African Safaris: The John Platter Wine Gallery

The Fig Tree Restaurant is located between Ballito and Salt Rock on the beautiful Eco Friendly Simbithi Golf Estate.   Named after the fig tree in the centre of the clubhouse, the restaurant boasts stunning views of the golf course.  The large deck, situated under shady trees offers “al fresco” dining, and the wine cellar offers a perfect venue for private dinner parties.  The wine list is selected by local resident John Platter.

The restaurant offers live music on selected evenings and the Curry Buffets and Sunday Carvery are extremely popular with both locals and visitors to the area. There is also a fantastic kids play park area where the kids can enjoy themselves whilst guests relax, lap up the view and enjoy a meal in the restaurant.

The Chef is none other than multiple award-winning Gerard van Staden, who has served up culinary masterpieces in several continents.

This wonderful restaurant is a real jewel on the North Coast.
