Hotel Restaurants

Nobu at the One&Only Cape Town

Dining at the five star One&Only Cape Town Resort, South Africa, is a pure delight with two superb restaurants. Nobu, by legendary Michelin-starred chef Nobu Matsuhisa and Reuben’s, by local celebrity chef Reuben Riffel and connected by Vista Bar, which boast captivating views of Table Mountain. Reuben’s is complemented by an impressive tri-level wine loft with a mezzanine tasting room.

Nobu Restaurant at the One&Only Cape Town

World-class master chef Nobuyuki ‘Nobu’ Matsuhisa expands his eponymous empire with the debut of his first restaurant in Africa – his third for Kerzner International.

No stranger to worldly culinary influences, Nobu gives classical Japanese cuisine a contemporary twist. Diners can indulge in fresh South African seafood and indigenous spices in mesmerising dishes such as Sake Roast Whitefish with Jalapeno or the Chocolate Bento Box; a dark chocolate fondant with green tea ice cream and a sesame seed tuile.

Nobu Lounge on the upper level features a selection of Sakes including plum wines, Japanese beer and a selection of Sake and Shochu based cocktails. Meanwhile, The Ceviche Bar, which is often attended by Nobu's Head Chef, dispenses a variety of inventive small-plate Japanese tapas dishes.

Award for the Nobu Restaurant at the One&Only Cape Town

The One&Only Cape Town Resort is proud to announce that its well known Nobu Restaurant was recognised for its unique contribution to the country’s culinary landscape at a glittering awards ceremony and gala dinner at the Rotunda at the Bay Hotel, Camps Bay. Awarded a coveted Top 10 Best Restaurant placement in the 2011 Eat Out DStv Food Network Restaurant Awards, chef Hideki Maeda and his brigade of top notch chefs are understandably thrilled at the recognition that has been awarded this leading city restaurant situated at five-star resort One&Only Cape Town.

The award came at the end of a fantastic year 2011 for the Cape Town representative of a renowned global culinary brand. Recently included in the prestigious American Express Platinum fine dining awards and programme for 2012, when Nobu first opened their doors in 2009, they entered a competitive market with their unique dining concept.

The restaurant has proven itself with a unique brand of traditional Japanese Kaiseki dining that is married with fusion tradition – the signature cuisine style developed by brand founder Chef Nobu Matsuhisa.

The dining experience at Nobu Cape Town is like no other in the city, including their famed seven-course Omakase menu where diners journey through a variety of traditional Japanese culinary offerings teamed with fusion twists as well as a host of signature dishes that have regulars coming back time and time again. Such is the meticulous nature of preparation and presentation of the food at Nobu, that chef Hideki-san personally prepared each and every one of the 360-plus starters served at this year’s Eat Out Awards. His innovative Baby spinach salad with dried miso and crayfish offering was a precursor to an evening meal prepared by fellow award winners Luke Dale-Roberts, Michael Broughton and George Jardine.

With Hollywood stars and celebrity A-listers regularly seen dining at Nobu restaurants around the globe, there’s no doubt that Nobu Cape Town at One&Only Cape Town is one of the most glamorous places to be this summer - now thanks to its outstanding achievements in the dining sphere, it’s where any foodie worth their salt will be headed for an unforgettable dining experience.

Reuben has since won the coveted Eat Out 'Restaurant of the Year' and 'Chef of the Year' awards.  Reubens's appeals to the culinary side of the soul and will be enjoyed by young and old.

Afternoon Tea at the One&Only Cape Town

Guests may enjoy one of life’s luxuries in style at the five star One&Only Cape Town Resort where Afternoon Tea is a lavish affair. The perfect excuse to take time out, the famous One&Only Cape Town Afternoon Tea is a decadent daily event where piles of impossibly delicate pastries, savoury bites and sweet indulgences set the tone. Executive Pastry Chef and team of passionate sugar smiths and bakers start from early each morning to prepare the lavish buffet style Afternoon Tea.

Each afternoon sees an oversized table in the Vista Lounge dressed with a colourful array of macaroons in an astonishing assortment of flavours, just-baked cakes and tartlets, savoury finger sandwiches and always an assortment of chocolate delights.

Though the Afternoon Tea reflects the hotel’s position as part of a globally renowned and sophisticated brand with universally recognised offerings like their famous New York style baked cheesecake, there is no doubt that this is a South African-infused Afternoon tea experience. Local delicacies such as the syrupy koeksister can be enjoyed while sipping on the hotel’s specially blended Arabica coffee or any of the loose-leaf teas on offer.

This winter, Afternoon Tea guests can further indulge their sweet tooth with a decadent Lindt fondue and most will certainly agree that just one of the hotel's signature lemon Macaroons is simply just not enough. A wonderful way to while away an afternoon, One&Only Cape Town’s Afternoon Tea is certainly a decadent affair to remember.

