About Rest NCW Restaurant

NCW Restaurant

NCW Restaurant

Chef Ence Willemse, who has previously worked at award-winning restaurants Roots in Krugersdorp and Overture in Stellenbosch, has opened a new restaurant in Melville called NCW. In addition to the boutique eatery with a seasonal menu, NCW will offer a space for cocktail parties, exhibitions and pop-ups.

The style of food might be labelled fine dining, but Ence calls it ‘food with a story’. Part of that story is a focus on the provenance of the ingredients he uses, from the farm to his kitchen. This philosophy extends to the wine offering, each bottle of which has a great story to tell.

The Edwardian building that houses the restaurant overlooking Main Road in Melville has been lovingly restored. The chef lives in another restored residence on the property. This venue has been hard-won: Ence even put in a blue-collar stint to raise the capital he needed to bring NCW to life.

We are true foodies and always on the lookout for a new special place. NCW was completely different from any fine dining restaurant I have been to in Joburg. It is set in an old beautifully decorated house which gives you the feeling that you are eating at a friend's house. We were only 2 couples for lunch but the staff were still incredibly attentive as if they were truly happy to see us. One of the highlights for us, was that the waiter seemed to be a true foodie too and in a very natural and unobtrusive way spoke about some of his favorite dishes and got very excited to introduce each course to us. The food was very inventive and beautifully presented but I found 1 of dishes lacked a little punch (I am being extremely picky here) and that is why I only gave them 4 and a half stars. My husband loved everything and even slyly licked his plate a few times, We will definitely visit again... In fact we were trying to think of an excuse to have a dinner party with some friends at NCW
