#Wine Down Wednesday @ The H❤️rt 


This vibey seaside eatery welcomes guests with warm and loving hospitality in their relaxed and cosy atmosphere. The Hart’s food will take you on a taste-adventure whilst you sit back and drink in the picturesque seaside views.

The menu has been specially well designed, catering for all. Even the children’s menu will leave the little fussiest eaters happy. For your furry four-legged family members water bowls are provided so bring them along.

Breakfast is served between 8AM and 12PM. Try the new Smoked Mackarel, it’s believed to be something really special.

From 12:30 onwards there’s plenty of variety, ranging from delicious Sandwiches to warm Wraps and lovely Platters to share.  If it’s something light you are after then you’ll be bowled over by the fresh and vibrant Salad options. Burgers are a MUST HAVE at least once a week! With so many different options and varieties you’ll never get bored! 

“You can do it” – Coffee

Life is too short for bad coffee! The Hart prides themselves in making some of the best coffees. I believe good ideas start with great coffee. Plan your next business meeting over breakfast and let The Hart’s coffee work for you.

“You are the Gin to my Tonic”

Apart from the VERY good coffee, The Hart also has an extensive wine list and a list of signature cocktails on offer. When asked to point a special one out for me, I was told without a moments hesitation that it has to be the Swartland Gronie. With Summer starting to softly knock on our door make your way to The Hart’s deck to enjoy their tasty and exotic cocktails whilst watching the beautiful sunset only Melkbosstrand has to offer.

The moment had arrived for me to introduce Chef Simone. There is no sincerer love than the love of food that she shares. It is without a doubt that her secret ingredient is always love.

From a young age she used to watch all the TV talk shows about cooking and knew then she wanted to become a chef. Today still she focuses to stay up to date on all new cooking trends and finds her inspiration in everything that’s fresh and vibrant.

The kitchen is her playground and it is here where she finds her freedom and peace. 

We were spoiled by the two beautiful dishes prepared for us. The meal was paired with wines from JH Meyer Signature Wines. The Force Celeste Cinsault was the perfect marriage for the Lamb Shoulder, absolutely delicious! The Force Majeure Chenin Blanc with its fresh and vibey tones enhanced all the flavors of the Paella Squid, again a match made in heaven.

Slow Roast Lamb Shoulder

With Tahini yoghurt, fresh salsa, hand-made yoghurt flatbread and grilled aubergines. This meal explodes with flavor! 

Paella Stuffed Squid

With chorizo, tomatoes and lemon aioli. Served with a side of hand-cut chips. There’s so much happening and each bite has you in awe and wonder. Loved the freshness combined with the spicyness of the chorizo.

Of course size matters, no one wants a small glass of wine

Our amazing lunch were rounded off with Chef Simone’s personal favorite dessert, the Baked Vanilla Pod Cheesecake. I truly am speechless, words escape me when I try to explain this gem of a dessert. Wow, true happiness in each bite!
