Project Description

The Sidedish Theatre Bistro on the first floor of Theatre on the Bay, is managed by Dish Food and Social, who also run The Red Table Restaurant at Nederburg Wine Estate, the Racing Association’s The Paddock Room at Kenilworth Racecourse and the newest addition to their group of niche restaurants, The Polo Club on Val de Vei estate in Paarl.

Owner of Dish Food and Social, Andrea Foulkes, counts herself very lucky to be making her living while doing something she’s passionate about. Whereas many people work to live, she and her team cook because they love food, and they go to parties because they love people. The ‘food & social’ part of the company’s name is there for a reason!

Since starting in Andrea’s home kitchen during the course of 2002, Dish has cooked for some of South Africa’s best-known corporates, as well as many of Cape Town’s leading lights. From large events, such as the Nederburg Auction, Loerie Awards, Durban July, J&B Met and Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards, to catered home dinners or fairy tale weddings, Dish apply the same passion for food and attention to detail to everything they do.

Dish Food and Social also manage the bar and coffee bar at Theatre on the Bay, as well as the events held in the beautiful Bill Flynn VIP Room on the second floor overlooking the Twelve Apostles and the bay.  Dish also arrange the catering for all Pieter Toerien Productions presented at Artscape.

Make a night of it at Theatre on the Bay by enjoying a relaxed dinner before the show, with dessert at interval. To book the dinner/theatre package or to reserve a table in the restaurant, please contact our Box Office on 021 438 3300 | 021 438 3301, ext 1.
