You want peace? You want quiet? You want some time out? The Pear Tree cottage at La Petite Ferme is what you need. At the end of a winding, switchback track, surrounded by vines, the cottage will provide a lot of privacy and a little bit of luxury. We stayed in early March and it matched, if not exceeded, our...

The food here is very good, but dinner is only served on Fridays - lunch daily. My husband & I stayed Friday and Saturday and enjoyed it very much. Friday was a lovely evening with a live group playing in the garden in front of the restaurant. However, as my husband is disabled, the facilities where not really ideal for... More

We came here for lunch after a friend recommended it and we were not disappointed. The food is some of the best we have eaten so far in SA, fair prices and the view - wow! It is a huge restaurant with lots of different seating areas. Thankfully my request for a Veranda table with a view down the valley... More

Very nice food and wine in an idyllic location. We had lunch on the 4th of March 2015; the four of us had different dishes and puddings and all of them were full of quality tasty food. I went for the 'curried deboned chicken thigh' followed by the 'babana tart tatin' and it was delicious. Very good value for money... More

Friday night dinner and music on the lawn, a fabulous room with an unbelievable view and private pool, breakfast was great and staff wonderful....what's not to like! Spent 3 nights while cycling around the vineyards and especially loved their Bamboo Rock, a wonderful unwooded chardonnay in their cozy bar. Wifi (free) spotty in our room, but sitting on the steps... More

This place is in a great spot with stunning views. On a Friday night they have a good jazz band that plays when the sun retreats. It is highly regarded, we booked a month ahead and got the last table. Good food and service.

The views are spectacular from the Manor House suites and the restaurant. The rooms are immaculate, their staff engaging and the food sublime. It all comes at a price, of course. The summer concerts on the lawn outside the restaurant are a real treat. I recommend their Rose and Shiraz - yum!

Today was our second visit to this stunning restaurant. It's one of our favourite places to eat in the world. We weren't disappointed. The food, the wine, the service and the views are stunning. Do yourself a massive favour and try it. I promise you won't regret it. There isn't a bad thing on the menu. The smoked trout and... More

We went for lunch today. The food was delicious . The surrounding area was very beautiful.the staff were very helpful when we went to buy some wine to take with us. The only disappointment was that we sat indoors rather than the conservatory .

Stayed in the cottages located in the middle of the vignards with a lovely terrace and a private pool overlooking the valley. Just stunning! We cottages are very well equipped and very nice. It was wonderful! We will be back for sure! A lovely place to stay.
