Dirk Steyn has every reason to celebrate. Not only is he the best restaurant manager in South Africa, but his Durbanville Hills’ Tangram restaurant  recently scooped Best South African Cuisine on a global level.

The restaurant was bestowed with no less than three awards at the annual Haute Grandeur Global Restaurant Awards: Best South African Cuisine on a Global Level, Best Gourmet Cuisine in Africa and Best Restaurant Manager in South Africa.

The announcement was made at a gala dinner held in Kuala Lumpur, where the world’s top hospitality providers gathered to celebrate excellence in the industry.

Among South Africa’s most-awarded restaurants who competed in the various categories were La Colombe, Myoga, Jardine, Hartford Koi, Test Kitchen and the Pot Luck Club.

The Haute Grandeur Global Restaurant Awards acknowledges hospitality experiences across seven continents and in more than 60 countries.

Winners are selected by means of a rigorous rating process, based on a unique concept exclusive to Haute Grandeur, which relies on the feedback from guests rather than votes from judges or the general public.

An ecstatic Steyn said: “The hospitality industry is competitive and consumers demand consistent quality, exceptional service and unique experiences that entice them to return.

“Dining out is such a social, emotive engagement and consumers have extremely high expectations. We pride ourselves in delivering beyond expectations – whether it’s breakfast, a languid lunch or celebratory dinner.”
