De Grendel Restaurant Food Menu Cape Town


Our menu is based on classic, locally sourced ingredients, served in creative flavour combinations and served with an inventive, modern edge. The simple menu changes every day according to availability of ingredients.

We like to surprise our guests, that’s why you’ll find that our menu lists only the ingredients with no indication of how your meal will be prepared or which ingredients dominate (of course, if you ask, we’ll gladly tell you more).

De Grendel Restaurant Cape Town Chef Ian Bergh

Head Chef, Ian Bergh

Ian Bergh

Our Chef Ian Bergh brings a real passion for farm produce to the table and gives local artisan produce an inventive modern twist. Ian is no slave to fad and food fashions, and is an original locavore with a great respect for the seasons and their bounty. 

His hands-on training and experience are rooted in classical cuisine, having worked with Franck Dangereux at La Colombe and further honed his skills at Kurland, Five Flies and Pure at Hout Bay Manor before joining Jonathan Davies at De Grendel to launch the restaurant in 2012.

De Grendel Restaurant Cape Town Decor


It should come as no surprise to those who know the Graaff family that De Grendel Restaurant is without high-design bells and whistles or frivolous embellishments. We took our creative cue from the family farmhouse, blending it with the present with touches of De Grendel’s past. 

The glass-panelled eatery is decorated in much the same way the Graaff matriarchs adorned the historic homestead: personal paintings and old family photographs dot the walls, and we had delft-blue porcelain underplates bearing the family crest specially hand-crafted by renowned local ceramicist Mervyn Gers.

The glassed-in kitchen contains the heat and noise while letting you watch our chefs in action from the serene calm of your high-backed chairs and turned-wood tables in the dining area.
