Every local in Cape Town knows Kloof Street House. And for good reason too, this restaurant, on Kloof Street funnily enough, is an eclectic collection of artefacts, influences, styles and food. It’s also the perfect place for a variety of different occasions, whether it’s just meeting up with friends (their bar is also a great atmosphere), celebrating a birthday, just pure food love, 2 of our friends even got engaged here. It’s versatile in every sense of the word.
Restaurant Review & Interview with Co-Owner Nigel Pace
A brand new (version 2.0 due to a fire) French brasserie and Members Club has opened in Cape Town. Located in Gardens in the historic Leinster Hall, The Stack inspires with décor, style, service and food! We've asked one of the owners Nigel a few questions about their testing journey, from building to despair to rebirth and now the realisation of a dream.
"Everybody always warned me that running your own business was about taking risks. Well, we certainly feel that we have now faced and overcome the most extreme adversity and that is certainly a good feeling. Every minor glitch will probably pale in comparison from here on.”
Nigel Pace, one of the brains behind the Stack, has had quite the journey to bring his dream to fruition.

[spasie] a ‘small space’, with not so small chefs and a long table presents a new underground twist on a Chef's Table, easily found on Church Street in Cape Town. A unique chef led experience with great food and great people.
Greg Zeleny, the man behind secretEATS is also the innovator of [spasie] and is partnered by Nicolas Charalambous, the former right hand of celebrity chef Peter Tempelhoff of The Greenhouse at The Cellars-Hohenort. Having launched the [spasie] late last year, they have already hosted a number of well-known chefs including the likes of: Craig Cormack, Sue-Anne Allen from Masterchef, Dylan Laity of Roundhouse, as well as the team from Ellerman House.
