Tokara Restaurant, situated 400 meters above sea level on top of the Helshoogte Pass outside Stellenbosch, offers its guests terroir focused contemporary cuisine, award-winning wines and dramatic views over Stellenbosch and False Bay. The building housing the restaurant is a Cape architectural icon utilising glass, steel and stone.
Tokara Restaurant opened its doors in October 2001 and was one of the very first iconic winery restaurants established in the Cape Winelands area of South Africa.
A prominent feature of the restaurant interior is five large-scale tapestries by internationally renowned artist William Kentridge. No other venue in the world has as many of these works from Kentridge’s “Porter Series” on display to the public.
