Fixed menu Sunday lunches are not generally our thing, as they tend to become quite predictable and bland. The spread at the Spice Route though was really good, with some interesting twists to keep it interesting. Pork belly was really good, and everyone enjoyed the fresh salads and breads. On a lovely day, lunch with friends under the trees is... More

This is such a nice venue providing a great variety of local wines, craft beer and cuisine. The chocolate shop is an added bonus. It is immensely popular with both locals and tourists and hence gets extremely busy over weekends and holidays. We had a reservation at one of the restaurants but never managed to actually get a table due... More

Ate lunch on the Terrace with views towards Table Mountain in the distance. The pizza was good, with a nice thin base. The service was friendly and efficient. Even though there were many cars in the parking area, the whole set up felt quiet. A good place for young children to run around.

Lovely food, wine, service and views. Amazing late lunch which turned into sunset drinks. Great for families, children well cared for with a lovely menu, colouring in and cookie decorating.

Its a very nice location with breath taking views of the Cape. But the breakfast took the wind out of my sails. R99 for not even R10 products on a plate. Pathetic. Burned chutney croissant and eggs with a pork sausage. Every one on our table were very disappointed with this effort at breakfast. At least in a wimpy i... More

Visited on a lovely Saturday, sat outside. It was very busy, but the waiters were friendly and efficient. The pizza and salad was tasty and just the right size. Will visit again. Thank you.

Had a lovely meal here, food good, service also good. For wine tasting it was a much busier farm with lots of people and lots more to do such a chocolate, beer meat tasting etc so so that was great. Stunning setting with breathtaking views. Would I go back, yes!

We sat right on the edge of the outside restaurant area with magnificent views of the valley below and mountains beyond. Service was good and food and house wine good value for money. Would certainly like to visit again!

There are three restaurants, wine tasting, cured meats, chocolate and craft beer as well as Red Hot Glass and other curio shops all on site. Well maintained, well kep, beautiful setting and fairly well sign posted between attractions. We ate breakfast at the Bertus Basson Restaurant, the menu was quite ordinary and the food could have been prepared slightly better,... More

Chocolatery, coffee roasters, ice cream, burgers, pizza and more. Great stop for all and large grounds offer the opportunity to stretch your legs or devour your chocolate under a shady tree. The road leading there from the high way is tarred, so no need to worry.
