As if Cape Town isn’t already bursting at the seams with its vast selection of fine restaurants, esteemed South African culinary expert, Chef de Patron Peter Tempelhoff is launching an exciting new rooftop restaurant in Cape Town CBD this November! FYN by Peter Tempelhoff will no doubt make waves in the local dining scene this summer and beyond. Here’s what to expect from this trendy new spot in the Mother City.

Named after what Tempelhoff refers to as the “better half of the word ‘fynbos'”, the fine dining restaurant will be located on the top floor of Speakers’ Corner on Parliament Street. Offering breathtaking views of both Lion’s Head and Table Mountain, and unmissable lower-Manhattan interior décor, FYN will be THE place to be for diners searching for a memorable dining experience.

FYN restaurantWhat’s more, Tempelhoff has rounded up quite the team for this exciting new project. Executive Chef Ashley Moss (who worked as Tempelhoff’s head chef at Greenhouse over the past four years) will head up the kitchen at FYN. While neither the menu nor wine list has been revealed just yet, we do know that the cuisine will be strongly influenced by South African food culture as well as Tempelhoff’s travels across the globe.

FYN is set to open in Cape Town in November, just in time for the busy summer season. To secure preferential booking at FYN ahead of the November launch, visit the FYN website.
