The Packshed Restaurant

Artisanal Tastes of Simplicity

Explore our Menu 

Discover Fusion FoodFrom Around the World

From our travels around the world over the past few years, we got inspired by many of the things we’ve savoured – Spanish dinner parties, late-night brasseries in France and Italy and just simple good cooking at afternoon eateries in Southern Africa and Asia. Our menu is based on these experiences, using earthly techniques like wood grilling, hot or cold smoking, and when it feels right, offering fusion styled dishes from all over the world. 

We work directly with local farms to source meats and seafood to ensure they are treated well, whether dry-aged or grass-fed, organic or raised through sustainable methods. Because of this, we tend to cook things simple, with only a few ingredients, and lots of love.

On behalf of the Packshed-Team, we hope you come get to know us, and share some of our passions for taste, experience, and simple pleasures. To the families we know and yet to know, couples that want to share a special dinner, or those just looking for a weekday meal. We welcome you.

Your Hosts, Connie, Daniel, Sam and Mario
