Dornier pop-up restaurant at Merchant's Café in Long St

We were greeted on the pavement outside Merchant’s Café at 33 Long Street for the Dornier Pop-up restaurant.
Watch this space, it will happen again this coming winter

Two tapas dishes were on offer for R50 a plate – Lynne had the aubergine rolls filled with goats cheese and topped with pesto which were extremely good
John had three plump fresh oysters, he preferred them au naturel, but you can have different sauces on them.
We drank Dornier’s very crisp and delightfully fresh Donatus White blend. You could also have the Tempranillo

We were early, this was the beginning of a busy evening with lots of people dropping in to see what a Pop-up restaurant is all about
