We’ve just discovered Port Elizabeth’s newest gem – St James Restaurant and Cocktail Bar, in Heugh Road, Walmer.
St James Restaurant is the latest brainchild of Etienne Barkhuysen, who also owns the highly successful Salt Restaurant in Stanley Street.
St James Restaurant offers a comprehensive menu
With possibly the most comprehensive food and drinks menu in the Bay – there is literally something for everyone’s taste!
The food is absolutely exquisite and the substantial menu offers anything from burgers, seafood, wraps, salads, pastas and dare I even mention steaks that will literally melt in your mouth!
The food is exquisite…
My personal fave is the Mexican Pizza, made with spicy mince, jalapeño, caramelised onions and of course no pizza is complete without a generous helping of mozzarella. This pizza just has the perfect ‘bite’for me and the caramelised onions gives it a bit of a sweet twist. I’d highly recommend you wash this delicious pizza down with an ice-cold Coronita from the bar.
Another meal that I need to mention is the 300g Rump Steak with Brandy Peppercorn Sauce served with French Fries – the fries is a MUST because they have the BEST “green sauce”.
The drinks menu is just as impressive. They offer craft beer on tap, Gin on tap, an extensive Gin collection and a delightful selection of cocktails, jars and bowls too, making this the perfect place to unwind after a hard week at work.
On the drinks menu my favourites include the Aperol Spritz, Nutella Chocolate Jar, and of course no visit is complete without a Lindt Chocolate Vodka.
Open for early breakfasts…
St James is now open from 6am in the mornings – so you can start your day with a delicious breakfast on your way to work.
It is also a very popular place for brunch, dinner or for a fun night with friends, or maybe a romantic night out.
If you love a good coffee or cappuccino, I’m happy to let you know that St James uses imported Italian Carrera coffee to make their smooth Italian Cappuccino. Being a bit of a coffee snob I can tell you that they really serve some of the best coffee in town.
The prices are very fair, the portions generous and the ambience just perfect – you have no excuse not to try this delightful new restaurant.
