Because of its age, Babylonstoren looks like a typically Cape Dutch farm. The earliest settler structure dates from 1690, and the manor house is from 1777. The gables and thatched roofs recall the 17th century, but the food at Babel restaurant reflects a very modern sensibility about cooking. The ingredients are fresh from the garden,thoughtfully combined, and prepared without doing too much to them.
Fruits often keep their skins. If the weather permits, meals are served in the courtyard. Otherwise, the restaurant has a glassed-in room that’s the next best thing to dining outdoors. During the day, the Greenhouse serves tea amid exotic plants like vanilla and dragonfruit.
Babel is open on Wednesday to Sunday
