Black Oystercatcher Restaurant, Elim, Cape Agulhas region

Black Oyster Catcher Restaurant, Elim

The Black Oystercatcher Restaurant is on the beautiful wine farm by the same name, near Elim. The Restaurant offers a fresh, intimate food experience. They serve fresh seasonal produce that grows in their garden. As a result, expect an organic dining experience, set in a relaxed country atmosphere. Here fresh food, complementing the vineyard’s boutique wines, is prepared to order and enjoyed at leisure.

The seasons also determine the mood at this Elim restaurant: the refreshing sea breeze will cool you down in summer, or enjoy the cozy log fires in the winter months.

The restaurant is close to the quaint missionary town of Elim and the small town of Bredasdorp at South Africa’s southern-most tip. The setting is ideal, looking out over the wetlands that form part of conserved Nuwejaars Wetland Protected Environment, and across to the rare fynbos on the Soetmuisberg mountains. The view is complete with our infinity pool situated next to the dining area.

The Black Oystercatcher Restaurant offers visitors some insight into the rich history of the Agulhas Plain. The building is more than a hundred years old, and has through the century served as a dairy parlour, stables for horses and even housing ostriches. It was converted to the restaurant in 2008.

Aside from the dining facilities, wine tastings are also held. This Overberg restaurant has featured on programmes such as Pasella, and has been frequented by South Africa’s best-known faces, from sport stars to entertainers.
