Come at Mink & Trout for LUNCH and get your SPECIAL: gourmet CAESAR SALAD and CHIPS for only R 89


MINK & TROUT is a simple and considered WINE BAR BISTRO and RESTAURANT on one of CAPE TOWN’s trendiest culinary strips – BREE STREET. The WINE BAR BISTRO RESTAURANT is the brainchild of chef’s Leigh Trout and Kevin Mink, who have created a warm and comfortable atmosphere for serving up beautiful and delicious food, that is always accompanied by very good wine. A real attention to detail is seen in Leigh’s unique menus, as well as how he plates his dishes, which end up being nothing short of artistic. The RESTAURANT is a treat for tourists but most importantly for us, it’s a place where our local visitors can comfortably return to again and again. We also love hosting special events at MINK & TROUT WINE BAR BISTRO and hire out the RESTAURANT for private functions regularly.


Our menu is simple, seasonal and authentically Mink & Trout. We try to stick to local produce and we like to change things up regularly but some favourites include: Risotto Arancini with goat’s cheese, cauliflower and mushrooms, our timeless Free Range Chicken Pie, our unique Caesar Salad and our delicious beef burger. We also love ending off meals with a sweet treat so have put a great deal of love into our classic Vanilla Crème Brûlée and our Organic Yoghurt Panna Cotta recipes.

“The thing I love most about being a chef is how I am able to express myself artistically through my cooking, everything I do has a little bit of soul in it.”

 Leigh started his journey through training for management in hospitality but ended up loving the kitchen the most. He first worked under a German chef who guided him in the discipline that connected being organized and refined and producing something exceptional but he was always an entrepreneur and a fiercely independent chef so running his own kitchen was inevitable. He first worked in a number of luxury lodges and gained further experience abroad (often times in Michelin star kitchens) before coming home to get stuck into a simpler, less competitive pursuit of his own. Leigh is an artistic chef and a businessman so Mink & Trout has been an exploration of both sides of his character.
