Quentin at Oakhurst, Hout Bay, celebrates a successful year

We were invited by owner Quentin Spickernell to his celebration of his restaurant’s first birthday. Attended by guest of honour Sol Kerzner, for whom Quentin worked as Private Chef for many years, it was a well attended occasion celebrated with quite a few magnums of Moët & Chandon Champagne and some good snacks. We had not been to this smart Hout Bay restaurant before and it is now on our list of places to visit in the new year. Beautifully and wittily decorated, with pieces collected by Quentin, by Interior Decorator Jay Smith, it showcases our South African culture and food.
