I had a wonderful dinner in this restaurant during my honeymoon with my husband. The staff was very nice and helpful and the atmosphere was very intimate. The wine list was very rich. As starter we had the grilled calamari (very tender and delicious) and my husband the west coast mussels (really yammy!). As main course my husband had the... More

Special restaurant with special food. Good portions, kind personnel and fascinating atmosphere. Great selection of wines. I would definitely go back and suggest it to anyone (try the ostrich fillet!)

Hey, no not a tourist trap at all but a rather cosy place with professional service, great food and a very good wine list. Can sometimes have some " stiff upper lip " guests, but who bothers when the service are by no means being impressed by these!

Advised to book and having done so, absolutely no regrets on any level. The food was beautiful, the service impeccable and the whole evening a delight. I wouldn't hesitate to go again, or indeed recommend others to do so. A must eat there experience.

Having arrived in Stellenbosch on Sunday afternoon, we struggled to find a place for dinner. We were directed here not by choice, but it turned out a fortuitous accident. The welcome was warm and the service attentive throughout the evening. We enjoyed drinks by the fireplace, nibbled on starters at our leisure before being guided to a lovely table in... More

Food was excellent. Cosy warm atmosphere with fireplace. Different rooms to choose were to eat inside restaurant. Service is excellent very friendly waiters. Private parking for customers. Risotto excellent. Cant wait to eat there again. Make sure to make booking on weakends. Pricey restuarant but worth the money.

First off, the setting is wonderful. A big old house converted to a charming restaurant with different rooms to eat in. We really enjoyed our meal. It may be pricey for South African standards but not for North American, not for what you get. Service is excellent too.

We had heard good things so were disappointed with the evening we had. From the attitude of the hostess when we arrived (despite making a booking), no atmosphere or music in the dining room to the service being very intermittent and slow.
