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
Thank you for our special treat!
Absolutely magical! From the atmosphere to the staff to the food - we could not find fault in any aspect of our evening!!! We were well received from the moment we arrived; the staff treated us like royalty, we were not left wanting at all - glasses always full and plates always empty! The food was indescribable - perfection on a plate, no other...
The most perfect birthday at the packshed restaurant. What stunning views and gorgeous food..WOW...THANKS TO Daniel the owner for making my day extra special.
Fantastic food, and friendly service!!
Amazing atmosphere and food !!!! Everything was great !!!! Definitely worth visiting.
Very friendly and professional service, scrumptious food and ver extensive wine list. “Barn” like atmosphere and surroundings (it’s called The Packshed for a reason), although something should be done about air conditioning (there is none), even if it was just a couple of ceiling fans.
I enjoyed the warmth of the fire place. It was very cosy and I enjoyed my meal. Definitely plan on going back.
A true gem among all the eateries in the area. Gourmet food for adults and children alike. I can't reccomend this place enough!
Just awesome. Thank you guys for the delicious dinners! :)

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.
