Reuben’s at One&Only Cape Town
South African celebrity chef Reuben Riffel opens a fine dining restaurant at One&Only Cape Town
Friday 1 October 2010 marks the opening of Reuben Riffel’s first urban restaurant at One&Only Cape Town. Riffel is one of South Africa's best loved celebrity chefs and plans to serves bistro fare, made from locally-sourced produce, at the Cape Town restaurant. We coaxed some insights from Reuben Riffel himself, ahead of the opening.
As we’re preparing to open, we’re looking forward to... welcoming Capetonians to sample our food and to enjoy our hospitality. Media response has been great and there’s already a good vibe.
We’ve called it... Reuben’s at One&Only Cape Town, because it’s a name people have come to know from Franschhoek.
When you walk into our space, you immediately... get the sense of South African style. We all enjoy feeling stylish and special now and again.
What makes us different to all the other restaurants in the area is... the selection on the menu, the extensive wine list and personalised service.
