The Planet Restaurant - Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel

With its namesake galaxy-themed carpet, planetary chandelier and pillared walls, The Planet Restaurant at the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel is quite literally heavenly. To go with the eccentric yet luxurious décor is a fitting menu by award-winning Chef Rudi Liebenberg. From Mondays to Saturdays, guests can dine to the sounds of live piano music, adding to the unique and fantastic atmosphere.

The modern fine dining menu includes classic dishes such as fresh West Coast oysters, grilled beef rib-eye steak with a béarnaise sauce, and seared duck breast. Their extensive wine list features a number of top quality local wines, and the vibrant Planet Bar offers a wide selection of tipple.

The Planet Restaurant also offers an exciting culinary experience referred to as the Chef’s Table. Guests can book ahead for a 5-course dinner, either with or without a wine pairing. As each course is presented, the chef who made it gives a brief explanation of how it was prepared before a friendly and knowledgeable sommelier selects the perfect wine to compliment the meal.
