This was the second time we had eaten here, this time being taken by friends as guests. Had I written a review after the first visit I would have mentioned firstly, that the calamari starter was incredibly small and secondly, that the wait before receiving even the starter was unacceptably long (almost an hour in a half full restaurant). Unfortunately,... More

We were greeted by a very unfriendly hostess. While we learnt at a later stage that they were under staffed i believe that it is instances such as these that show the true level of professionalism. At no stage did management 'jump in' to help but rather directed the 2 staff who were frantically running around servicing and doing champagne... More

Great location on a busy road between Somerset and Stellenbosch. The decor is quite eclectic and appealing and the atmosphere relaxed. Unfortunately the food didn't measure up to the same standard, as the dishes were relatively unsophisticated in the way they were cooked and lacked differentiation. The portions were almost too generous and lacking good presentation.

We stopped by Sage because we were craving their winelands burger (brie cheese, carmelized onions, yummy!) and it was a cold day so we wanted to go somewhere with a fireplace. I ordered the burger, and my husband ordered one of their great flatbreads - very big! We were pleasantly surprised by the addition of a wine seller (in the... More

We recently bought a Groupon special for 2 people for wine tasting, and a shared tasting menu platter. The food was excellent! There were 5 items on the platter - a duck springroll, grilled scallop, chicken skewer w/ asian noodles, tunisian pork, and pork cheeks. All the items were very tasty and beautifully presented. On the wine tasting, I'd recommend... More
