What a splendid experience! The food was excellent, presentation as well as taste exceeded our high expectations. Service was very friendly, knowledgable and pleasant. Definitely one of the best meals we have had in Cape Town so far. Highly recommend the trout, pork belly and apple tart.

Service was polite, informed and attentive. The setting relaxed in spite of the fact everyone chose to dine inside due to the chill. Food was excellent. Prawn and ravioli starter was an interesting combination of flavours, the venison carpaccio blended texture as well as flavour. Pork belly was fluffy rather than chewy with perfect crackling. Lamb melted in the mouth... More

Loved this place. Great feel to it, good food and wine, lovely friendly service. We really liked that the menu was on a chalkboard- feels very fresh. Definitely come here on your trip to Stellenbosch

Disappointing due to the petulance of the head chef Michael who would appear to be trying to imitate Gordon Ramsey . The food was very good , well presented and reasonably priced. The setting lovely. However we were made to feel that he was doing us a favour cooking for us. We had come from Australia and his attitude was... More

The place is beautiful and romantic. The cooks are in shorts which is funny and I guess practical for them as their working area is hot. The garden is very nice and a beautiful tea setup is done for dinner. The food was excellent and the hour glass timer for the tea was a memorable touch. Nice with a hint... More

Nothing more to say - hand written menu on transportable chalk-boards, perfect staff, very good food (also very good presentation), very good wines,.... Everytime worth a vist!

The service, the food, the ambience, the wine list - all of these things were excellent. It was definitely one of the best meals we have had in the Western Cape for a long time. Slightly on the pricey side but well worth every cent.

This is not a fine-dining restaurant but a more casual spot nestled in a vineyard, with great outdoor seating. The service is very good, attentive and friendly. There is plenty of choice on the menu without it being overly extensive and the wine selections are great. This is justifiably recommended by many travel writers and is well worth the trip... More

A real treat in the Cape wine lands. As always great, service, taste, great wine list , even drinkable wine by glas from Kleine Zalze wines.... Super friendly service guides you in a modern style through the menue. There is absolute nothing to complain about. We come back!

We ate here as we were only staying 5 minutes drive away and it had just re-entered the Eat Out Top 10. The food was excellent but I wouldn't call it fine dining, but excellent bistro food. The service was top notch, from splitting the starters we shared into 2 separate plates, to helping us choose the wine. For starters... More
