Updated : February 19, 2019 07:25 PM IST

It's a tiny beach restaurant in a South African fishing village and it won the 'Restaurant of the Year' award at the World Restaurant Awards.

'Wolfgat' was started two years ago by Chef Kobus Van Der Merwe, a former journalist.

Merwe converted a 130-year-old fisherman's beach cottage in paternoster into 'Wolfgat.'

Every day, Wolfgat's staff forages for ingredients on the wild Atlantic Shore of the Western Cape.

The restaurant seats only 20 diners at a time and its seven-course tasting menu costs around $60.

With dishes like twice-cooked Laver (seaweed), Angelfish with Bokkom Sambal and and Wild garlic masala, Limpets.

Wolfgat also won the prize for best 'off-map destination' restaurant.
