Abalone House nets big fish Reuben Riffel


South Africa, Paternoster, June 2013; CELEBRATED chef and South African icon Reuben Riffel is to open a “Reuben’s” at Abalone House; Paternoster’s only 5 star boutique guesthouse.

Launching in time for the Cape’s summer season, the menu at Reuben’s Paternoster will offer a strong local West Coast theme.

Reuben Riffel is a South African household name thanks to his success in his Franschhoek and Robertson Small Hotel kitchens and more recently his venture at the celebrated One&Only Cape Town. Local television appearances and advertising endorsements, interviews on the Today Show and the Martha Stewart Show in the Unites States and the superb success of his two recipe books have all served to confirm what enthusiasts first proclaimed when Reuben first made his mark in Franschhoek back in the first years of the new millennium – this small town boy was destined for great things.

Earlier this year Abalone House announced the development of a Healing Earth Spa opening 1 September 2013, further entrenching this boutique guesthouse as ‘the’ address when touring the Cape West Coast.
