Drum Restaurant in Stellenbosch Sadly Closed
Family-run eatery hitting all the right flavour notes.
Sadly Drum restaurant closed its doors but not all is lost. They promise to re-open in the future to continue delighting diners and their tastebuds with their superb cuisine and relaxed atmosphere.
Nestled among the oak tree leaves on the first floor of the Black Horse Centre is a relaxed, family-run eatery hitting all the right flavour notes. Brothers Danie and Moskou du Toit (also part of the band Spoegwolf) opened Drum Restaurant in February 2018 as a passion project and side gig to their music, and it hit the quiet streets of Stellenbosch with a bang.
The small seasonal menu is organised by Nibbles (including utterly addictive deep-fried olives, arancinis and fries), Starters, Mains and Desserts. The food is presented as fine dining for everyday folk.
We recommend the mushroom tortellini, and the saffron panna cotta served with warm honey and saffron milk – large enough to share but, trust us, you won’t want to.
Each dish is evokes a childhood memory for chef Moskou, who trained under Liam Tomlin, while Danie hosts and entertains diners with some tunes. The kitchen operates seamlessly, managing to communicate effectively with very few verbal cues while the wait staff are slick and attentive, ready to cater to your every need.
Tuesday – Friday, 6pm – 11pm
Saturday, 12pm – 11pm
On nights that Spoegwolf are performing, the restaurant closes, so please book ahead to avoid disappointment.
