We invite guests to enjoy either a 2 or 3-course meal prepared by executive chef Annelie Badenhorst. As the Pop-up restaurant does not have a liquor license we will provide Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate's wines, which have been carefully paired with the food by our sommelier, on a complimentary basis. Alternatively, guests are welcome to consume their own champagne, MCC or spirits on-site.

The Pop-up restaurant will showcase the beautiful Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate for a few months over season while a new tourism centre is being built which will include a fine dining restaurant, conference facilities, wine tasting facilities, wine cellar and delicatessen.


Who's Cooking?

Chef Annelie Badenhorst

Chef Annelie Badenhorst hails from the beautiful Otjiwarongo in Namibia. Annie’s training in classic French cooking at the Zevenwacht Chef School, combined with her love of comfort food, makes her the perfect fit for Benguela Cove’s Pop-up restaurant.

Annie’s career has been intertwined with that of our other Benguela Dining chefs, namely executive chef Jean Delport at Benguela on Main and executive chef Kelly-Anne Pietersen at Benguela Brasserie & Restaurant.

Annie met and worked with Kelly-Anne at All Things Culinary and thereafter at Sophia’s Restaurant at Morgenster Wine and Olive Estate. This continued friendship and professional working relationship has lead to Annie incorporating aspects of Kelly-Anne’s menu into account when creating her own dishes.

Expect fresh local food, combining interesting flavours to create exciting contemporary and new dishes with a French flair that excite the senses.
