About Wild Fig Restaurant

 

You’ll find The Wild Fig Restaurant on the historic Valkenberg Estate, just outside of Cape Town’s oldest suburb, Observatory. A hidden gem on the outskirts of the city, the tract of land hugs tight to the banks of the Liesbeek River and has been spared intrusion from the urban frame around it. The ancient waterway seams through the Mother City, as alive today with fish and birdlife as it’s always been, its banks popular with cyclists, photographers and dog-walkers (your pooch is welcome at the Wild Fig too).

The whole scene makes me think of old Cape Town. The one you glimpse in faded photographs in your parents’ albums. It’s Table Mountain, whitewashed walls, endless summers, academia and poetry. And it’s the kind of space that immediately intrigues with its stories and sense of place.

Driving up, ample parking spaces shaded by trees are the first thing to greet me, quickly followed by Freddy, the smiling security guard. On the way up to the restaurant make sure to stop and admire its namesake: a giant Moreton Bay wild fig tree, which was planted between 1840 and 1860 (one of the oldest in South Africa) and is a living national monument (also on the estate, growing by The Manor House, is the oldest almond tree in the country).

The restaurant consists of a two-storey main building, a garden courtyard as well as a country-style pub, Annie’s Arms, set in a converted dairy barn. The style of the architecture is Cape vernacular (an informal version of Cape Dutch design), again reminding me of sepia photographs from another time.

Inside, the gracious dining room has deep, cool stone walls, and a slatted bamboo ceiling. I can imagine long, cosy dinners with friends and family here or a romantic interlude at a corner table. There’s a large stone fireplace – so typical of this kind of old Cape homestead – that roars to life all through the colder months. But today it’s a still, warm afternoon and there’s only one place to be, and that’s outside.

The classic 1800s façade conceals a warm, modern interior housing a revolving series of solo and group exhibitions of African art: paintings, sculpture & photography. 99 Loop’s sunlit ground floor is  a space for more playful installation work. A new wing, designed by the team from Rennie Scurr Adendorff (who refurbished the Fugard Theatre in District Six), adds to the Gallery’s contemporary appeal, with over 100m2 of exhibition space, as well as a reading area and treed courtyard.
