I found Cosecha on the net and thought it looked like a really nice place. I was even more pleased to see that they grew their own vegetables including peppers for the 'latin' cooking. We arrived early on a Sunday lunchtime without a reservation and were made very welcome and offered a choice of tables - we went for one in the sun on the lawn (unlike most South Africans my wife actually likes sitting in the sun!). The wind was a bit of a problem that day, but it was the same throughout the valley. The terrace looked very inviting with mainly tables and chairs under umbrellas, but some large sofas and low tables also. Despite the latin cooking, the menu appeared to be rather devoid of the chilli we love so much we made our choices. Our order of . prawn and mushroom quesadillas was met with a "How do you want those - mild, medium or spicy?" Naturally, we both went for the spicy option and were not disappointed with the size or the flavour and sharing gave us a chance to taste both. The Noble Hill sauvignon blanc (made on site) was a very pleasant way to wash it all down. Grilled calamari and goat cheese sweet potato cakes were excellent and spicy, and the grilled chicken tagliatelle with a creamy jalapeño reduction was also good but there was little sign of the tequila in the dishes title. All tables were full during the lunch and many diners had the guacamole prepared at the table. The portion looked enormous and is probably a meal in itself, although the availability of the sharing plates offers additional options. Service was friendly and knowledgeable and there was a very relaxed and unhurried feel to the place (including picnic tables by the lake). The different concept is to be applauded, especially as it works so well. We will certainly go again.
