Southern Sun Hotels has taken competition partnership to a complete different level, one we have not seen in South Africa before. The winner of the MasterChef SA reality show will become the biggest reality television prize winner in the history of South African television and will receive his or her very own restaurant!
The winner will receive the ‘right of use’ of the Southern Sun, MondoVino Restaurant
for a period of two years. The restaurant, located at the Piazza at Montecasino, is equipped to the value of R7million. Furthermore, the lucky winner will benefit from all profits made by the restaurant and will be further aided by Southern Sun as follows:
- three month practical “business training” in the areas of finance, human resources, restaurant management, etc.
- the official “breakfast supplier” to the SunSquare Hotel thereby guaranteeing a regular income
- rent free (estimated R2,4million over 2 years)
- naming rights to the restaurant and refurbishment to the value of R500 000.
Currently, the MondoVino Restaurant
is a contemporary culinary theatre with Italian flair, embracing the art of good food through Italian and local regional cuisine. The restaurant is vibrant and stylish with an informal sophistication that makes this the place to be on the Montecasino Piazza. The highlight of the restaurant is the outdoor terrace seating with a view of the piazza and the spectacular musical fountain show at night. MondoVino
is the perfect restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner with the perfect location close to the Teatro.
