Enjoy breakfast or an ‘alfresco’ lunch at The Bakery at Jordan followed by a bespoke ‘Synergy between Soul and Soil’ tour of the Jordan vineyards and wine cellar. Lunch or dinner at the Jordan Restaurant is an unforgettable experience where Chef George Jardine’s seasonal menu captivates one with outstanding flavours, textures and techniques.
One of the first signature chef restaurants in the Cape Winelands, the Jordan Restaurant with George Jardine brings top chef George Jardine’s brand of contemporary fare from city to country. The focus on the flavours of locally sourced, seasonal ingredients is evident from his kitchen vegetable and herb garden to wine barrel fish smoker and wood-fired oven. Expect smoky, smouldering country flavours in simple combinations on a contemporary plate – with signature smoked yellowtail, steamed Saldanha mussels, seared ribeye and springbok potroast. The main ingredient is enhanced by smoked garlic, aubergine, fennel, prune or potato puree. A trip to the walk-in cheese room to select your own board of artisanal Cape farm cheeses with preserves and breads rounds off a spectacular meal.
Vintages from Jordan Wine Estate form the cornerstone of the restaurants wine list. The Jordan Restaurant is also a showcase for exclusive vintages of the Jordan Wine Estate Cape Winemakers Guild wines, along with choice wines from other Stellenbosch wineries.
Cool and contemporary, the restaurant features a tranquil terrace with stunning views overlooking the vineyards and lake next to the Jordan cellar and tasting room.
Dinner is a gastronomic experience, providing the opportunity for George and Louise to wow their guests.
