Henri’s Restaurant & Wine Bar, Somerset West

Our Winter/Spring lunch takes place at the highly-recommended Henri’s Restaurant and & Wine Bar in Somerset West. Karin and Pierre Vosloo have been at Henri’s for just over 2 years, and have built up an excellent reputation for delicious, ethically sourced food.


They’ve put together the following venison menu for us. Although this is a venison lunch, Pierre would be happy to offer a vegetarian menu for anyone needing one. Please let us know if you would like this.


Marinated grilled quail set on sautéed kale topped with a panko crumbed egg and surrounded by a tomato hollandaise
Springbok carpaccio with pickled mushrooms sliced red onion, truffle mayo and homemade cheese
Creamy Biltong Soup

Main course
Biltong crusted kudu loin on an onion puree with a sweet potato fondant and sherry and blue berry jus Or Springbok shank braised with bacon and dried fruit with a samp risotto cake Or Venison Pie served with mustard flavoured mash and game jus

Rooibos crème Brulee served with Koeksister
Traditional Malva pudding with star aniseed custard and toffee sauce

The cost of the lunch will be R295 pp. for members, and R305 pp. for guests.


You could order a meal for your children from the reasonably priced menu, and this would be for your own account.

Wine and other drinks will be for your own account. If you’d like to bring your own wine, the corkage is R40 per bottle.
