Schulphoek Restaurant - fine dining in Hemanus
The guest house’s organic potager garden produces fresh vegetables and herbs for the daily menu du jour, and local fishermen and farmers deliver venison and fish. Schulphoek believes strongly in supporting local farmers and fishermen that adhere to sustainable practices. The menu du jour changes daily to reflect the seasonal and abundant fresh produce of the region. Guests are welcome to plan special meals, fish platters or special occasions with the chef. Lasting friendships are born over dinner at the large sea facing dining table and for those that enjoy a more intimate experience, private dining can be arranged upon request.
Schulphoek has a wine cellar offering some 12,000 bottles of local and international wine, some carefully aged for a decade - a real find for wine aficionados. Great pride is taken in selecting and ageing wines from cellars and wine makers.
Under the care of the gardener of twenty years, the raised-bed vegetable potager produces nearly all the fruit and vegetables served in the restaurant. Two long walls weighed down with passion fruit plants protect the rows of succulent lettuce, spinach, fennel, and herbs. In season guests enjoy papaya, guava and strawberries. All water for the potager is from rainwater harvesting tanks. Schulphoek mulch their own all-organic waste compost.
