A TRULY UNIQUE DINING EXPERIENCE

INTERACTIVE DINING

The Cooking Theatre is a unique dining concept in the heart of the
Waterfront precinct created by executive chef Brett Nussey.

The menu is a blend of international and re-imagined
South African flavours featuring locally foraged ingredients.

The venue boasts beautifully created ‘Media Racion’ plates set in an
elegantly styled working kitchen.

SUPERB CUISINE

Our dishes consist of local seasonal produce with a focus on a blend of international and South African cuisine, highlighting foraged and sustainably sourced local ingredients to allow patrons to savour the qualities of each menu item.

WORLD CLASS WINES

We have selected wines that are paired specifically with the recipes we have created.  Every vineyard has a history and each wine tells a story, and that story unfolds with the pairing of wine and food as the evening progresses.

INTERACTIVE CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE

The Best Table In Town

Fine Dining experience

The Cooking Theatre offers an immersive and cutting-edge experience a little different from standard restaurant dining.

Our tables are positioned to offer a view of everything happening in the kitchen, combining fine dining with experimental moments.

 – It’s interactive.

 – It’s unconventional.

– It’s extraordinary.

– It’s true culinary theatre.

It all takes place right in front of you.

“I can’t work in a domestic kitchen – it’s just too confined.

There’s no freedom and there’s no buzz.”

– Marco Pierre White

FEATURED MENU

We have a host of interesting and unusual dishes to tickle your tastebuds.

Much of our food is foraged and we use only the freshest seasonal ingredients to make up our menu items. This means that our menu changes continuously. We will always feature menu a few favourite dishes, but as the menu changes so often, you never know what may present itself on the evening. Our menu also features student creations which have been perfected for your enjoyment.

Expect to be inspired, delighted and appeased.
