Great chocolate, great food, great wine, great view, nice people! We ended up there because of a rainy day at Cape Town and it was a wonderful drive. It´s a kind of "all in one" place.

If you like chocolate, this place is a must. Chocolate tasting for virtually nothing. The chocolates were absolutely wonderful. Had to buy some to take back home and still found them delicious. Sadly all gone ! Definitely worth a visit!
