Welcome to

LOKAL Restaurant in B'bos

Exceptional. Occasional. Unique.

LOKAL is an occasional dining experience in Baardskeerdersbos, South Africa

Once a month or so, chef Suzi Holtzhausen, together with LOKAL’s owners, Stanley & Lainy Carpenter, work their magic on local produce.
Every month, each menu experience is unique, inspired by unusual ingredients and food travels.

LOKAL strives for true provenance through

  • Sourcing produce from their own garden, local farms and markets, and local small producers;
  • Ensuring fish, poultry & meat is sustainably harvested; and
  • Preserving abundance by drying, bottling, curing, salting & pickling for future menu usage.

The LOKAL Experience

LOKAL offers a unique dining experience in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

Our kitchen and venue are operated completely off the grid and we observe a seasonal, local and sustainable approach to ingredient selection for our menus. We are friends who love food and nothing gives us more joy than sharing it with those who feel the same.

Join us to find out why guests return to us again and again for a long lunch at LOKAL.

With the focus on using local, seasonal ingredients, menus are only finalised a couple of days prior to each of our occasional dining dates, and so they are not available prior to your visit.  Sit back and enjoy the element of surprise!

Dietary requirements (within reason) are able to be accommodated, please just let us know at the time of booking.
