The Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel has launched their summer Harvest Table lunches and I went along in December to experience this. Set up in two beautiful outdoor settings in their garden, one of the tables is made from a single piece of African teak suspended from a tree. Chef Rudi Liebenberg prepares a selection of seasonal and innovative multi-cultural dishes served family-style to the table. Perfect for any celebration or just a long lazy lunch with friends. I loved this style of eating and I loved all the food.

A beautifully decorated table & inspiring cocktail welcome you to a private corner of the garden where you relax in the shade for the afternoon. Nothing is rushed here and its al fresco dining at its best.
