big easy winebar & grill

A PLACE TO BE AMONGST FRIENDS

BIG EASY WINEBAR & GRILL is an unpretentious Grill and Winebar hailing from the stunning Western Cape region of South Africa – inspired by the lifestyle and spirit of South Africa’s most recognized export, Golf-icon Ernie Els.

Fun and relaxed, it is at the same time the place to ‘hang out with the guys’ to a place to take your loved ones for a glass of wine and an unpretentious meal any day of the week. It is a culinary experience inspired by the cultural crossroads of South Africa’s, fresh off the grill comfort food combined with spices, herbs and ingredients from the melting pot of the world.

Our restaurants are a departure from the traditional description of ‘fine dining’ or ‘casual dining’ - today's guests are looking for great quality, executed perfectly in a casual setting. BIG EASY WINEBAR & GRILL is positioned above the typical ‘all day dining’, but is not a white-table cloth venue - It is fun, approachable, every day.

 

BIG EASY | INFORMAL

Casual and easygoing – it is a place to take the family, the loved ones or friends and business associate for an informal and fun experience.

BIG EASY | GESELLIG

An ingenious word that is truly missing from the English language: sociable with friends, amicable, affably companionable, friendly, convivial, cordial.

BIG EASY | EVERYDAY

BIG EASY is not a fine dining or "destination" restaurant, but a place for every day enjoyment – equally as much for a casual business dinner, a romantic dinner with the loved one or the entire family ...

BIG EASY | APPROACHABLE

BIG EASY has none of the formality or pricing that is often associated with fancy restaurants; it is fun and surprisingly affordable.

BIG EASY | SOUTH AFRICAN

: a melting pot of cultures, food and flavors. Fabulous steaks from the grill, bold flavors with fun menu choices

BIG EASY | YOUTHFUL

A warm restaurant featuring wood, brick, leather and other traditional elements can easily be perceived as old fashioned. But BIG EASY is very much today, timeless and full of vibe.

BIG EASY | BOLD

BIG EASY restaurants are bold, designed with a distinct residential feel, substantial furniture, warm and rich. The same spirit is reflected in the presentation and flavor of the food and many of our wines.

ERNIE ELS & BIG EASY WINEBAR & GRILL

Ernie Els is a Hall of Fame International golfer from South Africa, who continues to be one of the top-ranked professional players. His passion on the golf course is well documented; but his off course pursuits are garnering acclaim, starting with his award winning vineyard, course design firm and foundation work.

A truly global brand, his persona transcends just sport - as he is affectionately known as "The Big Easy", reflecting Ernie's manner; big in stature, gentle in character. His award winning winery in Stellenbosch and the Ernie Els and Big Easy wines were his first step in to the world of hospitality.

Big Easy Winebar & Grill is the next endevour and captures the same spirit: bold & prominent look and flavors, but at the same time a very gentle and amicable ambience that make the venues incredibly approachable and fun everyday destinations.

APPROACHABLE AND FUN EVERYDAY!

OUR APPROACH TO FOOD

The open kitchen tells the story. We don’t hide anything. What you see is what you expect. Our Big Easy Grill’s feature hand cut steaks off the grill to fresh caught line fish on the spit.

The menu is all about sophisticated comfort – everyday dishes prepared with farm-fresh ingrediences of the highest quality.

Our succulent steaks live side by side the Big Easy Signature Burger selection.

Some of our dishes proudly feature our South African Heritage - Bobotie Spring Rolls (sweet ground beef curry with chutney) or Boerewors (lean farmer sausage) take cues from the “home country” and keep it fun; all our restaurant feature a section with local favorites.

"The Best Burgers In Town"

"If there's anything we have to thank the Americans for it's the humble hamburger, which history tells us first appeared in the 19th century as an American meaty sandwich. Well, the burger has come a long way, it's crossed borders globally and has warped into one of the most loved gourmet food choices. We've rounded up some of the best burgers Durbs has to offer."
