We wearily stumbled off the N2 into De Doornkraal in Riversdale and were charmed by the warm light friendliness of the staff. What we did not expect was the scrumptious meal at their restaurant, De Wingerdt. Superb. Exquisite presentation to match the burst of flavours and fine tastes. What a find! Highly recommend this gorgeous place tucked between the mountain... More

Fresh, local and organic ingredients come together with their own wine pairing (and their own wine) makes De Wingerdt one of... More

The bobotie spring rolls were a fresh and very tasty take on a traditional dish - I had the starter as a main. The seared Aan't Vette Norwegian salmon was cooked to perfection - pink and juicy.

Great food, great service. Menu is interesting and the starters are delightful. Not sure how they can serve such good food in the middle of nowhere.

Try the Steak or the stuffed chicken breast. You will not regret it, and will ask to pay more for it!

It's like an oasis of food for weary travellers. Chef Peppas' food is some of the best I have tasted. Go for the lamb dishes and Chicken Malay curry. Great service is the cherry on top.

Several dozen of us gathered for a two conference. Food and service could not be topped anywhere in the world. Meeting facilities were perfect. I'll head to Riversdale, for sure, the next time I'm in Cape Town.
