We ate here and had a wonderful meal. We just got here in time before the kitchen closed (3PM). I would highly recommend this restaurant. I think it was one of the best we visited while in S Africa.

We thoroughly enjoyed our wine tasting at Chamonix. The Tasting Room is in the historic blacksmith shop, so very different to the majority of the other Tasting Rooms we visited. It was lovely sitting under the trees and as they were harvesting we were able...More

This is a very small place which offers limited wine tasting. I had the 'reserved' option which included 3 wines (2 chardonnay and 1 Pinkt noir) for R60, which were nice. Staff were friendly throughout. I would not recommend this venue for larger groups consisting...More
