The Pot Luck Club, Cape town’s pioneer of Small Plates dining is getting ready for a sizzling summer lineup.


Over a decade has passed since The Pot Luck Club first opened, and guess what? Luke Dale Roberts’ iconic rooftop restaurant is still the talk of the town in Cape Town’s culinary scene, serving up mind-blowing creative small plates that you’ve got to taste to believe!

Picture this: The Pot Luck Club kicked off back in 2012, right at the heart of Woodstock’s The Old Biscuit Mill. And just when you thought they couldn’t get any cooler, they upped their game – moving to the top of the original flour silos.

Talk about dining with a view! But the real showstopper? The menu that’s basically a wild rollercoaster ride through Asian-inspired goodness.

Hold on to your taste buds because The Pot Luck Club set the trend for small-plate dining in Cape Town. They planted the flag and dared everyone else to follow. Many joined in, but let’s be real – The Pot Luck Club is the original cool kid who started it all, and they’re not fading into the background.

Imagine bold flavors giving your taste buds a high-five, cocktails winking at you, and an atmosphere that practically dances around you. Oh, and did we mention the unparalleled cityscape backdrop?

Since 2019, Executive Chef Jason Kosmas has been making magic happen, cranking up the flavor dial. He’s like the conductor of a flavor orchestra, and every dish is a delicious melody.

But wait, there’s more – he’s also the genius behind The Pot Luck Club’s spot in Johannesburg, and spoiler alert: it’s a hit. This guy knows his way around a kitchen and isn’t shy about showing it.

“I’m the kind of chef who gets bored if things aren’t sizzling. So, I’m always mixing things up, experimenting with flavors and angles,”

And when it comes to flavors, get ready for a seafood journey that’s basically summer on a plate. Jason’s taken inspiration from Australia’s ‘fish butcher’ and dry-aged fish for an explosion of flavors. Jason’s dry-aged tuna belly is a superstar in the seafood world – it’s the A-lister, no joke!

But Jason isn’t just ruling the kitchen – he’s mentored by Luke Dale Roberts, the grand-master of culinary innovation.

While The Pot Luck Club dishes might look like stars on your plate, the real magic is in the secret sauce – literally! Jason isn’t kidding when he says those sauces are the best wingman a dish could have.

“Our sauces are like the ultimate hype squad. They bring out the best in every dish, adding layers of flavor that’ll make your taste buds high-five each other.”

Ready for the highlight? The smoked beef fillet with black pepper and truffle café au lait sauce. It’s so smooth, it’s like a spa day for your mouth. And here’s the kicker – this masterpiece has been impressing diners since day one, and it’s here to stay.

But hold on, the ‘Family Favourites’ section is the friend who’s always got your back. These dishes are the OGs, the staples, the ones that define The Pot Luck Club. They might get a makeover every now and then, but chickpea fries and fish sliders? They’re the life of the party.

And about the other dishes – they’re unsung heroes. Bold flavors give you a high-five with every bite. And the secret ingredient? Smoke and fire. They’re like superheroes in the kitchen, adding extra oomph to every dish.

Now, imagine a springbok tataki that’s had a fire-seared makeover, or a hake that’s partying in a smoked fish bone broth. And the beef tongue? It gets a flame-kissed finish and teams up with mussels and black rice for a flavor symphony.

Even the veggie options are getting a gourmet upgrade. From roasted beetroot tartare to Cape Malay-inspired cauliflower – these dishes redefine plant-based deliciousness.

But the fun doesn’t stop at the food – oh no! The drinks menu is a carnival for your taste buds. Cocktails inspired by Asian flavors, fresh and seasonal, with tea infusions, purees, and juice cordials. Sake cocktails get a spicy makeover, and the Thai Green Curry Martini steals the show.
