10 course dinner- Cube Tasting Kitchen

We had the most divine Valentine’s Dinner. I’d been to Cube before but I’ve been dying to return. It’s a tiny restaurant in Parktown North (maximum capacity around 24 people) and it doesn’t even have a sign outside. The decor is basic and simple, but the food is anything but.
Everything is plated beautifully (think edible flowers, and brilliant usage of colours and textures) and the taste sensation is just out of this world. The chef, Dario, puts together the strangest combination of things but they all just taste so good. It’s pricey- the price ranges from R450-R600 pp, but I really think it is worth it. It’s not the kind of place you’ll go to every weekend- it’s a very special occasion kind of place. I give you my word that anyone you take there will be blown away!

The entire experience lasted about 3.5 hours- I have to admit that on a weekday it is quite tiring so maybe plan to go on a weekend. They aren’t licensed so you take your own booze- no corkage charge!
