My husband and I were looking for a lazy Friday afternoon restaurant and as we have stayed at Lanzerac before we thought we'd take a trip down memory lane, after all it is 5 stars. We sat in the courtyard of the Terrace Restaurant and it is a magnificent setting, well kept gardens etc. The staff were OK although we had three different people tending to us. I orderdered the chicken roulade which ended up being a dry baby chicken breast on top of some aubergine and a raw pastry-ish thing (I have no idea what it was) and what seemed a teaspoon of an olive tapenade on top. My husband ordered the linefish of the day, Kingklip and mash but this was the size of the palm of my hand and drenched in a cheese sauce. presentation was poor and I believe my chicken was warmed up in a microwave as the one corner of the chicken was rock hard. I sent mine back and it was still on the bill! I complained and many apoligies were given that she forgot to tell the cashier to remove it. Very very disappointing indeed.
