I loved everything about ëlgr. The modern space offers more than enough COVID friendly tables, especially with the stunning and courtyard and big glass walls. The chef's menu (automatically the choice when booking for tables of 7+) is placed as sharing plates on the table and served in 3 courses. Dessert is additional to the menu, if you please. We were tempted and ordered additional dishes, which made it impossible to finish the food brought to the table, as the servings are very generous. The flavours are amazing and everything we had was absolutely delicious. The wine list is modern and exciting and offers you quite a few new wines to try. I can see ëlgr becoming one of my regular restaurants and I can highly recommend it!

About ëlgr

Chef Jesper Nilsson

Jesper, who hails from Sweden, trained at the Institute of Culinary Arts in Stellenbosch and has worked for Darren Badenhorst at Grande Provence, Richard Carstens at Tokara Restaurant and Arno Janse van Rensburg at The Kitchen at Maison, Franschhoek. To gain further experience in the international culinary scene, Jesper travelled first to New Zealand and then to Sweden, where he joined Andreas Dahlberg’s team at Bastard Restaurant in Malmö. On his return to South Africa Jesper reunited with Arno at Janse & Co. Jesper’s vision for elgr is fine food, great wine and inspiring cocktails, all served in a relaxed environment. Menus are seasonal and change often, with exceptional, original, yet uncomplicated flavours. The dishes are creatively presented with simple, fresh ingredients.

“I take inspiration from my Nordic background and combine it with my culinary experience from South Africa. I take pride in craftsmanship and strive to create dishes that are authentic, trying to understand not only the flavours but also the cultural background of each component in the dish. Limiting yourself to one particular style means you are defining the outcome before you go through the process.”
