Reuben’s at One&Only Cape Town
Building on the award-winning success of his restaurant in Franschhoek, Reuben Riffel’s “Reuben’s at One&Only” in Cape Town is a spectacular entrance onto the urban stage.
Set at the exclusive and luxurious One&Only hotel, Reuben’s communicates finesse and elegance while still remaining relaxed and comfortable. It’s a fine line to walk, but they’ve accomplished it beautifully. The brasserie ambience is highlighted by dark woods, modern lines and beautiful lighting. Stepping in, it’s quite obvious this restaurant resides in a five-star hotel. The attention to detail is impressive.
Keeping with the brasserie theme, the menu is simple and straightforward. But don’t for a second think that simple translates into limited. From the grill and the ocean to large spreads made for sharing, Reuben’s menu is a delicious mix of bistro fare with something to please everyone. All of their products are sourced from sustainable suppliers who share their values and ethics. Do you want to know where your beef is coming from? It’s Chalmar sourced from Ryan Boon, and it’s right there on the menu for you to read.
As you would expect from any restaurant of this calibre, Reuben’s has an extensive wine offering. The full list is a staggering 28 pages! Beer includes local favourites as well as our delicious and refreshing #DPBC Lager. Top shelf spirits are also available from a fully stocked bar.
