The Test Kitchen

Looking for the best restaurants in Cape Town? Try The Test Kitchen where Chef Luke Dale-Roberts wows foodies from across the globe. The Test Kitchen is the top place to go for a really special meal in Cape Town.

This foodie heaven is located at the Old Biscuit Mill in cool, arty but still edgy Woodstock, an emerging hipster inner suburb. Offering fine, creative, innovative and extremely delicious food, The Test Kitchen is by far one of our favorite restaurants in the world. It really tops our list of the best restaurants we’ve ever dined. Truly a culinary adventure!

Talented Chef Luke Dale-Roberts made his name at La Colombe at the Constantia Uitsig Wine Estate, one of Cape Town‘s most well-loved and awarded restaurants. He founded the trendy Test Kitchen in order to experiment. Here, he indulges you with a multi-course menu or a la carte culinary delights. Think of dishes like Pork Belly with parsley pressed apples, wild rosemary infused honey, blue cheese cream and crackling and Grilled Scallop with fine bean, tofu miso suke, braised scallop, miso on toast and braised & raw shitake. The plates of food arriving at your table are so exquisitely composed, it almost seems criminal to eat them. But once you try Test Kitchen’s exciting dishes you’ll be glad you did. We tried Test Kitchen’s 5 course lunch menu. For the all-important dessert, don’t miss the delicious combination of assiette of chocolate, grilled white chocolate, cinnamon spong, caramelia cremeux and guanja parfait. So tasty!

The Test Kitchen scores also points for its casual vibe and industrial chic design. Really stylish!

This culinary hotspot in Cape Town serves lunch from Tuesday to Saturday and dinner from Tuesday to Saturday. Make sure you book in advance. You can also reserve a table at The Pot Luck Club, Luke Dale-Roberts’ other hip dining venue next door.
