What a surprice. Arrangement was perfect, our host was professional and our waiter was superb. The food was well prepared, the chef balanced the texture and flavours to exact detail. Enjoyed our evening and without doubt one of Durbanvilles best kept secrets.

Really amazing, intuitive, attentive service from Charne at the wine tasting. Excellent food, service and wine. A really great way to laze about for lunch and wine tasting. Obviously the venue is also amazing. Well done Charne for making the time special.
