FINE DINING IN THE COUNTRY

It appeals to families, ladies who lunch and couples. The only downside is that at busy times, say Sunday... read more

Our food was perfectly satisfactory and , although the night was very hot , we would have had a fine evening if the service was not so very intrusive . I rather think that the 10% charge drove our waiter to think of as many ways as possible to influence us to rack up the bill . It left a... More

You can not go wrong with dining here. The service is of the best in Cape Town, with just the right amount of interaction. We were going for a light dinner, but opted for the tasting menu with wine pairing.The food was absolutely amazing and we really appreciated how accommodating they were. I would gladly return to this restaurant.

This was one of our best dining experiences in Cape Town this year. By far the best service we received anywhere - absolutely perfect level of knowledge and interaction - friendly and charming, we had a great time. The initial table given to us inside the barn was a bit dark and warm so we asked if we could go... More

We sat upstairs for the first time, after having been here a few times. It's not nearly as noisy and the large sash window allows for a welcome, cool breeze. Our waitress, Nicole, was knowledgeable about what was on offer on the menu and was extremely efficient throughout the evening. The food was outstanding: starters of salmon, fish tartare and...

Have been here vsevral times but I am finding the menu rather ripetitive. The service is OK, the food is good, the ambient not the most plush and the prices are rather high. Convenient if you are coming over chapmans for a day drice. Local food market available nearby
