Get Excited about Shimmy Beach Club’s 2018 Winter Menu


Although it has been described as “A little piece of Ibiza in Cape Town”, foodies, sunshine seekers, winter wanderers or simply anyone able to appreciate the craft of a lovingly prepared dish now have the opportunity to discover the recently launched Shimmy Beach Club’s winter menu, featuring a myriad of delicious meals for all to enjoy during the colder months ahead.

Shimmy Beach Club is something of an institution among Cape Town’s elite, offering enhanced dining and lifestyle experiences with the vantage point of exceptional Atlantic Ocean views.  Shimmy Beach Club can host private functions and parties, while also being a popular choice among visiting families with children. Created to perfection and propelling Shimmy Beach Club into the spotlight yet again, diners (regulars and new comers alike) can indulge this winter and ignite their senses with the sophisticated cuisine prepared by Chef Adrian Cook. Situated in the V&A Waterfront and overlooking the ocean with a striking backdrop of Table Mountain, diners are certain to enjoy a memorable time and fall in love with Cape Town’s winter season for all the right reasons!


This combined 2018 Shimmy Beach Club winter menu embraces all things wonderful in winter, offering a selection of dishes for every taste, occasion and craving. A mere glimpse at this oh-so mouth-watering menu will have your senses tingling – it certainly did for us!  All the ingredients used are fresh, seasonal, locally sourced and beautifully prepared. Health conscious diners need not break any winter dieting rules; simply enquire about Shimmy’s carb-free pizza and sushi options, or ask about their vegetarian varieties.

Begin your journey of indulgence with one of Shimmy’s winter starters and choose from the likes of potato gnochi with truffle cauliflower puree served with sautéed oyster mushrooms and a sage beurre noisette, grilled or fried baby patagonian calamari with savoury rice and tartar sauce, and for meat lovers a flavourful venison and leak ragout with red wine poached pears and a red wine reduction sauce. We also love the autumn inspired maple roasted butternut & sautéed exotic mushroom salad!

Choose to dine inside the restaurant or else on the restaurant’s deck if the weather is warm. The Whiskey Room and VIP Room are both perfect for private and sophisticated functions, adding exclusivity to your experience. The exclusive Shimmy Beach Club is renowned for its exceptional dishes, fantastic venue, amazing parties and trendy Shimmy Lounge – guests can except great service all year around with winter being no exception.


Shimmy Beach Club’s selection of winter main courses add warmth to any cloudy and cold day, while still remaining true to its reputation of providing diners with flavourful (and hearty) meals. This menu features meals that are both wholesome and contemporary, for the perfect outing with friends or family.

While the menu includes favourites like pizza varieties and a comprehensive and divine sushi menu and dim-sum menu, diners will also be able to choose from unique dishes such a traditional chicken and mushroom pot pie that is served with pumpkin fritters in a caramel sauce, a balsamic glazed biltong encrusted ostrich fillet on roasted beetroot and hummus puree, the inspired barbecue pulled pork belly burger or the ever-popular beer battered fish and chips. These are just a few main courses featured on the winter menu – come and decide for yourself which dishes are your favourite.

For vegetarians diners, the red lentil vegetarian burger is a great option and is served on a fresh wholewheat bun with avocado, pickled red onion, radish, crumbled feta, yogurt and a dill dressing with a side serving of delicious sweet potato fries.
