Food and Wine
Our Food Philosophy
Dining is a culinary journey at Qambathi, a journey that reflects and celebrates local South African flavours. One that plays on all the senses with an uncompromising commitment to using only the freshest local ingredients and producing as much as possible on site, whether it be freshly made compotes with which to flavour your breakfast yoghurt; bread to tempt you whilst having a picnic by the stream; gorgeous side dishes to accompany your mains at dinner and a whole host of other delectable, freshly made goodies.
Meet our head chef, Nomonde. At Qambathi we want the food to provide a treat for your tastebuds, nourishment for your body and a feast for the eyes. As with everything we do we want to remain conscious of our environmental footprint. This is why we pride ourselves in sourcing local organically grown produce and support garden to table approach.We are also fully catered for any vegetarian and vegan guests.
Our wine list has been carefully selected to showcase the best of South African wine. By also supporting the smaller vineyards, we ensure that you will be exposed to special selections not readily available in the main stream market. We proudly offer local KZN Abingdon Wine. Apart from a wonderful wine selection we also offer single malts, beers, variety of liquor as well as soft drinks. Watch this space for some exciting food and wine parings with Abingdon Wine.
