Urchin at Hyatt Regency Cape Town: Fine Dining Events in Cape Town

Nestled in the vibrant Cape Town, URCHIN embodies the art of culinary excellence. Like a beautifully choreographed ballet, the restaurant orchestrates dining excellence where sustainable fish and seafood take centre stage. With a commitment to meticulous craftsmanship, this restaurant in Cape Town embraces the hallmarks of elemental ocean dining, impeccable service, locally sourced ingredients, and a carefully curated wine cellar featuring world-class selections.

Just like its namesake, the menu unveils a symphony of delectable seafood creations that captivate both the palate and the eye. Each dish ignites all five senses, inviting guests on an unforgettable journey of flavours and textures. Portions are thoughtfully curated, allowing for a multi-course adventure where the bounties of the ocean shine as true stars.

Start off with delectable Lüderitz oysters; well-seasoned tuna tartare with lime and green mango; and a neat, zesty Cape Salmon ceviche topped with peppers, heirloom tomatoes and spring onions. Then there are several types of signature sushi rolls and nigiri, prepared by one of three on-site fundis.

In the hot section, go purist with well-cooked prawns in thermidor sauce, or try the Kabeljou. This Cape favourite gets a playful twist with lemon, leeks, turmeric and a parsley emulsion that’s bound to impress.

Apart from the meals, the short and sharp drinks list includes delectable cocktails and wines that span from a range of Winelands regions. Keep an eye on some steely Chenins and Chardonnays that go well with flavourful seafood.

Urchin pulls you away from the buzzy CBD energy. The atmosphere in this intimate dining room is moody with dimmed lighting, tasteful artworks adorn the walls, paired with attentive service. If you’re looking to get a taste of what Cape Town haute cuisine is about right now or a romantic spot for the perfect date night, you’ve just found one.

At URCHIN, elegance, delight, and culinary mastery are intertwined to create an experience that transcends expectations.
