About ëlgr Restaurant

ëlgr Restaurant on Kloof Street in Cape Town took advantage of the third alcohol prohibition to revamp and hire a new sommelier, LeRoi Van de Vyver, previously of the famed Belthazar Restaurant and Wine Bar. The main wine list is incredibly well thought out, and LeRoi has introduced an ever-changing Sommelier Selection list with some of South Africa's most coveted allocation wines. (Fun fact: LeRoi has made it to the finals in many sommelier competitions, so be sure to ask him about the stress of using port tongs on stage!)

Alheit Cartology and Mullineux Schist Syrah are a few of the iconic wines you will find on this list, along with the coveted Sadie Palladius and Columella. You will even find the highly sought after Klein Constantia Vin de Constance.

Just like great wine, the food is meant to be shared. You can mix and match your own, or there is the option for the Chef's Choice sharing menu! They also have some tasty and Instagram-worthy cocktails and a few beers and mocktails if that is your vibe.

More recommendations

  • A succinct list with a strong focus on sustainability, both within the choices on the list as well as the way of working. A focus on local producers – not only wineries – and even the hopefully soon more wide-spread idea to serve some wines by the glass ’on tap’. All the best for the future years!
