THE CHEFS' TABLE

Since opening in 2016, The Chefs' Table has earned its place as one of the more sophisticated dining experiences in Durban, while remaining contemporary and approachable. Beautifully designed, with luxurious detail The Chefs' Table offers gracious hospitality, located in the heart of the Umhlanga village.

Award winning executive Chef Kayla-Ann Osborn presents a modern, seasonal menu inspired by the best fresh, seasonal ingredients that Kwa-Zulu Natal has to offer. The open plan kitchen is at the heart of the restaurant, allowing diners to watch the chefs at work and feel the connection to the food and the beautifully plated dishes being prepared.

A world class wine cellar, stocked with unique, vintage wines from South Africa, as well as a selection of International wines, specifically French and New Zealand wines, rank among the noteworthy highlights of the restaurants wine programme, headed by manager of the programme, George Dzubinsky.

 

INSPIRED EATING EXPERIENCES

Each dish is carefully sculptured around exceptional flavours and plated as a work of art on hand crafted ceramic dishes, further reinforcing the artisanal nature of the dining experience. The full wine cellar boasts an impressive array of fine South African wines as well as vintage bottles that can be viewed on request.

The interior of the restaurant reflects the philosophy of the food: natural materials, raw, luxurious yet simple... comfortable and familiar, yet exhilarating and adventurous.

 

KAYLA-ANN OSBORN

Executive Chef, Kayla-Ann Osborn, was awarded the Eat Out Rising Star of the Year in 2017. Her passion for her craft is obvious and she curates her menu with bold flavours and pairings.
