World Top 50 Announcement

This year has seen the Tasting Room place 31 overall (6 places higher than last year’s 37th place). In fact Margot was the only female chef to achieve a place in the 2010 World Top 50.

We’ve once again found ourselves in fine local company with La Colombe, another South African restaurant, appearing at number 12 in the top 50 rankings. They also clinched the title of 2010 Best Restaurant in Africa and the Middle East. Congratulations La Colombe!

This year marks six consecutive years in the S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants rankings and, for us, this is phenomenal and in many ways unbelievable. Every year global food and fine-dining standards improve exponentially and the competition, this year, was incredibly stiff. We consider it a huge honour to have once again been included. It is also fantastic that another South African restaurant has again – along with us – been recognized and it reinforces our belief that South Africa, as a food destination, continues to impress on the global culinary stage.
