It’s that time of the year when Capetonians start noticing the days getting shorter and the sun dipping behind the horizon sooner than in the last few summer months. And while you might be gearing up to hibernate and spending your evenings binge-watching Netflix dramas, we want to encourage you to make most of the winter specials in Cape Town. Join us and tuck into one or more of our hearty Damhuis winter dishes.

Yes, it does mean that you will have to leave your comfy abode, but it will undoubtedly be worth it. Damhuis is a restaurant with a fireplace, which means you can sit in our Voorhuijs section and enjoy a cosy and warm atmosphere that will kick your winter blues to the curb. Do note: our Fisherman’s Tent area boasts gas heaters, so there’s that option too.

And then, of course, there is the delicious food. We specialise in fresh seafood and traditional South African cuisine that is served in one of the oldest buildings in the Western Cape.  Let’s take a closer look at our winter specials…

Tuesday: Indulgent Eisbein & FREE Cider or Glass of Wine – R120

Kick off the week with Damhuis Eisbein cooked in our chef’s secret recipe, pickled, slow-cooked and roasted to crisp perfection. It’s complemented with homemade sauerkraut, vegetables and mash and a FREE Hunters Dry OR glass of Durbanville Hills red or white wine.

Wednesday: Irresistible Damhuis Oxtail & FREE Glass of Wine – R120

Struggling to cope with hump day? Tuck into our oxtail, slow-cooked the Damhuis way, and a side serving of Basmati rice or mash and vegetables. Enjoy this hearty meal with a FREE glass of Leopard’s Leap merlot wine.

Thursday: Delicious Damhuis Beef or Wagyu Burger & FREE 340ml Stellenbrau Lager – R90 | R130

This weekend is on the horizon, so celebrate with a classic homemade beef patty cooked to perfection and topped with onion marmalade, mature cheddar and an egg, OR if you want to spoil yourself after a long week, upgrade your beef patty to the finest marbled free-range Karoo Wagyu. What’s more, you can wash it all down with a FREE 340ml Stellenbrau Lager.

Book a spot for the whole family to enjoy our winter specials.

And there you have it: winter specials in Cape Town that promise a culinary experience that will send those chills packing! Don’t forget to bring your little ones along. Damhuis is a family-friendly restaurant in Melkbosstrand, just 25 minutes outside the city.
