"Exquisite!"
9.3 Cuisine 10 | Service 10 | Atmosphere 8

We booked 5 course tasting menu on Restaurantweek - food amazing, service excellent. Unfortunately wind was very strong for sitting out on the beautiful stoep so we chose inside which was lovely if quiet.

About HŌSEKI

Cuisine: Japanese

HŌSEKI has a profound definition when translated from Japanese, meaning “jewel”, which pays homage to Delaire Graff Estate’s Owner and renowned diamantaire, Laurence Graff OBE. The menu will offer guests contemporary cuisine imbued with the creative flair and vibrancy for which Head Chef Virgil Kahn is renowned. Dishes are crafted to be shared at the table and served in a style honouring Japanese culture and customs.

Take Flight
The blue and copper-toned interior of Indochine Restaurant remains; however, the iconic Swallows in Flight art installation created by André Stead, working in collaboration with Lionel Smit, now brings an even greater meaning to the new space. In Japanese culture, birds have adorned prints, ceramics, cloisonné and ancient temples for centuries – with the swallow representing good luck.

Sustainably Sourced
The menu will change with the seasons, with herbs and vegetables sourced directly from the Estate’s greenhouse and vegetable garden, ensuring an authentic farm-to-table Japanese dining experience in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Other fresh ingredients such as Cape wagyu, soft-shell crab and black cod will be procured from suppliers who share the Estate’s ethos of responsible sourcing and sustainability.

Virgil Kahn
Head Chef Virgil Kahn is behind the evocative, fine-dining food theatre that is HŌSEKI. He comes to Delaire Graff Estate from an esteemed background, having cooked at Gordon Ramsay’s Maze and Nobu at The One&Only Cape Town.

Under the guidance of Head Chef Virgil Kahn and his team, diners visiting HŌSEKI can expect the same expertise, creativity and dedication that has been integral to the success of Indochine, guided by an unwavering pursuit of perfection.
