What 9 people say about Embarc Restaurant
Phenomenal food and excellent waitstaff who know what they're talking about. The co-owners and their team make you feel welcome and at home. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
Had the fabulous 7 course tasting menu at Embarc. Each dish was exquisite. Unfortunately, a very abrupt and unfriendly waiter put a bit of a damper on an otherwise fantastic experience.
The restaurant is beautifully decorated s with a lovely atmosphere. The food looked gorgeous and was so delicious. The staff were so friendly and attentive. Really worth visiting.
Definitely worth a visit!
The technical execution of all the dishes was incredible. Very skilled balance of flavours and textures. Was really impressed at the value for money and great plates of food.
About Embarc Restaurant
Parkhurst's 4th Avenue gets an elegant fine dining restaurant. This little corner restaurant on Parkhurst's renowned 4th Avenue is where chefs Darren O'Donovan and Lisa de Beer bring their elegant and modern take on fine dining to life.
Their combined resumes would make any foodie blush: Cube Tasting Kitchen, LBV, Aurum and Est Est Alea to name a few. The cherry on top was bringing on Mitchel Du Plessis, their chef de cuisine, who’d been part of their team at Est Est Alea – this trio of culinary stars means the menu is not only dynamite but also consistent, so no matter the day, you’re guaranteed to have the best of the best in the kitchen!
The menu is an ode to their culinary journeys, a highlight reel combining the best of their experiences with newfound inspiration. Each dish is perfectly balanced and exquisitely plated, with a little something for every palate. In Lisa’s words: “It’s contemporary dining – high-end but unpretentious.” The menu is broken into snacks, starters, mains and desserts, but you can have every main as a starter portion (at half the price) meaning you can create your own five- or seven-course tasting menu and it won’t break the bank.
But the pièce de résistance – the dish that all you passionate foodies are going be banging down the door for – is the onion caramel tart with blue cheese ice cream, candied pecan and gingerbread. It’s a crazy, savoury-sweet sensation that will blow your mind.
