Bistro sixteen82

The generous and sexy estate agent spoilt me with a birthday gift voucher for Steenberg's Bistro sixteen82.
I know, it's been awhile since my birthday- it's a lunchtime and early evening tapas bar (till 8 pm) and I was holding out for a long languid lunch with the art teacher, but with ever changing school runs and the art teacher's sleeping pattern- I had to let it go.

We settled on midweek early evening and what a treat!  I expected good, well, what can I say- they kicked 'goods' butt.

They have one of those rare menus, everything was an enticing option- nothing was boring....that said, we just kept going - we must have ordered 6 different tapas.

The beef tataki, recommended by our perfect waitress, is their signature dish, and a stunning taste sensation, it brought back memories of our test kitchen dinner. We also consumed the west coast mussels, the grilled sardines, the crispy calamari and the chalmar trinchado- all seriously delicious, generous portions and great value for money.

Next time, we'll be back in the daylight to sit on the terrace with views of the vineyards- but as you can see, their winter view is pretty special too.

  1. OMG that looks good....and I don't even eat sardines.

    Messy, huh?

  2. Spot on Jane- the sardines were Fanie's only criticism, in Greece they are smaller and you can eat them bones and all, but these were a little too big which makes the bones a bit of an issue...but delish none the less! x

  3. Looks scrumptious, and those views are breathtaking. Can't wait to see the vineyard views.

  4. Ooooo holy hell it looks yummy. I am missing Safrican restaurants and food cooked from great quality ingredients.
