The award-winning – some may say the best bistro in South Africa – has moved from its location in the foreshore to where the old Caveau used to be in Heritage Square on Bree/Shortmarket Street.
I went to check out the 'new' Bizerca Bistrot (no, that is not a typo) about a week ago and thoroughly enjoyed the food. It had been a while since I had eaten at the previous venue and was looking forward to trying the French-influenced cuisine...
The venue offers a great courtyard for lunches and warm evenings, while inside the restaurant offers cosy nooks, although the lighting is a little too dim for me in some parts. They also have a vertical garden, which offers a cool eco-friendly, fresh trouch.
Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me to take images of my food, but it was delicious!
I had the tomato salad, which came with a variety of heirloom, mixed tomatoes and a spicy tomato sorbet, which, when melted with the olive oil, created such beautiful flavour.
For mains I had the impala dish, which came with a artichoke flan, bok choi and sweetish (berry flavours I think) jus. The venison was cooked to perfection - medium rare and succulent.
For dessert I had the signature Granny Smith Apple Sorbet with Calvados - delicious and strong in alcohol, so mix the melting sorbet with the Calvados to take away the harsheness....
