Nestled in the heart of downtown Cape Town, FYN Restaurant offers visitors a divine dining experience. With its distinctive New York-inspired ambience and fusion of Japanese-inspired dishes with local indigenous fynbos vegetation, you can expect a unique approach to fine-dining. This 60-seater urban eatery, which Chef Peter Tempelhoff co-owns with Jennifer Hugé (General Manager) and Ashley Moss (Executive Chef) will entirely exceed your culinary expectations.

Looking over the historic Church Square, this culinary hotspot offers incomparable views of Table Mountain and Lions Head to complement your delectable dishes. With a shorter tasting menu than the usual fine dining establishments, FYN offers a unique format that is fitting to its location and of course its delectable dishes.

At the helm is Chef Peter Tempelhoff who describes the food as, “ingredient-focused cuisine drawing inspiration from South Africa’s culture, lore and society, as well as my jaunts around the world; especially my many journeys to Japan”.

FYN is only a stone’s throw from LABOTESSA and has been one of Cape Town’s culinary hotspots since its opening in 2018. With the ever-evolving global food trends, FYN stays far away from the run-of-the-mill, yet it infuses innovative ways to stay connected with clients by offering a variety of tasting menus to choose from upon your visit.

The menu – and decor for that fact – integrates African-inspired ingredients and aesthetics that complement the overarching Japanese infusion throughout the styles, tastes and combinations used. The condensed five-course kaiseki-style experience offers with it wonderfully original wine pairings.

Explore the fifth floor with a sophisticated and alluring interior design that invites you to witness the magic of the chefs in the kitchen with seating arranged around the kitchens centre. FYN illuminates an exquisite culinary experience right here on Church Square. Explore their menu here:
