanned outwards from the harbour at Table Bay offered some of the finest hospitality in the land, and the ‘Cape table’ was always laden with fresh farm produce and delicious local cuisine. On Boschendal today little has changed, with the restaurants offering an array of authentic culinary experiences.
