Third time here in as many years. Enjoyable, uncomplicated food, bistro-style. Little play area for (smaller) kids, which was a great relief to stressed-out parents who needed a quiet glass of fabulous wine. Small orchidarium in the back. Good fun, good food!

In a country renowned for fine wine and cuisine, Bread and Wine was one of the highlights of the trip. The truffle mash was superb and there are not enough superlatives to describe the spuma starter (if i remember the name correctly) The best starter we had ever eaten.. will definitely be back, one day!!

I have no real criticism of Bread and Wine. Perhaps I was was expecting more based on a recommendation. The food was good, in fact, my quail was excellent and my husband's springbok well prepared. The overall experience taking into account atmosphere, food and service was good but not stellar.

La Motte were fully booked and we decided to drive in at Moreson farm after a chef from Leopard creek revered us to Bread and wine, I suppose the name tells it all ,stick to wine and bread. The food is average and over priced. We order a rump medium done and ask the waiter if vegetables are included. On... More

We were perhaps expecting too much, as we had been told about this restaurant. The day we visited it was raining, so had to eat inside, and there was no atmosphere at all, only a butcher preparing a carcass in the far corner !!! We had the charcuterie board, which was dismal and not as we expected, then the pulled... More

I had read quite a few mixed reports on TA and so we weren't really sure what to expect. However, I have to say that this is one of the best meals we have ever had and my husband and I are serious foodies. The chef's approach is so interesting and different and tasty and delicious - one of the... More

Unusual and interesting menu choices. The food tasted superb. The tables are in a beautiful garden on a vineyard where you can also try a tasting. Will need to book
