‘Bringing people together and celebrating the good things in life’
‘Through a winding, leafy roadway atop a hill sits the elegant Flavours Restaurant situated at the exquisite Devon Valley Hotel in the Stellenbosch valley. Sturdy white framed doors and windows encloses the wooden-floored dining area with numerous square tables draped in crisp white table cloths, sparkling crockery, sterling cutlery and high-back dark wooden dining chairs.
Once seated and asked for your choice of still or sparkling water, scrumptious, warm homemade rolls will be served for you to enjoy while you decide on your dishes.
As a starter, their fresh unique Red Salad consists of everything red; red salad leaves, beetroot, strawberries and more drizzled with a luscious raspberry vinaigrette. A light, yet satisfying starter. You may also try their Asparagus and Proscuittto, served with blackened red pimento. Both starters have hints of sweet and savoury, which set the tone for your upcoming dishes.
Their Rack of Karoo Lamb with basil-pecan crust served with glazed naartjies is a top menu item. The sweet and acidic note of naartjies neutralizes the taste buds in between mouthfuls, so each new bite is like a new experience. Another great option is the Saffron Truffled Line Fish served with Arborio risotto and saffron butter sauce. The fresh fish and the texture of the risotto complement each other well. Finish off your meal with a crisp sweet, mint ice-cream filled with crunchy chunks of dark chocolate.
Vast collection of some of the Stellenbosch Vallley wines are on offer. Try their Ghost Tree – Three Colours White house wine which is a blend of Chenin Blanc, Colombard, and a hint of Hanepoot; perfect for any seafood dish. The SylvanVale Pinotage Reserve 2005 is full-bodied with sweet cherry hints, this pairs well with any meat dish.
Finish off your evening in the comfortable Cedarwood Lounge & Bar. Should you attend in the Summer season you can enjoy live music and wood-fired pizzas in the luscious courtyard. Weddings, small parties and conference facilities are also available.’
