Tucked away at the back of a small craft shop development, you open up into a restaurant with a delightful deck area with a lower garden with seating and farm animals. The menu has a good selection and reasonable prices, and we couldn't fault the quality of the meat. There was no craft beers available on my visit due to... More

The restaurant, bar is an experience! The gardens surrounding the restaurant are exquisite with it's little nooks and crannies where you think and feel you are in nature and can enjoy the good food.

The food is good. Service is so-so. Nice jumping castle and other playground stuff for smaller children. There are also some chickens and other small animals to amuse the little ones. Looks like they can cater for a variety of functions as well.

A quaint and cosy restaurant in the heart of Sundowner/Honeydew nestled behind a nursery in a little centre. Food is good.

We love the setting of this restaurant and it is ideal for bigger groups or if you have children. Sadly the attention to detail has got lost. We ordered steaks -one rare and one medium rare. Both arrived well done. The immediate reaction of the management is that they will redo the order. This in itself is annoying if you... More

We were meeting with friends of ours for dinner at this restaurant last Saturday evening. We arrived at 7pm and left at about 9h30. During that entire time we were the only patrons in the restaurant !! The food was not outstanding but good and obviously with the four of us being the only customers the service was good. Don't...

We recently had Sunday lunch at Olive n Twist. It was great to sit outside under the trees. Service was a little slow but good. There is quite a spread of food to eat and everyone had a good meal. Worth a visit

What a popular spot this is! It obviously has a loyal following of regulars who frequent the gardens and patio area for liquid refresment, and extensive pub grub fare. Pastas , pizzas, steaks, burgers and enormous chicken shnitzels are available. Service is attentive, though a little slow, but understandable owing to the number of enthusiastic patrons making demands on the... More
