Welcome to Tokara Restaurant, one of South Africa's leading fine dining restaurants. The restaurant, situated 400 meters above sea level on top of the Helshoogte Pass outside Stellenbosch, offers its guests terroir focused contemporary cuisine, award-winning wines and dramatic views over Stellenbosch and False Bay. The building housing the restaurant is a Cape architectural icon utilising glass, steel and stone. The restaurant, established in 2001, was renovated and came under new management in 2010. Multi-awarding winning chef Richard Carstens now leads the kitchen team. The à la carte menu changes every season, while daily specials offer something new and exciting to returning guests. A new feature of the renovated restaurant includes a bar with a clear view of the hustle and bustle in the kitchen or the sun setting through a picture window.
