Dinner at Marc's Table

We found a new (to us) local restaurant
We don't often find a place that is completely new to us and which has been open for a while. Marc's restaurant is in a hotel that quite frankly when it was painted a lurid pink and given the name of Sugar, we concluded (wrongly!) that is might be slightly disreputable. It is now painted white, still called Sugar (why?) is perfectly respectable and on the corner of Boundary Road and Main Road in Green Point. The menu is has interesting choices, the prices are reasonable for fine dining and the food was good. Both the hotel and restaurant are owned by chef Marc van Rooyen
The restaurant entrance is in Boundary Road. Here you can see the terrace
Lynne's starter of asparagus topped with micro herbs, a poached egg and hollandaise sauce, cost R65, was very good
John's starter of home cured beef Carpaccio with micro greens, parmesan and Salsa Verde. R65
Another starter, Chicken liver parfait served with croutons was rich and creamy
A main course, the line fish of the day which was Yellowtail, topped with prawns and nested on ratatouille R150
John's fillet of beef, with a roasted marrow bone, with confit potatoes and a rich red wine and brandy sauce. R190
Lynne had another starter for her main course, as we had been out for lunch that day. A fresh Salmon tartare with avocado and mayonnaise R65
The comfortable and chic interior of the restaurant

The bill, with The Entertainer discount our friends provided. It was a very good meal. We will be back
