The move to plant-centred menus is taking the world by storm and this is how the Mount Nelson is catering to the growing demand for vegetarian and vegan cuisine across its restaurants.

Executive Chef George Jardine:

“The Chef’s Table is the heart of Mount Nelson’s kitchen and we have recently re-imagined the space to create a warm and inviting environment where our guests can have a luxurious experience and enjoy the entertainment of the kitchen. Expect intimate dining and a space that offers a mix of Old-World charm and contemporary elements. Our inspiration for the menu is derived from our location, surrounded by the fertile agricultural lands of the Western Cape, we want to show off the best of our region.”
