South Africa’s leading lights in the restaurant world will be honoured at the 2017 Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards on Sunday, 19 November at Grand West in Cape Town.
The Top 10 restaurants will be revealed in the Acqua Panna and S.Pellegrino sponsored oscar style ceremony with an exciting countdown from the top 20 places.
Each shortlisted restaurant was judged by a team of experts who remained anonymous throughout the process and made their decision based on three criteria, namely: Menu, service and ambience.
Last year The Test Kitchen took the top spot with UK born chef Luke Dale-Roberts at the helm, La Colombe restaurant, also located in Cape Town came second and The Restaurant at Waterkloof with chef Gregory Czarnecki was a close third. Who will snag this year's top spots?
