about us...

where we come from...

Together we have seen the world, sailed it, tested it, tasted it, remember it and we're bringing it home...

Mariette,Chani and Dylan - together and seperately have traveled the world. Starting off fairly conventionally, studying dietetics and interior design at the University of Pretoria, they decided that a life of adventure was the way to go, and headed off into the sunset - literally sailed West in the direction of the Caribbean Islands. Here, in the wonderful world of luxury yachts, with it's many influenced and influential people,  the passion of cooking was born. Absorbing cultures, flavours, colours from the Caribbean islands, the Mediterranean sea,  lovely romantic places such as Italy, Spain and the south of France, they cooked in calm and storm for almost 12 years.

In 2008, we decided to head home for a bit and assisted in opening two lovely French Brasserie style restaurants in Cape Town and Stellenbosch. An experience that left us pondering...

Another year of exclusive luxury cuisine on the water was just what we needed to convince ourselves to fix our destination on South Africa, and share the knowledge and passion we have gathered with the hungry folks, the eager folks and the happy folks at home...

where we're going...

These days, 'zero tolerance' laws, outrageous wine and food prices, bad service and boring menu's are some of the first things that come to mind when trying to choose a restaurant.

At d.o.u.g.h we would like to make your dining experience as enjoyable and relaxing as possible - so we come to you!!

Group of old friends getting together - no problem! We design a menu, set a lovely table and bring the wine... We and our professional team cook up a storm in your kitchen, serve and go to every length to make sure your dinner is incredible! Then we clean up, kiss on the cheek - we're gone!

It's never been easier to throw a party!
