The Robertson Small Hotel – that uber stylish boutique hotel with 10 irresistibly luxurious rooms in the heart of the Breede River Valley, not to mention the home of Reuben’s restaurant at the Robertson Small Hotel – is offering a culinary experience not to be passed up. What: Dinner under the stars. Executive Chef Tiaan van Greunen will create five meals inspired by strawberries, each carefully paired with a wine of his selection. The starter will be a smoked salmon mousse with strawberry tartlet, while dessert will be coupled with a live music and dance performance. What else: We can highly recommend spending a night here with your loved one. If you do take our advice, for the month of February they are offering a bottle of wine to enjoy at Reuben’s at the Robertson Small Hotel, as well as a complimentary gift, romantic treats and a R100 gift card to be used on any spa treatment of R300 or more at their very own Wellness Room. Why we rate it: This really is the definition of a boutique hotel; the staff are a pleasure, the interiors subtly chic, yet comfortable, and the food synonymous with the Reuben’s reputation. When: Valentine’s Day, Thursday 14 February at 19:00. Booking is essential. Where: The Robertson Small Hotel, 58 van Reenen Street, Robertson, Western Cape. Costs: R240 per person including the wine pairings. Contacts: Phone 023-626-7200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
