The Makron Restaurant Stellenbosch located in the Majeka House hotel is more than just a place to eat, it is a culinary experience. At the Makron restaurant, the staff and chefs take time and care when producing amazing dishes for the enjoyment of their clients. With funky chairs and tables dressed with unusual ornaments, it’s definitely one hotel restaurant that you will remember.
The menu offers a choice of dishes encouraging you to choose from 4 up to 7 different tasting plates. These are dishes to sample which are small but much more than just a mouthful. You can choose one bottle of wine to accompany your meal or sign up for the pairing wines with each dish.
The experience starts with a gift from the chef of the evening, ours is served on a wooden box, in the style and shape of a rose. It comprises salt crust beetroot and celeriac on the steam of a rose.
We opted for 4 dishes and took 1 each of the 8 on offer on the menu that evening. Every one of them was presented to the highest standard with the most amazing flavours. We finished with a desert of honeycomb, pannacotta and lemon. It was like an explosion going off in your mouth with all the flavours and a little touch of popping candy!
At a total cost of 1470 Rand including wine and cocktails for the equivalent to a Michelin restaurant, we felt it was excellent value.
The dress code is smart casual/informal like most restaurants in South Africa. Reservations start from 7pm and bookings are essential as it is popular with non-resident guests.
