About Origins @ Marine
Origins have crafted a menu that offers relaxed social dining in the comfortable surrounds of a modern kitchen-focused restaurant. Whether it is tapas, natural wines and craft beer or a full sit-down dining experience you're after, you'll find it at Origins.
At Origins Small Plates pays tribute to the social act of sharing. Shoots, Stems & Leaves takes inspiration from the earth; local, seasonal produce delivered as complex, delicious salads. Our mains and sides are Hunted and Gathered; each ingredient reflecting our surroundings. Desserts with local flavour bring The Sweetness, and artisanal Cheeses of the Region round out the menu.
Our ‘Chef's Blackboard' will introduce at least 3 new daily dishes to reflect the season, and allow us to champion the exciting fresh produce we find.
Never fails to please with fabulous food and service
We had a fabulous evening again at Origins and our waitron Antoinette, gave us such a warm welcome back to the restaurant. The only reason I am scoring the atmosphere 4 stars, is the restaurant was very empty as the season has ended. A wonderful evening all around.
restaurant was too noisy and they did not serve proper was was been asked.
Service is excellent and staff are well trained, professional and attentive. Quality of food is good but not exceptional. Overall dining experience was mediocre and not aligned to the priced charged. My comparison is The Greenhouse Restaurant at the Hotel Hohenhort which is part of the same group of hotels.
Great food, limited wine choice, but great service in a beautiful setting
Great birthday celebration
Very good selection of vegetarian options. Beautiful balance of flavours and attention to detail, friendly efficient service. Just a pity we did were rather pushed for time and didn't have time to savour our lunch.
I'm afraid two things adversely affected our dining experience. Firstly, overly loud customers who were of the view that we should share their conversations and secondly a truly awful choice of back ground music. If you have to have back ground music (in Liz McGrath's day you didn't !) at least make it vaguely chordant.The parking attendant was very helpful indeed on a busy evening.
Fantastic food, Great service Wow !!! 😊😊😊😊😊
The restaurant felt over crowded, not with diners, but with staff. With five waiters serving us, my order arrived at my table incorrect. I’d love to recommend this establishment, but there are many restaurants in our area that simply does it better.
We decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Origins after hearing good reviews. We were not disappointed. Our host Sam and waitron Antoinette were friendly, efficient and well trained. We enjoyed the springbok tataki for starters, kudu loin and line fish for main. They were beautifully presented and delicious, sincere thanks to the chef. Sam surprised us with a friandise platter at the end of the evening. We had very enjoyable anniversary dinner. xxxxx
Posted to Tripadvisor A lesson: do not judge a reataurant on one bad experience! In the past two weeks I have learned a very valuable lesson: do not judge a restaurant on one, even two bad experiences. Last week I had one of the best bowls of grilled Squid ever at a restaurant a friend of mine refuses to frequent because of something he did not like on a visit 2 years ago. The 14th January is our wedding anniversary. The 14th being a Monday posed a problem...many of the restaurants of note are closed! Against my judgement, but remembering the lesson I learned the previous week I reserved a table at Origens. What a good decision! The Personel so friendly and helpful. Our starters-a Tuna "salad" and the Bouiabaise delicious. The mains- Prawns tempura with rather chilli noodles excellent. The only problem I have, as with many resaturants in the Walker Bay area is the absolute exhorbitant wine prices eg a bottle of Raka Biography selling for R120 in a wine shop, being sold for R350! However, a wonderful experience on a very special day in our lives
Service was faultless
We had an awesome lunch once again! Thank you!
Great evening. 1st class service.
Thank you to Origins and Tronelle for a fabulous prize evening! It was a true treat!! We have been raving about the food to all our friends... wonderful mixes of flavour and textures and delightfully presented...my foodie son had no complaints! The staff were all very friendly yet professional and the venue very chic but comfortable. Thank you!
This is an excellent restaurant preparing interesting and well thought out meals. The wine list is a little expensive due to the considerable mark up on some wines, but the choice is good. Service was generally attentive and competent.
It was an experience out of this world one I will cherish for ever. From start to finish everything was just perfect 5 star service. Thank you.
Beautiful singing by the staff. Food good.
On my way back home in the car I had a phone call from the Marine accusing me of having short paid my bill by R100.00.That was not true. I never expected an insult like that from the Marine.
Great location. Good service.
Enjoyed two dinners at Origins. Excellent menu, food beautifully prepared and presented. Mussel starter and tempura prawns for main both particularly good. Lovely restaurant with good service. Would recommend, we certainly hope to return.
Very enjoyable. Nice atmosphere & food & service top notch.
More options for wine by the glass. The food was excellent and your staff works hard! Your bookings are spaced well apart, presumably to allow your chefs adequate time per table, but this means the early eaters are pretty lonely! Service was very friendly and good but the coffee took a long time to come. Overall, an excellent evening. Thank you.
