Contemporary Casual Dining

Two restaurant options

The Peech features two restaurants on the property.

One is reserved for hotel guests only and serves breakfast, lunch & dinner.

The second, Basalt, is open to the public for dinners Tuesday to Saturday. Bookings are essential at Basalt.

Freddie Dias, former Head Chef at The Pot Luck Club in Cape Town, heads up both restaurants assisted by seasoned Maître D, Lyle Scott (previously Westcliff Four Seasons and Marabi Club).

Peech, Dias and Scott have worked closely together over the past few months to ensure a completely fresh food offering at The Peech.

Freddie sums up his menu as “contemporary global cuisine”. He aims to bring an authentic and real approach to food, using the best locally sourced seasonal produce and a straight-forward selection of entrées, mains, and desserts, with specials added as ingredients allow.

The laid-back, refined luxury for which The Peech is renowned extends to Basalt. With capacity for 40 patrons, the sophisticated space is warm and intimate. The contemporary cool grey interior is energised with plush red velvet chairs. It is situated in the original heritage house overlooking the hotel’s main entrance.
