A Cape of Storms winter lunch menu

Launched last year, Cape Town’s signature ethically harvested seafood restaurant GALJOEN has introduced a multi-course winter lunch menu, offering exceptional value at only R550 per person.

Situated in historic District Six, GALJOEN fast became synonymous with exceptional South African shoreline dining, showcasing the finest sustainably caught seafood found along the Cape coast.

Drawing on their culinary expertise honed at sibling restaurant and mega-hit Belly of the Beast, chef patron duo Neil Swart and Anouchka Horn – alongside GALJOEN’s head chef Isca Stoltz – have crafted a winter lunch menu that embraces the Cape of Storms season.

“At Galjoen, we’re passionate about showcasing the incredible diversity of South African seafood and use the opportunity to also highlight the critical importance of responsible dining practices,” explains Horn. It’s a clear-cut philosophy of, “if it’s not ethically sourced from South African shores, you won’t find it on the menu“, further comments Swart.

Led by head chef Stoltz, GALJOEN’s kitchen is dedicated to creating dishes that celebrate the natural flavours of fresh produce from the sea. Stoltz taps into childhood memories of holidays in Mozambique, where shellfish was gathered along the coastline and fish procured fresh from the local market. Each GALJOEN dish highlights the freshness of the seafood, ensuring it takes centre stage.

“Our winter lunch menu reflects the changing season and the bounty of the sea. In every dish, our primary emphasis is on the ingredients,” states Stoltz. Our kitchen’s aim is to showcase their true essence.”

GALJOEN has partnered with leading seafood suppliers committed to sustainable fishing practices. From farmed mussels sourced from Saldanha Bay to a variety of fish caught by artisanal fishers, the restaurant prioritises quality and sustainability in every dish. The menu is not restricted to a specific number of courses; it’s all about what’s available from local fishers and merchants and what inspires chef Stoltz.

GALJOEN’s multi-course winter lunch menu is a testament to the team’s commitment to offering exceptional value without compromising on authenticity and quality.

Lunch at R550 per person: 12h30, Thursday to Saturday, valid until 31 August 2024.

GALJOEN is located in Cape Town’s historic CBD at 99 Harrington Street. Reserve your table online.
