Did you know the Port Alfred area is home to three of the top ten restaurants in the Eastern Cape, as rated by Eat Out Magazine?

The Wharf street pub and brewery is on our door step and highly recommended by tripadvisor:

“In true pub tradition, a pie of the day is offered, filled with ingredients like local duck, cranberry and port with a deliciously crusty, homemade pastry. Portions are hefty, but very few plates go back to the kitchen unfinished. Stalwart favourites like a club sandwich or fish and chips rub shoulders with mini espetada and fried polenta cake or snails in phyllo. The chef is famous for his incredible lamb shank and crème brûlée. During avocado season, patrons can also expect to see Mexican-inspired meals on the specials list. Wash it all down with beers from the microbrewery next door while the Kowie River quietly flows past just a few metres from the pub.”

At a stone's throw away- the beautiful Kenton-on-sea is home to:

The House Kitchen and Cellar

“Breakfasts are extremely popular: the voluptuous French toast with mascarpone and berries and the Mediterranean breakfast with roast veggies and pesto spooned over hearty slices of sourdough are certainly worth the wait for a table. Over weekends, the breakfast buffet will satisfy even the pickiest eater. Finish off with a Lindt chocolate brownie with crème fraîche, or the carrot, cranberry and baby marrow health cake. The small but superb wine list will not disappoint, and caffeine aficionados flock here for the superb coffee”

And just 15kms inland from Port Alfred the village of Bathurst boasts

Kingston Farm

“Dining here is a delight to all the senses. Guests are treated to a set, seasonal meal, prepared with skill and attention to detail. The meal could include gnocchi with prawns, gruyère-cream sauce and heirloom tomato vinaigrette; a roasted, stuffed duck leg with parsnip purée, cherry chutney, shiitake mushroom jus and winter veg; and a dessert of salty caramel and dark chocolate torte with passion-fruit coulis, pistachio ice cream and droplets of bright pink rosewater syrup. White-draped tables, beautiful cutlery, bone-china side plates, sparkling glasses and fresh garden flowers invite guests to the feast. The farm also has beautiful guest cottages.”

With these amazing culinary options and a good handful more, namely The Historic Pig and Whistle ( the oldest licensed pub in South Africa) and the famous Royal Saint Andrews Hotel and Highlander pub, a visit to the heart of the Sunshine Coast is a treat for all senses.
