Jordan embodies the aspirations of modern South African dining. The restaurant is simple and open, with wooden chairs and white tablecloths in a room lined with windows overlooking the vines. The menu is also deceptively simple, and could include a pot roast or smoked fish. But every dish is perfectly prepared. That yellowtail came from a wine barrel smoker. The pot roast is springbok and makes game a fine dining experience.
Breads are baked in wood-fired stove, and there’s a separate bakery that’s worth visiting just for the pastries. At the end of each meal, guests are invited to explore the walk-in artisanal cheese room and assemble their own plates. For people who believe in lists, Jordan is regularly ranked among the best in South Africa and in the world. If it’s too good to leave, Jordan has recently opened posh suites so visitors can stay on the farm.
