“Fine dining winter courses are ample, yet not overwhelming; delicate but also earthy.”
Renowned as one of Cape Town’s hidden culinary gems, Tintswalo Atlantic has introduced an exciting new winter menu that boasts variety and sustainability, featuring intense flavours and vibrant colours to warm winter plates.
