Reuben's Restaurant
Reuben Riffel is a celebrated household name in South Africa and is renowned for his culinary prowess. The in-house Reuben’s Restaurant is perfect for delicious meals, from breakfast to lunches and dinners. High-back armchairs in deep reds, wooden ceiling beams, chandeliers and Persian carpets set the scene for an intimate and delicious dinner. Making the most of the West Coast setting as well as Reuben Riffel’s love of aromatic spicing, starters include a Chilli Salt Squid dish. The signature Pork Belly dish will have diners torn for choice while sublime desserts such as the West Coast African Trio (Chocolate Truffels, Almond Vanilla Ice Cream served with an Espresso and Voorkamer Pot Still brandy) are a perfect sweet ending.

Although Abalone House does not allow children under 12, we do cater to children in the restaurant strictly during lunch service. Unfortunately we do not permit children during dinner service.
