Relaxed social dining in the comfortable surrounds of a modern kitchen-focused restaurant

Origins have crafted a menu that offers relaxed social dining in the comfortable surrounds of a modern kitchen-focused restaurant. Whether it is tapas, natural wines and craft beer or a full sit-down dining experience you're after, you'll find it at Origins.

At Origins Small Plates pays tribute to the social act of sharing. Shoots, Stems & Leaves takes inspiration from the earth; local, seasonal produce delivered as complex, delicious salads. Our mains and sides are Hunted and Gathered; each ingredient reflecting our surroundings. Desserts with local flavour bring The Sweetness, and artisanal Cheeses of the Region round out the menu.

Our ‘Chef's Blackboard' will introduce at least 3 new daily dishes to reflect the season, and allow us to champion the exciting fresh produce we find.

Tronette knows the Liz McGrath Collection inside out, having worked at all three properties since 2008. She started her Collection career at The Marine, so returning as Head Chef in 2017 felt like coming full circle. Much more than a job, she sees The Collection as her family, and says that “once you are part of it, you never want to leave.”

Tronette makes sure that diners have a fun, relaxed dining experience at the vibrant Origins at The Marine restaurant. Her soulful menu highlights everyday favourites with a modern twist, freshly prepared in the open kitchen.

Whether you visit for lunch or dinner, Tronette will spoil you with local flavours and fresh ingredients, showcasing the impressive bounty of the Overberg.
