Back for the summer season (October 2014 to March 2015) by popular demand is the monthly Astronomy Gastronomy, where you will be treated to a sunset dinner in the light and airy Café Grill before embarking on a starry journey to the hotel’s unique outdoor events space, ‘The Kraal’, accompanied by the astronomy experts of Over the Moon Tours.
The 3-course menu offers mouth-watering choices such as Executive Chef Christo Pretorius’ starter dish of Prawn Dhal with cauliflower, pickled cucumber, sultanas, coriander yoghurt and mango chutney, and the famous Vanilla Crème brûlée as dessert. Named one of eight WWF–SASSI (South African Sustainable Seafood Initiative) Trailblazers at this year’s SASSI Seafood Circle Awards, Pretorius is an enthusiastic fisherman himself. He loves working with green listed, sustainable fish such as hake, farmed cob, monk, pole caught yellowfin tuna, salmon trout and dorado to create his delicious Fresh Catch of the Day as main course, served with dill pancake, Malay spiced butternut, mung beans, confit baby fennel and curried velouté.
After dinner guests will walk up the path to The Kraal via the hotel’s fragrant herb garden, passing ancient Milkwood trees and taking in Table Mountain’s magnificent flora. During the 1.5 hour stargazing experience on the slopes of the Twelve Apostles the astronomer will enlighten guests on the spellbinding stars in the Southern Hemisphere – a professional telescope allowing for a close-up look at the Milky Way. Thanks to the unique seaside and mountain location of The Twelve Apostles Hotel there is minimal light pollution, making for spectacular night skies.
