Adjacent to Jiko sits a place of exploration, the Cape Town Lounge and Wine Bar. Warm and intimate, this small lounge celebrates the exceptional collection of South African wines that Jiko is famous for.
It’s a wonderful place to begin a tour of South Africa before continuing on to a memorable meal at Jiko. Request to see the dinner menu, decide on an appetizer, then get some advice about pairings for it. Guests may choose to order the wine in the Cape Town Lounge and bring it with them into the restaurant to enjoy with that first course, or have their appetizer in the Lounge before going into dinner.
The savory aromas from Jiko may prove too much for the patrons who had only planned to stop for a drink. Diners will be invited to move to an available table in the restaurant, but if it’s busy, food can be ordered from the menu for service in the Lounge.
For those choosing to eat in the Lounge, we recommend ordering appetizers only. The wonderful food at Jiko deserves attention. While the full menu is available at the bar, the stools there are second only to those in the main restaurant in the race for most uncomfortable, so last-minute diners should consider patience, or a reservation on another night!
