Lunch at UPPER BLOEM restaurant

Saturday, 29 September 2018 at 12h30
65 Main Road, Green Point, Cape Town

The menu – tapas-style, seasonal dishes, inspired by head chef André Hill’s childhood memories (growing up on Upper Bloem Street in the Bo Kaap) – is a journey of “flavours, spices, textures, colours, inspiration and nostalgia” says co-owner and chef Henry Vigar, who helped André achieve his vision.


The cost of the three-course meal is R328 per person for members and R358 per person for guests. Coffee and the gratuity is included in this costing. Wine and bottled water is for your own account. Please advise Lorna on if you are coming, and an EFT to our account will confirm your booking.

André and Henry have let us know that they do their best to accommodate food allergies, but the menu is small, seasonal and fresh. They regret that soya, coriander, garlic and salt are essential ingredients for most of their recipes. Please let Lorna know about any other allergies when making your booking.

Also, please let Lorna know if you’d like the vegetarian option for your main course.
