A story of remarkable renewal
Xigera is our love letter to the magic of the African bush.
For more than 70 years The Grill Room has been a beacon of gracious service and elegant cuisine, a destination for celebrations and occasions. For marking milestones and forging lifelong memories. Today, under the culinary leadership of Executive Chef Kevin Joseph, The Grill Room delivers a sophisticated fine dining experience that blends classical continental cuisine with the bountiful produce and vibrant hospitality of Africa.
The menu offers a combination of classic plates created by Bea Tollman, president and founder of The Red Carnation Hotel Collection, alongside signature dishes and contemporary creations. Adding a delicate flourish of culinary theatre to the experience, a signature of The Grill Room is the authentic Gueridon service that sees certain dishes prepared and plated tableside.
The adjoining vinoteque offers an award-winning wine list, with an impressive collection of venerable South African estates alongside a focused collection of international wines.
Please note The Leopard Bar is temporarily closed. However, guests are welcome to use The New York Bar with many different experiences on offer.
