"Good experience but won't return soon"
7.7 Cuisine 6 | Service 7 | Atmosphere 10

A special experience, although it was a rare occasion that I left hungry after the set menu course. My partner was also served alcohol by mistake, despite us making it clear on the booking and at the start of the meal that she was to avoid it. It was a good once-off, but better value may be available elsewhere.

About Dusk Restaurant

Cuisine: Fine Dining

Internationally awarded chefs Darren Badenhorst and Callan Austin have brought their thought-provoking restaurant concept, Dusk, to life. Having first met over a decade ago, the duo has embarked on a journey to challenge and ultimately push aside the boundaries of the fine dining industry.

Their vision for Dusk is to create a space where only the highest quality produce farmed through ethical techniques and harvested at the height of their season is showcased, with a focus on incorporating each supplier's story and educating guests on important topics relating to the food industry. Through their exploration, they have discovered fascinating indigenous ingredients such as Kalahari truffles, wild pigs, and a variety of medicinal plants.

Dusk's dark and mysterious dining room features only table-hung lights, keeping the focus on the food and wine. In addition to their unique ingredients, the team experiments with an array of lacto-fermented ingredients, garums, shoyus, pickles, vinegars, misos, cured meats, homemade cheeses, and even their own wine and alcoholic concoctions.

Beyond their culinary offerings, Dusk sets a precedent for a working environment that encourages growth in career opportunities and personal development, with a focus on staff well-being and connection to the creative concepts."
