The Jordan Restaurant

The Jordan Restaurant
One of the first signature chef restaurants in the Cape Winelands, Jordan Restaurant brought Chef George Jardine’s brand of contemporary fare from city to country in 2009.
The focus is on the flavours of locally sourced, seasonal ingredients paired with the award-winning wines of Jordan Wine Estate.
The menu changes often depending on the best seasonal produce available. The steamed Saldanha mussels, Chalmar sirloin, and honey and poppyseed soufflé remain signature dishes, and you can expect ever-changing vegetarian and fish dishes such as asparagus tart with mushroom duxelles, pan-roasted hake with a chickpea crust, roasted cauliflower, and pancetta butter.
A trip to the walk-in cheese room to select your choice of artisanal South African cheeses with preserves rounds off a spectacular meal.

Dinner is a gastronomic experience, providing the opportunity for George and Louise to wow their guests.

Booking is essential. For reservations please contact or telephone +27 (0) 21 881 3612.

About Chef George Jardine:

Having trained under Michelin starred chef Jean Christophe Novelli in London, George moved to Cape Town in 1997 to open Novelli at The Cellars, before travelling the world to open and work in award-winning restaurants in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Sydney.

George returned to South Africa in 2006 to open Jardine Restaurant, named in Eat Out’s top ten for six consecutive years, and listed in the San Pellegrino World’s 100 Best Restaurants in 2008 and 2009. George was also named the Eat Out Johnnie Walker South African Chef of the Year in 2007.

George Jardine’s move to the Jordan Restaurant in 2009 has added substance to Stellenbosch taking over the Gourmet Capital crown of South Africa with no fewer than 4 of the Top 10 restaurants situated in Stellenbosch.

The Jordan Restaurant with George Jardine opened in 2009 in a renovated tobacco curing house surrounded by vineyards overlooking a lake below the cellar and tasting room.

George Jardine said: “Jordan Wine Estate has an absolutely stunning setting, and is the perfect place for Louise and me to personally attend to our guests, to pamper their palates and de-stress their minds, letting them experience the highest levels of cuisine and service matched to some truly great wines.

The Jordan Restaurant with George Jardine has remained in the Top 20 of the Eat Out Awards for 9 years running.