Catering for up to 100 guests in the Vista Lounge, Afternoon Tea at One&Only Cape Town is served from 2.30pm –5.30pm daily (subject to change).

Spa Journeys at the One&Only Cape Town

Philosophy

Unwind, Balance and Uplift. These are the cornerstones of the One&Only Spa, three distinct pillars around which all spa therapies and treatments are created. Each features its own specialised set of holistic programs designed to guide guests in choosing the experiences best suited to their particular needs…from pure relaxation to unique wellness journeys.

Unwind

In this fast-paced world, it is often difficult to slow down and let our mind, body and soul unwind and relax. The Unwind Programme calms the mind and nerves, easing muscle tension to achieve a sense of deep relaxation and peace. Activities include a variety of spa treatments, meditation, nutrition and yoga.

Balance

During times of stress, lifestyles can become unhealthy and our bodies may feel sluggish and in need of detoxification. The Balance Programme is designed to cleanse and purify both mind and body, restoring the body's natural equilibrium. A full menu of spa treatments is complemented by cardiovascular exercise and cleansing nutrition.

Uplift

The daily stresses of life often lower our energy levels, leaving us feeling emotionally drained and creating a sense of exhaustion. The Uplift Programme can be experienced through body massage, energising fitness and nutrition. Focus is given to pressure points and energy centres of the body resulting in a sense of wellbeing and vitality.

We have been to some of the other One&Only Resorts already and wanted to check this one out. AMAZING what you can build right in a city. Spending the afternoons at the swimming pool made us think we are in Mauritius - the weather was right and the palm trees were swaying.

Super city resort - could have not been better. The spa is amazing, the restaurants are both really good and we had a great view from our suite. Exquisite!!!

We used this hotel as our wedding anniversary location, and thanks God we did! It was Heaven on Earth for us.

Best service, very big bedroom by the pool. We had told the concierge about our anniversary and on arrival back from dinner, we were met by a room entirely lit by candles, with rose petals lying from the bed up to and into the bath tub, champagne and fruit/chocolates. AMAZING! I will never forget that.

A great place to spend a very special occassion.

Oh, what a nice time we had at this BEST Resort. The weather was so nice and we thought we were in Mauritius when we used the swimming pool. Although we were right in Cape Town at the Waterfront where there is so much going on.

The food could have not been better, the staff was very nice, the rooms were big and so modern, beautiful! I loved it. It is not a cheap hotel, but if you want to really spoil yourself, then it is the best choice for Cape Town.

Brilliant location, super food, first class facilities, I cannot find anything negative about this super hotel. I did not think that it is possible to have a real Resort in the city, but the One&Only Cape Town made it true!!!

Very well done to the staff, we had a fabulous time there and hope that we can return again in the future.

Howday,

Award for the Nobu Restaurant at the One&Only Cape Town

The One&Only Cape Town Resort is proud to announce that its well known Nobu Restaurant was recognised for its unique contribution to the country’s culinary landscape at a glittering awards ceremony and gala dinner at the Rotunda at the Bay Hotel, Camps Bay. Awarded a coveted Top 10 Best Restaurant placement in the 2011 Eat Out DStv Food Network Restaurant Awards, chef Hideki Maeda and his brigade of top notch chefs are understandably thrilled at the recognition that has been awarded this leading city restaurant situated at five-star resort One&Only Cape Town.

The award came at the end of a fantastic year 2011 for the Cape Town representative of a renowned global culinary brand. Recently included in the prestigious American Express Platinum fine dining awards and programme for 2012, when Nobu first opened their doors in 2009, they entered a competitive market with their unique dining concept.

The restaurant has proven itself with a unique brand of traditional Japanese Kaiseki dining that is married with fusion tradition – the signature cuisine style developed by brand founder Chef Nobu Matsuhisa.

The dining experience at Nobu Cape Town is like no other in the city, including their famed seven-course Omakase menu where diners journey through a variety of traditional Japanese culinary offerings teamed with fusion twists as well as a host of signature dishes that have regulars coming back time and time again. Such is the meticulous nature of preparation and presentation of the food at Nobu, that chef Hideki-san personally prepared each and every one of the 360-plus starters served at this year’s Eat Out Awards. His innovative Baby spinach salad with dried miso and crayfish offering was a precursor to an evening meal prepared by fellow award winners Luke Dale-Roberts, Michael Broughton and George Jardine.

With Hollywood stars and celebrity A-listers regularly seen dining at Nobu restaurants around the globe, there’s no doubt that Nobu Cape Town at One&Only Cape Town is one of the most glamorous places to be this summer - now thanks to its outstanding achievements in the dining sphere, it’s where any foodie worth their salt will be headed for an unforgettable dining experience.
