Exclusive lodge experience

Since its relaunch in October 2019, Tintswalo Atlantic is focusing on its resident guests to provide an exclusive lodge experience for 24 guests. The WWW lunch is therefore the only opportunity for visitors who are not staying over in the hotel, to enjoy a meal at the iconic property.

Diners can expect wholesome and fresh, seasonal cuisine and honest, uncomplicated seaside fare served in one of Cape Town’s most unique locations.

The cuisine is complemented with a wine list that includes some of South Africa’s best vintages, including top quality local wines from Hout Bay, Constantia and Cape Point wineries.

Tintswalo Atlantic Wednesday lunch menu

Wednesday lunch at Tintswalo Atlantic is a relaxed affair which starts with a complimentary welcome drink on the deck where guests may enjoy the magnificent setting and sea views. Head Chef Thando Jaxa is then ready at the barbeque station to kickstart the lunch with a traditional South African braai experience. Delicious bites from the grill may include Glazed Lamb Satay with Tzatziki; a Haloumi, Basil and Zucchini Skewer with Roasted Red Pepper & Almond Puree; and Mussel and Crostini Pot served with lemon wedges and herb parmesan.

Next to follow is a Tapas Platter that will include Seared Tuna with Sesame, Honey & Soy Dressing and Mange Tout & Sweet Corn Salsa, and a Garlic & Thyme Chicken Thigh served with Brown Lentil Cassoulet, Grilled Oyster Mushrooms and Grain Mustard Jus. Vegetarian options include Herb Polenta with Glazed Beetroot, Parsnip & Parsley Mousse and Buttered Edamame.

A multi-sensory experience, guests are seated on the wooden deck to inhale the fresh sea breeze at the shoreline. In cooler weather the elegant dining room with its open kitchen enables diners to enjoy an interactive dining experience.  Main course options include freshly caught Atlantic Yellow Tail with Carrot & Ginger, Chimichurri Gnocchi and Sautéed Fennel; Parmesan & Thyme Crusted Beef Fillet with Potato Fondant, Burnt Baby Onions, Asparagus Spears and Coffee Jus; or Harissa Cous Cous with King Oyster Mushroom, Peas, Garlic Pak Choi, Confit Baby Tomatoes and Herb Beurre Blanc.

Lunch ends on another high note with Traditional Malva Pudding with Malva Sauce and Vanilla Ice Cream. This is followed by tea/coffee and friandise of Banoffee Bites or Hazelnut Truffles, before departing guests have the opportunity to participate in a special Tintswalo Atlantic farewell custom that was started by the owners of Tintswalo, the Corbett/Goosen family. Tintswalo is a magical place and so guests are invited to make their own, personal wish by casting a smooth pebble into the ocean, leaving only good thoughts and memories behind, and taking this special memory away with them.

Destined to be one of the most sought-after culinary encounters in Cape Town, the 4-course Tintswalo WWW lunch experience is available every Wednesday at R960 per person. For reservations call 021 201 0025, or email reception@atlantic.tintswalo.com
