Thursday is #QuizNight The Rocket Scientists are giving everyone a run for their money at our #QuizNight on a Thursday. These evenings are proving to be an excellent way to keep the cold at bay.

Weekend of Love

Weekend of Love


Posted on Feb 12, 2014

This weekend will be filled with love at Dutchies. We are thrilled that a couple have chosen to have their pre wedding celebration at Dutchies ON Valentine’s evening! How romantic is that? This does mean we are closed on Friday evening but Dutchies will be infused with romance for the whole weekend.  The Dutch keep Valentines celebrations simple – it’s all about the declaration of love, the moment, the atmosphere, the music. Bring your beloved to Dutchies for a meal this weekend. Everything is sprinkled with love. We have some great specials, and some new tapas and cocktails specially designed for the occasion. A Bundle of Cuddles Meet Bloos – the newest (and cutest) member of the Dutchies family. We are most certainly in love! She is named after our favourite wine from Hermanuspietersfontein, Bloos. Bloos is a Bordeaux-style blush wine that we love too! Well perhaps it’s an addiction? It is delicious, as lively and unique as our new pup. We’re pet friendly so your ‘furry’ loved ones are welcome too! Indonesian Rijsttafel Our monthly Indische Rijsttafel is coming up on Wednesday 19th February. Rebecca loves these evenings because she gets to share more of the dishes traditionally served. Please book ASAP as these evenings are very...
