    The true star, however, is the award-winning seasonal tasting menu crafted by acclaimed Chef Genghis San. His dishes reimagine South Africa’s diverse culinary heritage with a creative, globally-inspired flair.

    Highlights from the “Tastes of Our Heritage” section include a sublime sweetcorn risotto with charred baby corn and a beloved chakalaka spice blend reinvented as an arancini with a zesty tomato chili jam center. Each artfully plated bite pays homage to local flavors through a refreshingly modern lens.

    San’s skills truly shine in the “Foraged and Farmed” offerings, which make innovative use of indigenous South African ingredients. The signature scorched aubergine is a standout, imbued with incredible smoky depth and complemented by earthy mushrooms, nutty dukkah spice, and bright blackberry yogurt. Even a simple roasted cauliflower is transformed into something sublime when paired with brown butter and a vibrant red pepper salsa.

    For heartier appetites, there’s a succulent grass-fed beef short rib enriched with rosemary jus and pomme puree, or a tender herb-crusted lamb loin enhanced by bold Moroccan spices.

    For a decadent finale, indulge in the dark chocolate cremeux – an ultra-rich confection accented by whimsical popping candy fairy floss and dulce de leche crunch.

    From start to finish, the exceptional service and immersive ambiance at Eclipse makes for an unparalleled dining experience. Whether celebrating a special occasion or simply treating yourself, this award-winning modern African culinary gem is worth the splurge for a truly stellar evening.
