I think this place served the best meal I've ever had. You HAVE to do the meal with the wine pairing. And the view is like a picture!! Favorite place!!

Finished here as part of a wine tour and four of us went for a wine pairing. It was all really good from start to finish. Although the service turned out to be a bit slow the staff provided each couple a bottle of wine as way of apology. Nice touch, as to be honest, we had actually enjoyed the... More

There were four of us, and we tried to vary our choices from the four-course tasting menu. We all were extremely happy with all our choices. Everything was perfectly prepared -- and beautifully presented. Service was extremely well paced. We never felt rushed. Servers gave us time between courses, and we appreciated that. (And the dining room was absolutely full,... More

Such a delightful position on the terrace. And the food was equally appealing. Lovely lunch in every way. Book into the spa afterwards for a special treat.

With all round views over the vineyards and of the Jonkershoek mountain from any table in the restaurant and with some of the best wines in the area, this restaurant is worth a visit. The chef turns out wonderfully tasty meals ensuring that people will come back for more.

We went as a group of 4 and had one of the inside tables. Our waitress was very helpful in explaining the wine and food pairings, and impressively remembered our orders well enough to not have to ask who ordered what when the food came. The food was awesome! We all did the 4 course pairing menu (ZAR 400 each... More

We have visited this establishment many times and have even used it for very large groups. It is great fun to get a pairing menu with a glass of wine complimenting each dish. The nice thing is that the staff are open to changing this if you do not like a particular cultivar. They are flexible. As it is a... More

Service excellent, thank you Erica! Food outstanding and gorgeously presented. Lovely ambiance, and wonderful wine. This should be your go-to restaurant for all special occasions and when you need a treat. These people have a passion, and it shows in every detail.

I'm super chuffed to see that this stunning restaurant has such great reviews. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience last year and I've been dying to come back. It's great to go when the weather is bad too, because you can still appreciate the beautiful views. They also cater for gluten free people. Great service, good food and wine, and reasonably... More
