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

The Packshed is tucked away from the hustle and bustle 3km from Margate Beach, settled in the heart of a natural, unspoiled bush vegetation, within a 120 ha of Sweetdale Farm, 120km from Durban. From South Coast Toll Road: Turn off from the highway on the Margate/Uvongo/Seaslope Road off-ramp No 33. Turn right at top of off-ramp - go across the highway - follow the road past Margate Country Club; Sebenza Nursery to the T-junction. Follow the sign: Sweetdale Adventure Camp and The Packshed - Fusion Food Restaurant. At the T-junction, turn right. After +/- 600m turn left into the Entrance: You will see the big sign: The Packshed, next to the Sign: Sweetdale Camp.
