As ever, a very good venue with lovely views. Smallish lunch menu, particularly enjoyed the stir fry beef. The wine tasting was excellent, which we did in tandem with our lunch.

Shared platter of snacks after wine tasting. Was charged R100! couldn't believe it for two mush balls, one spring roll, a few olives, couple of corn chips and a few slivers of biltong. Couldn't afford any more so went away hungry.
