Since opening in 2007, the Rust en Vrede Restaurant has shaped the way we think about wine and food. Our aim is to show guests how a dining experience can be heightened by the combination of outstanding wine with excellent food.

Our restaurant is housed in the Estate’s original cellar, a historic monument which has been transformed into a sophisticated yet relaxing fine-dining setting. We’ve done our best to preserve the unique charm of the building so that guests are transported back to simpler times, where good wine and food are central to the experience.

Chef Fabio Daniel serves contemporary French cuisine, adding his own unique flair taking inspiration from his Brazilian and Italian heritage. Having worked under both previous head chefs, David Higgs and John Shuttleworth, he continues our tradition of sourcing only the freshest and best ingredients from sustainable producers.

Our international wine list is overseen by sommelier James Mukosi, who works closely with Chef Fabio to find the best wine pairings for each dish. Combining a balanced menu with wines to enhance each dish, rounded off with stellar service, we aim to offer you a singular experience.
