The Stone Kitchen Opens At Dunstone Wines, Wellington

The incredibly talented and charming Johan van Schalkwyk (pictured above with one of his waitresses) has opened The Stone Kitchen on Dunstone in Wellington. I enjoyed lunch here last weekend and can’t speak enough of how fresh, delicious and beautifully presented his food is.

The setting of Dunstone Wines is wonderful with the Hawekwa mountains as a back drop. The restaurant seating is partly in the working cellar and partly outside. This is a great spot for children to run around on the lawn and play in the Dunstone inspired playground whilst their parents enjoy some time out.

Wellington is lucky to have Johan, with his rich history as a fabulous food producer. A stint at a chateau in Normandy that had it’s own organic garden, inspired him to want to know where his food comes from. From this he has moulded his philosophy that only the freshest seasonal ingredients must be used and from Wellington Johan sources wonderful home grown products to enhance his wonderful offerings and in order to comply by this ideal.

The inside seating is among the tanks of the winery.

The ever changing chalk board menu has the yummiest offerings and depicts Johan’s fresh local food philosophy, with a specialist kiddies menu too …

The playground and sand pit makes for happy children, Dunstone style.

This little gate leads to the dam where the ducks can be fed by big and small.

The Stone Kitchen is open from 8am to 4pm Wednesday to Sunday, and the number is 021 8642451. Johan also has a catering company For more on the award winning wines at Dunstone see
