Joostenberg Bistro

COVID-19 Update | Joostenberg Bistro is currently closed due to the COVID-19 lockdown in South Africa. We hope to open and see you soon again.
Please note that as a food store, Joostenberg Deli and Butchery are still open every day. In addition we are taking orders and doing deliveries. Please take a look at our Online Deli for all the details. In the meantime we hope that you keep well, safe and healthy.

Head chef Garth Bedford draws inspiration from traditional French bistro cuisine and strives to recreate the essence of simple, good food in everything that he and his team prepare. Seasonal menus feature hearty, robust dishes made from scratch, using regional farm produce.

Typical dishes include a charcuterie plate, herb-crusted pork loin with pickled vegetables and cabbage salad, nage of cape linefish with white wine, onion, garlic and peppercorn poached vegetables and delicious chocolate and almond flourless cake or crème caramel for dessert. The atmosphere is relaxed and family friendly with a cosy fireplace in winter and a vine-shaded stoep overlooking the gardens to be enjoyed, in the summer.
