We are not big wine drinkers but over the years, we have had several meals at 'The Goat Shed' and it never fails to impress. The service is always good, and the food is always impressive. The menu items suit the farm location & ambience perfectly, with plenty of hearty, home-style meals on offer. A delicious spread of cheeses and... More

We were meeting friends who live in Cape Town so decided on a restaurant that we both had to travel to. The tables and chairs are teak, but teak that have not been treated in a long while, and the wood looks dry. The tables, outside were well shaded but the chairs are not particularly comfortable and no cushions for... More

we had Sunday lunch at Fairview's restaurant 2 months ago. I forgot to review the place but the thought of that good food and great atmosphere brought back fond memories. We only have fond memories and would recommend Fairview quite easily.

Every time we come to the Cape we have to go to Fairview. I love it time and time again. Cheese, bread and wine is the death of me. Cannot get enough of this place. You can go for a wine tasting and pairing, food, fresh baked breads, cheese, and their gourmet products. LOve, lOVe, LoVe this place.

Packed to the brim and still happy with the food and service. Coffee is amazing aswell as the cheese platters always have a cheese platter when we visit. Best choice.

We visited Fairview on Easter Monday, despite having booked we were kept waiting while people who had not booked were seated at tables. The restaurant was very busy and service was slow, 25 minutes from ordering to being served a glass of water. The food was average although the two people in our party who ordered the special of the... More

Lovely place, the view is lovely. The menu caters for great surprises. The gorgeous cheeses and breads are lovely to buy and take home. The staff wonderful and the atmosphere peaceful. Wine, cheese and bread, and a wonderful menu with great staff makes for a great outing.

We visited Fairview deli in March for breakfast. The breakfast menu appears rather boring and not intising enough. But dont be fooled by a piece of paper. The food is absolutly amazing, very tasty, the presentation of the food is beautiful and appetising. We were a table of 20, no one waited for their food. Everything was prepared according to...

Super-friendly staff served us in a beautiful venue. We had the croissant with trout and scrambled eggs and the Pyttipanna (veal and potato breakfast dish). Both were great, and the coffee was excellent. We were far too full to go on to the cheese and wine tasting - but will definitely go back for that! We will make a point... More
