Salsify wins at global restaurant awards

Chef Ryan Cole and his team received the award for “Best Scenic Setting in South Africa” in the Haute Grander Global Restaurant Awards of 2022.

Salsify and its scenic setting have been recognised as one of the best restaurants in the country by the Haute Grander Global Restaurant Awards for 2022.

With sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and the majestic Lion’s Head as a backdrop, Salsify is an award-winning, fine-dining restaurant serving up modern cooking, inspired by nature and driven by the seasons. Within the richly storied walls of national monument, The Roundhouse, an opulent culinary journey is accented by daring décor and whispers of history – a meal at Salsify is unlike any other.

The restaurant recently underwent a stunning refurbishment to embrace the constant exchange of inspiration between the 300-year-old building and its young, dynamic inhabitants. It’s a space that compliments and contrasts the chef’s seasonally driven, locally conscious fine dining, and his team’s expert service and superb wine programme.

The Haute Grandeur Global Restaurant Awards recognise remarkable achievements in delivering consistent, exceptional experiences in the global luxury hospitality industry.

“To win a Haute Grandeur Global Restaurant Award for overall “excellence” a restaurant must excel on all levels. The 2022 Awards season demonstrated how restaurants around the world remained persistent to achieve greater heights despite challenges that exist in the industry”, says Founder and President, Marinique de Wet. “Healthy competition Is essential to achieve even greater heights because it ensures sustainability as a guaranteed golden stamp of excellence. Award-winning establishments are perceived as the benchmark in the industry and Haute Grandeur only award the most remarkable, of already exceptional restaurants.”

“The industry is highly competitive. Only those who constantly exceed attain prestige in an industry that create many jobs. An association with Haute Grandeur Global Restaurant Awards guarantees participating restaurants and bars status and distinction. The organization is proud to contribute annually towards raising the standards of excellence in the worldwide restaurant industry. 

“We’re incredibly honoured to receive this award,” says Ryan. “It’s a tribute to Salsify’s home, but also our evolution over the four years since we opened. As our space continues to evolve, we get to celebrate that we’re staying true to not only the building’s past but also Salsify’s sustainable, seasonal and local ethos.”

The category’s global winner was Glass House at Al Aziziyah Boutique Hotel in Qatar and Khyber at Dukes The Palm.
