3-course Dinner at Charcoal Dining! Dine with Chef Roy van Litsenborgh


New Restaurant: Charcoal Dining in the Heart of Cape Town

Charcoal Dining Winter marks a time to share cozy meals with friends, warming up next to a fireplace and chatting over wine…! Come meet new friends and rediscover Cape Town!

Roy van Litsenborgh from Charcoal Dining Charcoal Dining is the love child between restauranteur Roy van Litsenborgh & designer Bettina Scheffler. Since moving to Cape Town, they wanted to create a personalised and intimate fine dining venue in the city! The dream came to life through Bettina’s passion for interior design and Roy’s vast culinary experience (think Pepper Club, Rhodes Memorial Restaurant, Richard’s Supper Stage).

Roy & Bettina’s menu changes weekly, using local seasonal produce from Oranjezicht City Farm, free range and organic supplies wherever possible!
