A Refined Dining Experience

After a two-year sabbatical, top restaurateur Jonathan Engelbrecht is back in town, bringing with him his ever-popular Benguela Restaurant. The combination of a passion for food and wine, extreme attention to detail, vast product knowledge and impeccable personalised service is what Jonathan refers to as a ‘Refined Dining Experience’. Now he and his partner, Architect Handre’ du Toit, promise to enchant with a feast not only for the stomach but for the eye too.

Jonathan and Handre’ cordially invite you into their home to enjoy a gastronomic taste experience of grandiose proportions that will have you wanting so much more. Make new friends at the lavish 16-seater Chef's Table as you indulge in a magnificent five-course set menu paired with the finest wines followed by handmade truffles, espresso and Cognac (see documents for an updated menu). With breathtaking views of Walker Bay and its surrounding mountains, the feast at Benguela will be one you will always remember! Booking for this exclusive event is essential.

Business Information


Benguela first opened it’s doors in 2009 after Jonathan was told a restaurant wouldn't work in the area. A combination of this challenge and of being a total perfectionist resulted in what has surely been one of the most glamorous and highly reviewed restaurants in the Overberg.
