"Not quite exceptional"
8.7 Cuisine 6 | Service 10 | Atmosphere 10

Excellent service, beautiful decor. Food was good but not exceptional. We had the Restaurant Week menu of 6 courses at R650pp and one of the courses was a Palate Cleanser ?!?!?! Very small plates. We saw diners with their normal Ala carte menu and I think this is where their strength lies.

Cuisine: Fine Dining, Seafood

The culinary panorama in the Mother City has been elevated with the opening of Urchin Restaurant located at The Hyatt Regency, Cape Town on Buitengracht Street.

There is a complexity to achieving true simplicity in a restaurant setting. It is an art. At Urchin Restaurant it is a beautifully and precisely choreographed ballet in which sustainable fresh fish and seafood are the prima and danseur. The hallmarks of the Urchin elemental ocean dining experience are underpinned by excellent, unobtrusive service, locally sourced and produced ingredients and world class wine from carefully curated wine cellar.

Like its namesake, Urchin’s menu showcases seafood in many delectable dishes which are as impressive on the palate as they are on the eyes. Chef Gerard van Staden’s menu ignites all five senses with a combination of flavours and textures all engineered to surprise and delight in every way. The complete Urchin journey means portions have been proportionately curated allowing for a multiple course adventure where the fruits of the ocean are the stars.
