Justice Malala on Babylonstoren

May 30th, 2011

Justice Malala

Justice Malala visited Babylonstoren recently, and has written a (glowing) review in this weekend’s Financial Mail. Not only did he really enjoy his meal at Babel, his tour of our beautiful garden, and his peek into our guest quarters, he was really struck by the entire force of vision and committment to excellence that makes Babylonstoren particularly special. This is how he put it:

It is rare to visit a restaurant and be struck, not only by its beauty, service, food and insistence on aesthetic excellence, but by the vision behind it. Babylonstoren, owned by Naspers CEO Koos Bekker and his wife, Karen Roos, will one day be spoken about not because of all the things that define a magnificent wine farm and restaurant, but for the sheer force of the vision behind it.

It is not a place that was built for today. It was made with an eye for tomorrow and a close reading of where the future of money, politics, arts, culture and commerce lies.

Thank you for the kind words, Mr Malala, and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Of course, that goes for all our guests and patrons, and if you haven’t visited Babylonstoren yet, read the full Financial Mail review, and we’re sure it’ll have you adding a visit to the top of your Must Do list.
