A New Culinary Residency
Helmed by Head Chef Vusi Ndlovu, EDGE is a culinary celebration of the African continent, focusing on under-used ingredients, progressive techniques and generational recipes.
The evolving menu highlights indigenous ingredients from local markets, artisans and small-scale farmers. With a focus on cooking over flame, dishes are reimagined in a contemporary and respectful way, reminiscent of African storytelling around the fire.
Sink into a plush seat in our contemporary lounge. An iconic space at Mount Nelson, the lounge has always been a place to gather, mingle and savour.
Refresh with a tempting cocktail or dine on delicious specialities from our lunch and dinner menus.
Or perhaps you'd like to try our renowned 'Blackboard' dinner menu. Renewed daily, this menu is a celebration of exquisite local ingredients that have inspired our chef on the day.
Nothing we do is rehearsed. Guests can look forward to a true, raw, organic experience.
Step into the gastronomic heart of the hotel and take your seat in an exclusive, hidden dining space. Watch in wonder as dishes are prepared right before your eyes—then uncover the inspiration behind each creation.
