I'm saddened to hear about the passing of the owner and what the restaurant is to become, however it was definitely a memorable moment dining here as it was one of the first meals I had after moving from Johannesburg to Cape Town. The atmosphere, service, quality of food and scenery combined so well to create an amazing dining experience.

First of all the setting is magnificent on the beautiful Uitsig Vineyards. Food good, wine very good. (Napoleone sent to find his wine near Uitsig to be brought to him on St Helena). Staff absolutely first class. There were a couple of folk in shorts and flip flops and they soon got "disappeared" so its a fairly formal, sort of... More

Liked very much the venue, excellent food with special wines. Bill was a bit on the high side but the smiles on the staff faces made up for this!

Our group of 17 had an outstanding experience in a private room of this restaurant set in a Cape Dutch house in a winery. We had chosen a set menu in advance. The food was outstanding. We elected wines from the estate which were first class. But it was the service which really set it apart. We were truly pampered.... More

The best meal we had while in Cape Town. The beef was so tender, you almost didn't need a knife. Their was homemade chocolate chip ice cream with fruit for dessert and it was fabulous. It is very quaint n located at a winery so their wine list is large too. Good service. Memorable meal.. Highly recommended.

What can I say: Outright wonderful food, great value for the money. Wonderful old house, relaxed atmosphere. If the weather is really bad outside, you may have the chance to meet... More
