Nice to meat you.

The Place to Meat.

Meating is a restaurant located in the beautiful "Harbour road" waterfront development in Kleinmond overlooking the harbour. It has a mixture of mind blowing views of ocean, mountains and clouds and the picturesque street with a unique ambience.
Cooking with ingredients that travel from the wild corners of our South Africa to meet in your eyes and mouth.

At Meating we prepare popular but unique indigenous dishes inspired by our country’s beauty and by bringing together , food, TRAVEL and images (photography).

There's always a time to “meat”.

The name Meating's emphasis is on both to Meet (gathering) and to enjoy the best "meat" the country can offer. At Meating you can enjoy good quality specially sourced and transported by ourselves, mostly venison meat as well as some meat alternatives.

Meating's location makes it the ideal place to have a good hearty and unique indigenous meal with a perfectly paired wine, with stories that seem to be synced with ours by the winemakers. Read more about it in the brochures available from the waiters.
