A Special Day for Fathers at Lakeside Lodge & Spa

Every year we get the opportunity to honour our fathers and this year is no exception at Lakeside Lodge & Spa, a short drive out from Sedgefield on the Garden Route. A hearty winter set menu is planned at the lodge’s on-site restaurant, Benguela Brasserie & Restaurant, on Sunday, 19 June 2016. 

The restaurant encompasses panoramic views of the Swartvlei Lagoon, which are simply breath-taking, even in winter. Guests have the option of a two or three course lunch and indulgent dishes such as ham hock and split pea soup and braised beef short ribs with parmesan mash, pumpkin and gremolata, are found on the menu. End it off with a warm Malva pudding, drizzled with rooibos anglaise, ginger soil and served with buttermilk ice-cream.

Benguela Cove wine from the Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate in Walker Bay, Hermanus is also available to pair and complement your meal. Sit inside close to the roaring log fire and feast on the two course meal for R350.00 per person or the three courses for R395.00 per person. Bookings are essential.
