The Test Kitchen: try it out!

The Test Kitchen: try it out!

Among the best restaurants in Cape Town, The Test Kitchen offers surprising dishes in an industrial setting.

Voted one of the World's 50 Best Restaurants in 2015 and the Best Restaurant in Africa, The Test Kitchen has passed its exams with flying colours and has reaped multiple awards. The kitchen of the British chef Luke Dale-Roberts remains a laboratory for flavour creation where he extracts the best from his quality ingredients.

As he has said: 'If there is no immediate smile as we create a new dish then we are on the wrong track. I want guests to be surprised and delighted, to wonder what ingredients we have used and how we made it. It should be an adventure!' Indeed, adventure can be found here in The Old Biscuit Mill, where he began in 2010.

Expect a tasting menu that will take you to France, Asia, and South Africa. However, as the menu changes frequently, the destinations do too. Remember to book far in advance of your visit; the waiting list is months long!
