At the Black Oystercatcher Restaurant we live by the season, offering a fresh, intimate food experience. At the Black Oystercatcher Restaurant, we live by the season. We serve fresh produce that grows in our own garden as the seasons dictate. As a result, we offer an organic dining experience, set in a relaxed country atmosphere. The newly renovated Cottages offer the perfect county getaway. Get some fresh air, enjoy our wonderful fresh herb and vegetable garden (you can even use it for your cooking) and the beautiful views over the Elim area (with a glass of wine of course).
Black Oystercatcher is commited to making wine with the least possible interference in a natural, healthy way with grapes grown on the farm in a sustainable way. The boutique wines offer crisp yet elegant, fruity flavours, formed by the cool coastal winds and the unique Elim soil. Our wines are made by hand using techniques like extended lees contact to ensure premium quality wine. For your convenience and ease of use, our wines are bottled with screw caps to enable you to keep the wine in the fridge for a few days.
