Out first visit to the restaurant which is set in a beautiful location. We enjoyed both the chocolate and wine tasting before lunch. We had to wait 1 hour for our table and further disappointed to wait another 1 hour for our food. The menu is pretty basic selection of burgers however to wait this long was a let down.... More

I visited the farm about 5times over spring and summer and the experience is always pleasant. Wine/beer in hand with a fantastic panoramic view, who can fault that. But the experience is spoiled by not bad but lack of service. The size of the establishment is just to big, you will not have a bad time but again if your... More

A special place to take visitors, meet friends or just hang out. There's something for everyone to enjoy and that's what makes it so different and worthwhile a visit. Start with CBC craft beer tasting, followed with de Villiers artisan chocolate tasting. Check out the gourmet ice cream stand and quaint little art gallery. The two restaurants offer completely different... More

We went with family on a public holiday and had brunch/lunch at Barley and Biltong for amazing burgers and a stunning view over the valley. The service was good, the portions nice and hefty although pricewise slightly on the steep side. Note it got busy very early on so I would recommend booking. One note, dissapointingly they didn't have any... More

on a recent visit from London, my daughter, granddaughter and I, drove out to Spice Route Bertus Basson restaurant for breakfast. Although just half an hour from the city I'd never been there and the breakfast had been recommended specifically for one dish a friend had eaten there. Unfortunately that dish was no longer on the menu. I had scrambled... More

We were a group of 8 people. Food was good, Service was prompt and waiters took care of us. Definitely worth a visit. Lots of little attractions. Well thought and conceptualized.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Spice Route (please read my other review). I do however have one big gripe. All restaurants require a reservations in advance. We arrived on Sunday and there were tons of open tables yet they wouldn't seat us at any of the restaurant's. We told they people were expected in the next 45 to... More

Visiting this place was an interesting experience because it has a beer brewery, the place that sells dry meats and sausages, chocolate, pizza, wine tasting, etc. I was quite impressed with the CBC beer brewery as they make real German beer (the recipes, technology, etc. is German). I besides checking that place, I also tried different types of beer, and,... More

The wind was blowing so we thought that it wasn't going to be a pleasant experience but WOW. The service was great and the pizza's were divine. I am not normally a pizza eater and I finished my entire pizza. From the thin base to the tasty toppings the entire meal was awesome. A must do.
