A World of Tastes

Constantly evolving to meet the high expectations of its discerning clientele, the ever-popular Aurelia’s restaurant, extends along the northern façade of the award-winning five star Peermont D’oreale Grande hotel at Emperors Palace, has undergone an elegant, modern makeover.

The contemporary new look focuses on natural textures, incorporated into details from furniture to paint finishes. Behind the scenes, the latest state-of-the-art technology has been added to the expanded kitchen area, ensuring that every plate served is a first-class masterpiece.

Aurelia’s spectacular dinner menu has re-invented the dining experience into something otherworldly. A new Chef station located in view of the restaurant, allows guests to enjoy seeing the finishing touches being added to their meals, while the aromas add a sensory element to the occasion.

The expansive a la carte dinner menu introduces elements of molecular gastronomy, paired with a fusion of new-age Mediterranean and South African cuisines.
 
Molecular gastronomy, made famous by pioneers such as Ferran Adria and Heston Blumenthal, combines the creative art of cooking with science to create unique culinary experiences beyond anything people have tasted before. At Aurelia’s, this mind-blowing new movement is evident in mainly starters and desserts.

To accompany the food menu, Aurelia’s is serving up a wide variety of malt and blended whiskies, wines from all the great Cape vineyards, as well as local and imported beer.

Aurelia's is the perfect place to host your special occasion - birthday parties, graduation dinners or romantic treats.

For breakfast, guests can begin their day with a dazzling array of choices at the island-style buffet area in the centre of the restaurant, including cold cuts, cold fish cuts, yoghurts, freshly cut seasonal fruit and a range of fruit juices. Adjacent to the buffet area is a display area showcasing a selection of mixed breads that includes croissants, muffins, Danish pastries, baguettes, paninis and an assortment of bread loaves.

For something a little different, a sushi station offers maki, California rolls, fashion sandwiches and nigiri. The expanded hot buffet station has an egg station, and dessert section, as well as a hot self-service area for sausages, bacon, grilled vegetables and an Asian stir-fry selection.

Lunch at Aurelia’s remains a relaxed yet elegant affair, where fresh produce and seasonal ingredients receive a uniquely modern twist. The ‘made to order’ lunch concept menu features delicious daily creations that include a selection of tapas, gourmet sandwiches and crafted salads.
