Our Food Philosophy
Meals at Schoone Oordt are made with love and passion. Our country food is respectful of ingredients, unpretentiously fine dining, honestly delicious and served with true Schoone Oordt style and flair. We are hugely particular about ethically sourcing the freshest best produce from small local suppliers and growers. Our wine is sourced from the Overberg area (mostly Robertson), our meat and eggs from the divine Country Butcher, our fish from Sustainable Trout and the Little Fisherman, our flour from Eureka Mills, our vegetables from Little Oaks and so on. We hand make everything we can, from our breads, cheese biscuits and cakes to our truffles that appear at evening turndown. We also pay particular attention to dietary requirements, from lactose intolerant to vegan and everything in between. Since Chef Wander joined us in 2011 and began serving dinner in The Conservatory, we have grown from strength to strength. We can honestly say that over the years, The Conservatory Restaurant has become one of the finest of Swellendam Restaurants.
