Welcome to Schneider's Cape Floral Kitchen

I contemplated a lot about my own style. As chefs, we have seen many types in all kitchens worldwide like traditional cooking, nouvelle cuisine, molecular style, farm to table, local is lekker, nature kitchen… And some have a more significant influence on us than others.

After 50 years of cooking,
I feel I have come to the point of knowing exactly what I want to bring to people’s palates.

For 40 years, I have been an avid forager, and food from nature is the most inspiring topic for me. Here at the Western Cape in the heart of the Floral Kingdom, the varieties of plants that are growing right in front of our doorstep are unique: Dune Spinach, Wild Sage, Cancer Bush, Buchu, Geranium, Confetti Bush, Sea Weed, Bitter Bush, and lots more…

Amazing Landscape

The Cape Floral Kingdom is globally known for its unique vegetation, and the views from Schneider’s over the Walker Bay are simply breathtaking.

Exceptional Menu

With Schneider’s, Jurgen and his team brought food from the Cape of Africa to a new level. From the ingredients to the preparation, you will experience something extraordinary.

A Dedicated Team

Not only Jurgen and Susanne but the whole team at Schneider’s lives and breathes the philosophy of the Cape Floral Kitchen. The personal service will make you feel comfortable from the first moment.

Some words about your hosts

For 40 years, we have worked as a couple in different restaurants and hotels, nationally and internationally. We opened many hotels and restaurants and believe that Schneider’s will be our last one…

Hospitality is our life and even on our off days we usually have friends as guests at our home in De Kelders. Jurgen got a Michelin Star for over two decades. He worked worldwide in different restaurants and hotels like Kempinski Berlin, Kempinski Gravenbruch, Kempinski München, Intercontinental Hannover, Princess Hotel Bermudas, Castel Royal in Spain, Sporthotel Achental, Gutshaus Stolpe, self-employed in Wetzlar at Tapferes Schneiderlein, in Schriesheim with the Strahlenberger Hof.

Susanne met Jurgen when she started her diploma in cooking after her Hospitality Management exam. For many years she joined Jurgen in different hotels and restaurants as manager, director, or “Busy Lizzy”.

If you ask Susanne about her job title, she would say: “Disaster Manager Around The Clock”.

Susanne is also a holder of the WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) diploma and co-owns a Company in Germany which is the biggest importer of SA Gins in Germany: Südafrika-Genuss.

Besides that, she hosts at her B&B ‘The Whale and Gin Spotter‘ in De Kelders.
