We stopped for a late lunch of pizza. Unfortunately there was a Table of very noisy children running around and screaming, even though there was a playground.

You can see the motor way from the restaurant and there was a peculiar smell. We sat outside. The salads were good but we forgot to ask for dressing on the side so the salad was swimming in the dressing.

The service was absolutely terrible. No waiters, I had to walk up and down to the bar myself. No guidance about the tasting. Worst tasting experience ever

On our way to Stellenbosch, we stopped here for lunch. That was a fantastic idea. A nice choice of food, all very good, service super and last but not least the wines.... so people, yes a place to stop to eat.

Yes, probably not the best location for a restaurant in the winelands but a pleasant experience nonetheless. Service was very friendly and efficient and we have no complaints about the food. A very nice safe play area for the kids which you can watch from the restaurant. And the wine was good 😊
