Fyndraai Restaurant - Solms-Delta
Offering a modern take on traditional Cape cuisine
Fyndraai Restaurant has a very unique and local twist on popular Franschhoek restaurants. Situated on the Solms-Delta Wine Estate, it offers a modern take on traditional Cape cuisine whilst showcasing the history of the area. The cuisine, like its adventurous wines and atmospheric farmstead, lives up to the Solms-Delta claim of being proudly Hiervandaan (‘from this place’).
Dishes explore the diverse culinary heritage of the Cape, uniting European, Asian and African flavours in a fusion of tradition and creativity. Syrups and sauces enliven veldkos; elements of Afrikaner boerekos, with its strong ‘Cape Malay’ (slave) influences, are blended with ingredients favoured by the Khoi nomads who lived in the Franschhoek Valley thousands of years ago. All appetisingly plated for maximum eye and taste appeal.
The restaurant is part of a larger conservation initiative on the estate called the Dik Delta Fynbos Culinary Gardens, part of a greater 15ha fynbos and renosterveld park currently under development. A nursery is in the process of being established to propagate the most edible indigenous flora.
