Outstanding

This restaurant may be in the middle of nowhere, but it is worth the journey. The setting is quaint and upmarket, with a very comprehensive menu and wine list. The food is extremely well presented and very tasty. Very, very impressive!

Took my 2 children there, unfortunately no under 12's allowed, which in a way is a good thing, considering kids will not enjoy the food, well my kids were blown away by the way the plates were decorated and the presentation of the food was out of this world, not to mention the taste. The chef sure knows what he... More

The pleasure of enjoying the venue, the absolutely sublime food and wine in an old world charm venue is all ours for the taking . The entire experience leaves you fully satisfied and wanting more each time. The special occasions such as the wine tastings in the barn and under the big beautiful tress leaves one feeling quite relaxed if... More

The food is absolutely delicious real value for money. For the service I really have to thank the lady. Had a fantastic evening. Maybe with the electricity surge something could be done?

We visited this little bistro in November 2014. The breakfasts were ample and delicious. We had a farmer's breakfast and french toast stack. The service was a bit slow, especially on the drinks. I had phoned ahead and booked but when we got there, there was no reserved table for us. Luckily we were early and could sit on the... More

Not the easiest place to find if you're not familiar with the area, but worth the effort. Reservations are clearly advisable, and we were lucky to get one of two available tables. We just wanted a light lunch, and so ordered three starters between two people - Peruvian scallops, salmon and tuna sushi, and duck and fig samosas. It is... More

A restaurant that can stand up and be measured with the best in South Africa . Not commercialized and still intimate in setting with the fantastic food speaking for itself. Great flavours and with fine dining presentations. A must visit when in Hartbeespoort.

I have some advise to the owners - the people complaining about babies in your restaurant or about not getting an outside table, please send them to the Spur. I really believe they will always complain regardless of the place. This is a great restaurant with one of the best wine lists I've seen. The food is brilliant and it... More
