Craft Beer Pub Guide: Engruna



Situated in Sea Point, Engruna has been providing a vibrant atmosphere and delicious food since 2013. A sister restaurant to the very popular La Boheme, Engruna delivers its own unique style and flavour to tourists and locals alike.

Offering an indoor and outdoor seating area, this contemporary eatery is comfortable and casual. The décor is unassuming but there is clearly an incredible attention to detail. From olive oil in old gin bottles to beautiful cutlery, nothing has been overlooked.

Opening from lunch until late evening, Engruna specialises in wood-fired pizza and gourmet burgers. If you’re in the mood for something a bit lighter, there are also tapas on offer. For those with a sweet tooth, the milkshakes are not to be missed. Toasted marshmallow with vanilla ice cream? Yes please!

Craft beers include local and international offerings in both bottle and on draft. First Light Golden Ale is available in #DPBC’s signature tulip glasses – perfect for pairing with any of the pizzas or burgers. The wine selection is also fantastic.

As Engruna is quite a popular spot, it’s best to book in advance – especially for dinner. Lucky for us, they provide a really easy online booking system. Just pop over to the website, fill in your details and hit “Book Now.” Super simple!

Our Top DPBC Beer and Food Pairing: Jalapeño Burger with First Light Golden Ale

This burger is hot. It’s real hot. The chilli sauce is made with raw ingredients, so don’t expect a mellow tasting experience. We’d suggest a full 500ml to start, and you can probably count on another just for good measure. The burger is mind-blowing and very filling, so come hungry!
