Beyond, Constantia –

This time next year Peter Tempelhoff’s new restaurant should be packed to its centuries-old rafters.

The restaurant is called beyond. It’s housed in one of the old thatched buildings on the Buitenverwachting wine farm in Constantia, with floor-to-ceiling views of the vineyards.

The décor is pure class. The sage-coloured walls, smooth wooden tabletops and velvety armchairs reminded me of La Petite Colombe. The herringbone feature wall and dried floral displays are dramatic and current.

The food, not surprisingly, is delicious. Tempelhoff is one of the Cape’s most highly-acclaimed and pioneering chefs, the man behind Afro-Asian fusion restaurant, FYN. Ashley Moss, also of FYN, is beyond’s culinary director.

Buitenverwachting wines are good and beyond’s wine list is, apparently, packed with treasure.
