Restaurant of the Year: The Test Kitchen

The Test Kitchen space is distinctly industrial with brick walls, oak beams, ducts and pipes exposing the integrity and honesty of the building. The tables are made of oxidised mild steel and have a consciously rough, rusted appearance in harmony with the surrounds.

An open plan kitchen engages directly with the guests seated at the wooden bar that wraps around it. The dining room is small, seating only 65. The guests are able to see and hear the buzz of the chefs at work, and smell what’s coming next across the pass.
The space creates a sense of creativity that extends to the food, with delectable lunch choices and indulgent dinners.

Best Asian Restaurant: Kyoto Garden Sushi

Do not be fooled by the name, because this award winning restaurant is about much more than just sushi.

Situated in Tamboerskloof, Cape Town this Asian eatery offers fine dining in a zen ambience that will definitely help you destress while you enjoy your meal. The menu consists of traditional Asian dishes and divine fresh sushi.

From delicious soups to almost sinfully delicious cheese cake, Café Bloom offers diners a chance to really sit back and relax while eating food that brings a smile to your face.

Best Italian Restaurant: La Sosta

Tired of so-called “Italian dining” that only offers pasta in a tomato sauce or something similar? Then La Sosta in the beautiful Swellendam, Western Cape is a must-visit restaurant.

Here the menu is loaded with authentic Italian dishes, heavenly desserts and award winning local and international wines. 

Best Steakhouse: The Local Grill (Parktown North)

We are all for restaurants that push our taste buds with new and exciting flavours and combinations, but there is just something so comforting about the perfectly grilled steak. 

The Local Grill has become a legend in Parktown North, Johannesburg with its focus on offering the best of South African meat - do not despair if you aren’t into meat, the restaurant offers fish, poultry and vegetarian options as well.
