• Launched last year, Cape Town’s signature ethically harvested seafood restaurant GALJOEN, has introduced a multi-course winter lunch menu, offering exceptional value at only R550 per person.

    Located in historic District Six, GALJOEN quickly became known for its exceptional South African shoreline dining, showcasing the finest sustainably-caught seafood from the Cape coast. Drawing on their culinary expertise from their hit sibling restaurant Belly of the Beast, chef patrons Neil Swart and Anouchka Horn, along with GALJOEN’s head chef Isca Stoltz, have crafted a winter lunch menu that embraces the Cape of Storms season.


    “At GALJOEN, we’re passionate about showcasing the incredible diversity of South African seafood and highlighting the importance of responsible dining practices,” explains Horn. Swart adds, “If it’s not ethically sourced from South African shores, you won’t find it on our menu.”


    Led by head chef Stoltz, GALJOEN’s kitchen is dedicated to creating dishes that celebrate the natural flavours of fresh seafood. Stoltz draws on childhood memories of holidays in Mozambique, where shellfish was gathered along the coastline and fish was procured fresh from local markets. Each GALJOEN dish emphasizes the freshness of the seafood, ensuring it takes center stage.

    “Our winter lunch menu reflects the changing season and the bounty of the sea. In every dish, our primary emphasis is on the ingredients,” states Stoltz. GALJOEN has partnered with leading seafood suppliers committed to sustainable fishing practices. From farmed mussels sourced from Saldanha Bay to a variety of fish caught by artisanal fishers, GALJOEN prioritises quality and sustainability in every dish. The menu is not restricted to a specific number of courses; it’s all about what’s available from local fishers and merchants and what inspires Chef Stoltz.


    GALJOEN’s multi-course winter lunch menu is a testament to the team’s commitment to offering exceptional value without compromising on authenticity and quality.

    Lunch is available at R550 per person from 12:30, Thursday to Saturday, valid until 31 August 2024.

    GALJOEN is located in Cape Town’s historic CBD at 99 Harrington Street.
