Sepial's Kitchen offers both a la carte and seasonal tasting menus. We are a smaller restaurant, and to offer the best experience to our guests, we have limited the seats to 12 heads per service; with that in mind, booking is essential - especially on Thursday and Friday evenings.
Booking & confirmation
We may not be able to answer the phone during service hours (1200 - 1400 and 1800 and 2100) as we are a small crew and may have our hands full during this time. Please phone us before lunch and dinner service if it is necessary.
Bookings made through DinePlan will be confirmed instantly.
Inquiries made through email may take up to 2 hours to process, and will be confirmed by either an email or an SMS.
Bookings for our tasting menu need a 24 hours notice in advance, and preferablly 4 hours for our a la carte menu.
Our maximum capacity for larger parties is 6 guests (depending on availability); with our limited floor space, groups larger than 6 may impact the dining experience of our other guests.
If you would like to book for a group larger than 6, please contact us by email. If it is possible, we will reserve the floor for your group during lunch or dinner on a set date.
For a private dinner for 10 persons, we charge a minimum of R300 per person for canapés and a 3 course meal, excluding service and the cost of drinks.
You are more than welcome to bring your own alcohol; we charge a corkage of R40 per bottle which covers maintaining glasses.
Sometimes Chef Sepial may share her private research materials with you; the wines you may find include varieties of Chenin Blanc, Riesling, Cinsault, Pinot Noir, Pinotage and other interesting blends.
If you are not fond of wine, please feel free to ask us about our gin and homemade kombucha (depending on availability).
We are capable of accommodating most general dietary requirements. However, if you are a celiac or seriously allergic to nuts or shellfish, please contact us before making a reservation. We use wheat flour, peanuts and prawns in the kitchen and cross contamination may occur despite our best efforts.
We do not have a special menu specifically for our younger guests, but we would like to accommodate adventurous future foodies, one at a time. Please let us know in advance when you make a reservation and bring your own baby seat and cutlery and cups as needed.
As we have a small dining area, please be mindful of your child/children's behaviour - we would like everyone to be able to enjoy their time with us.
We are more than happy to accommodate dogs during our lunch service; as with children, please be mindful of their behaviour towards other guests.
Please contact us as soon as possible in the event you are unable to make it to your reservation or will be late by more than 15 minutes.
We would appreciate being notified of cancellations at least 24 hours in advance for our tasting menu, and 4 hours in advance for our a la carte menu.
