Welcome to Séjour.

séjour /seʒuʀ/ say.zhoor French, (n) Stay

Welcome to Séjour… a modern fine-dining restaurant located within the luxurious Houghton Hotel in the heart of leafy Houghton Estate.

Chef Freddie Dias, who has cooked in top kitchens the world over, brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the kitchen. Driven by his natural curiosity and eagerness to always learn more, the acclaimed chef draws influences from all aspects of his life whether it be his upbringing, travels abroad or his many years in service.

As such his menu is a delectable amalgamation of all that is learnt from a life spent travelling, exploring and asking questions combined with a love of food and a finesse for storytelling.

Innovative tastes from around the world, with no two dishes alike. The perfect place to share food and laughter with your closest people. Experiences at Séjour, they stay with you.

Enjoy your stay

Bon Séjour

“Regretfully, Séjour cannot accommodate children under the age of 12. Thank you for your understanding.”
“We also are unable to permit corkage (BYOB) in any of the outlets, thus no external alcohol may be brought in”



“I want my food to tell a story – yes it’s about feeding people but it’s more than that it’s about telling stories, evoking curiosity and creating conversation around a table. I love that food can do that.”

Only available in the private rooms

  • We went for our anniversary dinner. Service really good – all staff very knowledge about the food. Food was amazing and we’ll definitely be back. It’s difficult to name a standout dish as they were all brilliant. The line fish was great and the shortrib with black garlic was scrumptious. The milk stout dessert was incredible. Honestly can’t think of any constructive criticism.
