My family had been staying in Plett for the week. I travelled up on the Thursday afternoon from Cape Town arriving at 8.15 pm.

In a world of fast food and slow service, it is a pleasure to find the art of fine dining alive and well. Beautifully decorated, very comfortable (there is actually space between the tables) matched by warm and friendly service. We had the organic fillet and it was excellent. The one (disappointing) surprise was to be offered Hake as the... More

I would have liked to give this restaurant at least a 4 but the family was in agreement that the service and experience was of such nature that a 3 needs to be given. The food was a definite 5. Good portions and very tasty and the chef did justice to present us with fantastic food. Now for the 3... More

The restaurant is set in the most beautiful location. Sitting outside we really enjoyed the small pond, green trees, birds and we also saw a small antelope. Very relaxing. The menu is clear and the wine list extensive but there were a few items unavailable under the mains that was a little disappointing. The food that we ordered was very... More

Although this is a very nice looking restaurant walking distance from Tsala Treetop lodge where we stayed, it is not quite up to the high standards it sets itself.
