I'm sure we've all heard the by-line among those customers that swear there's nothing to touch British Airways in this part of the world, that the abbreviated version actually means "bloody agreeable".

I was on my way to Cape Town the other day, when I bumped into a few old pals who were about to depart on a BA flight, in the

lift. They mentioned that they'd just picked up in the Business Class lounge on BA's selection of South Africa's Top Five restaurants. These are them, apparently in no particular order:

The Test Kitchen, Cape Town
 - Chef Luke Dale-Roberts

An eclectic establishment with a contemporary approach that is producing the most exciting cuisine in South Africa.

DW Eleven-13, Johannesburg
Chef Marthinus Ferreira

This is the most sophisticated place in Johannesburg. Don't overlook their gutsy signature dish - a slow-roast farm chicken with pomme purée.

Hartford House, KwaZulu-Natal
Chef Jackie Cameron

Located in an historic mansion at South Africa's most famous stud farm, diners sit around the original dining table and eat tartare of ostrich or poached quail. Among the top three faraway eateries in the world.

Tasting Room, Le Quartier Français, Franschhoek
Chef Margot Janse

The most stylish restaurant in Africa? Diners choose between a couple of eight-course tasting menus which feature the very best local ingredients presented in a playful manner.

Jordan, Stellenbosch
Chef George Jardine

Located on a wine estate. Straightforward authentic cuisine, with the best cheese selection in the country.

Enough said.
