Had a wonderful evening at Henry Whites last night. The service was excellent and the food delicious. I had duo of venison which was wonderful and the springbok was exquisite. For desert I had the cheese board which was ok but my husband ordered the chocolate cake which was delicious and the presentation was incredible. I must say the chef came out to talk to us before dinner and did something I have never experienced in a restaurant anywhere. Both my husband and I and another couple in the lounge were asking about the springbok as this is not something we were familiar with in either the USA or Canada. The chef amazed us and brought all of us a taste of the springbok cooked medium and a piece cooked med/rare so we could taste it as well as understand why it’s better medium rare. The young chef is truly passionate about his creations but more importantly, caring of his customers. We will definitely come back again and again.

Great fine dining experience at Fancourt at very fair prices (less expensive than the very mediocre La Cantina restaurant next door). Great wine selection and some nice touches, e.g., they serve the aperitif in a lounge-style seating area and the chef comes out to explain the menu

This is an elkegant setting and very fine food. You will enjoy it for sure; if you go too often, the menu is a little small, but enough for 2-3 visits. Wine list is great and not too expenisve for quality wines. Service often very good, sometimes you get a learning waiting person and then it can be a little frustrating, slow, clumsy. However, 90% of my frequent visits are very good. Enjoy!
