Not sure if this is treating diners too causally after very good reviews or what? Yes, the views are great. The food and service, however, are very average - much better food available at several other Winelands restaurants. Very average "sirloin" (not many very thin pieces - this is more of a meat tasting) and duck that is far from... More

Food, wine and views. little Place in Heaven. My mom loved it and so did my daughter. The drive there is worth it and the Food is a must. One of the best in South Africa

We decided to take advantage of the winter lunch special - 3 courses for the price of 2. Delicious! And the most wonderful views down the valley. Make sure to leave enough time to visit a few wineries on you way up the road to Jordan.

Very nice setting but difficult to find at night. The set menu was very limited and very expensive although the options were all relatively ''cheap'' dishes such as hake and ravioli. The meals are also very skimpy but at least we had enough bread to fill up. Everything was really delicious and a lot of attention was given to detail.... More

My husband and I went there for our honeymoon in Han 2013, and til now we still talk about the mussels appetizer and soufflé dessert! Serious must-try's. The view is gorgeous too and do book early... We booked 2 days before and were lucky we could even get a seat (sadly not right next to the balcony)

I had only heard good things about the this restaurant so we decided to celebrate our Anniversary there yesterday. Let me start by saying that it is a beautiful place with very good service. However the food is a typical case of beautiful to look at, but lacking in flavor. The only dish that delivered on taste was the mussels... More

Enjoyed a lovely lunch here a while back, as friends of us got married here (they do not usually do weddings). Even though it was a rainy day; we thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon with loads of great canapes and wine, as the restaurant is set on a hill in the beautiful winelands.

Had a birthday lunch here. The setting is immaculate, and very peaceful. The food was sublime: interesting, tasty, and unique. For whatever it's worth, food that you just couldn't make yourself is always, at the least, worth a look. This is so much more: I have eaten at the Chef's previous restaurant, and was equally blown away. WIne was great,... More

While driving from Cape Town we stopped at Jordan, hoping to get a table. There is a small, casual deli spot here to get a sandwich and some superb wine. And there is a nicer patio on which one can spend a couple of hours eating fantastic food, drinking superb wine, and getting incredibly attentive service. For the patio, one... More

To be honest, I have commented after dining here before, but another life-changing experience later and I feel compelled to testify, again! I bear witness to the food, the food and nothing but the food. Exhibit1. A 3D edible portrait, depicting "Kuite" (aka fish roe) and smoked pork cheek on an island forest of nasturtiums and a trove hidden treasures... More
