A friend an di were in Robertson for the weekend. This wine farm is one of few that is open on a Sunday! We found the service to be excellent. A long history which we found quite interesting. would recommend. we sat on the deck and had our tasting followed by a cheese platter....which was superb!

We visited this restaurant on a Monday for lunch. It was a glorious day and we really wanted to sit outside in the winter sun. We thought we had found a table that suited us, only to be told very bossily that "those table are for the picnics". It wasn't as if the table was miles away from the restaurant,... More

As tourists visiting the area, we decided to stop to take a look. After a wonder around the pleasant gardens we found the bistro and asked a waitress if we could sit for coffee. She replied we could and so our party of 6 took a seat. Within minutes the manageress approached and asked us if we had a reservation.... More

We turned up at 3pm on a Sunday expecting to be turned away as the restaurant was so busy, but we were warmly welcomed and sat down in the garden for a late lunch. We enjoyed a great bottle of wine (at cellar prices!) had a fantastic tasting home made beefburger and a deadly chocolate brownie with coffee. Would happily... More

This restaurant is always busy and it is imperative to make a booking to avoid disappointment. The new owners have kept the good quality of the meals and the staff are well trained. Front of house keeps an eagle eye and ensures that everything runs smoothly. Once they have settled in, I'm sure they will be smiling too.

My husband and I had a lovely romantic lunch. Seated right by their wood burning fireplace (it was a cold day), with beautiful views of their fabulous garden, we had excellent, friendly service, delicious food of generous portions and great coffee. Wonderful atmosphere, stunning decor, friendly and gracious service.
