What a wonderful place. Understated but elegant. Staff are amazing, from your first interaction with the guard at the entrance the staff are all friendly and professional. Lunch was divine. My husband and I shared a starter - chicken livers and then shared a ceasar salad. Not a problem - the salad was served on 2 plates and was divine.... More

Great restaurant (nice setting/views and seating inside) with good food, but not sure it warrants the five stars other travellers seem to have awarded it. I am pleased I went, but can't say I will be falling over myself to go back.

Had to sit inside as it was cold and wet but the atmosphere was wonderful, the service absolutely excellent and the food mind blowing. This restaurant must be visited at least once in your life. The attention to detail was incredible. I cannot fault it.

The restaurant completely exceeded my expectations! The attention to detail of the food, lighting, furniture, ambiance, the list goes on, was fantastic. There are but a handful of restaurants in SA that can compare to this level of perfection and detail. The waiters were incredibly attentive without being overbearing, and they were very knowledgeable. The ambiance was very cozy and... More

This is the best combination of location, style, elegance and food of the highest standard. Waiting staff who are exited to make the dining experience wonderful, each plate is prepared with care and attention to the finest detail.

The landscaped gardens with their modern statues were beautiful, the interior design very special and over the top. The large artworks stunning. We enjoyed a leisurely Sunday lunch outside on the terrace with incredible mountain views. Comfy seating always helps. The starters were excellent, the main courses good but not as impressive and the desserts delicious - hard to choose.... More

Sometimes wine estate restaurants don't fill the bill rather are a convenience to the wine experience, but this place could well be the destination itself. Everything was delightfully fresh, perfectly prepared and served with flair. Go!

Set in the picturesque Helshoogte Pass overlooking the mountains and exquisite scenery this restaurant elicits the wow factor even before one gets to read the menu. The food fare just about matches the Swiss mountain like setting of this venue. I ordered the chef's special for the day-roast duck on a bed of butternut, pickled cabbage, soy sauce and lentils....
