Harbour House Presents:
To the delight of Cape Town foodies, Harbour House Constantia Nek has given this much-loved destination a new lease of gourmet life. Stellar chef Dylan Laity joins the Harbour House Group to launch our first fine dining restaurant at the landmark Constantia Nek site.
The latest exciting development for the picturesque setting is The Restaurant @ The Nek, with local talent Dylan Laity proudly at its helm.
Dylan comes to The Restaurant @ The Nek from The Roundhouse in Camps Bay, where he earned himself two consecutive Top 21 Restaurants and One Plate Awards in the prestigious JHP Gourmet Guide for 2017 and 2018. Prior to his term at this Cape Town fine dining stalwart, Dylan honed his skills at Aubergine, one of the city’s most consistently excellent fine dining eateries. He also cites his years spent in Michelin Star restaurant in London as some of his most formative and certainly where his journey to crafting the best seasonal produce into superb edible art was set.
We will be serving modern South African cuisine with definite influences from Dylan’s travels abroad. There will be a good mix of seafood, vegetarian, vegan and meat courses and we’re determined to use only the best and most seasonal produce we can source.
Diners can expect bold flavour marriages but always a grounded approach to cuisine and often some interesting South African twists – some of the signatures that have already made it onto the launch menu include the likes of Mozambique Langoustines with amasi, kimchi and smoked trout roe and Rare Karan Beef Sirloin seasoned with Rooikrans Coal Oil and fermented chillies.
“My cooking style is very natural, seasonal and ingredient-driven. I like to use modern techniques and plating styles but never let that be the focus of the dish, it’s all about the flavour and product quality”, explains Dylan.
The Restaurant @ The Nek is set to become the next best on Cape Town’s fine dining list. Enjoy a first-hand experience of gourmet life at its best.
