What a lovely wine estate, full of history, great wine and in lovely surroundings. Water trickling from the fountains, beautiful white roses and a lovely terrace to enjoy lunch. We chose Spring Rolls and Spicey Calamari for starters - the taste explodes in your mouth, absolutely super, Butter Chicken and Kingklip for mains - we couldn't get over the wonderful... More

We had a lovely family lunch - the setting is absolutely beautiful and the food was delicious. Definitely order the bobotie. The service was a bit lacking - we had to ask for the cushions for the outdoor chairs and more than once had to call the server over when it shouldn't have been necessary. Slightly sharper, friendlier service would... More

We visited the restaurant as walk ins after a wine tasting. During the tasting we tried the 2017 rose and wanted to share a bottle. When the rose arrived, it was different one, from 2016. However, the barman arranged the wine we wanted, despite it not actually being available. Food was great, large tasty portions and service excellent too. Will... More

On arrival we were the only people in the restaurant, and there were a lot of flies around the table. We ordered a bottle of Merlot and when it arrived it was chilled. We asked if the red wine was normally chilled and we got a one word answer, "No", but no further explanation. The waitress took it away and... More

When I wrote my review in March I was so dissappointed that I was sure not to visit the restaurant more this Year. However, as we really love the surroundings we decided for another visit. I am Happy to say it was far better than last time. Kingklip was ok, but the trio desert was worth the visit alone. Sorry,... More

Dear Sturle2, I am delighted that you paid us another visit, thank you, and that your time spent with us was an improvement on last time. There are most certainly worse ways to spend a summer afternoon than on our front stoep, or seated under the oaks, enjoying a meal and a glass of wine. We look forward to seeing... More
