A birthday treat

We had dinner here on my birthday which was a lovely treat. It was a return visit so we knew the type of food served and it didn't disappoint. The standard of food, wine and service has remained very high, and of course the views from the terrace are stunning.

We had expected rather more of this restaurant, as it is always crowded and booking is advised. The calamari starter we shared was excellent. My Lamb Shank was tasty, but only lukewarm and Irene's prawns were ok, but nothing special. The waiter was attentive enough, so perhaps we were just unlucky.

We had dinner here on a very busy evening. The staff were great at keeping us informed and we felt looked after even though our food took a while to arrive. The food was great - I can recommend the risotto - and the Chenin Blanc was lovely. We had a super-relaxed evening.

The restaurant is in a beautiful old house. The food was good. The atmosphere is fine and they do offer a parking area, which is a plus in Stellenbosch.

What I enjoyed about this restaurant is the understated feel when I expected a fancy experience. The meal, service, ambiance and value all contributed to create an extremely enjoyable dinner. Well worth it.

Excellent service and amazing wine list. We had steak, veg and wine and were blown away on how lean the mean was. Our server was in her mid 20's and was well educated on wine and gave us a perfect recommendation.
