The story

A small beachside South African restaurant specialising in local seafood has won the top prize at the inaugural World Restaurant Awards in Paris. Wolfgat, whose six staff have no formal training, opened two years ago in a cottage and cave on the remote beach at Paternoster. Its sixty-dollar tasting menu is a fraction of what prestigious Parisian restaurants charge.
