A “Bold Classics & Traditional Tableside Service” Dining at Lord Nelson Restaurant
Experience bold classics and traditional tableside service at Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel, Cape Town’s historic Lord Nelson Restaurant.
Experience a piece of culinary history and gourmand tradition at the 120-year old Lord Nelson Restaurant of Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel, Cape Town. Introducing bold classic dishes and the mid-17th century French art of ‘guéridon’ or tableside service, the dining experience at the historic restaurant will be an exquisite one.
Walk into the restaurant and be greeted by a soothing soundtrack, courtesy of resident pianist, Henry Dike, before being seated at crisp white linen tables cocooned by elegant wood panelling. Adding a leafy allure to the décor are three stunning botanical tapestries of indigenous flowers created by artists of the Keiskamma Trust, from the rural village of Hamburg in the Eastern Cape.
Taste the new menu prepared by the Executive Chef, Rudi Liebenberg, that is bold and brimming with classic choices. Indulge with Beef Wellington made from pasture-reared beef fillet from Spier’s Farmer Angus, covered with a braised short rib, prosciutto and mushroom duxelle, encased in light puff pastry and other popular dishes such as Caesar salad, steak tartare, prawn cocktail and crème brulée.
Enjoy an Entrée of herb-crusted roast rack of Karoo lamb with cauliflower Mornay and main of crown roasted chicken served with chicken thigh tortellini and a trolley laden with unusual cheeses for dessert; all feature on the specials tableside menu.
