We were here for a wedding reception and the restaurant could not have done more to keep everyone happy. If you are looking for a place that covers all the bases then this is a great place as they have a chapel (very nice) and accommodation in the grounds as well. Serving 50 people simultaneously is tough on a good... More

Took our staff here for lunch and had a great time and an awesome meal. This was personally my 4th visit and never been dissapointed. Friendly and good service, great wine, beautiful setting and the best steak in the Winelands.

We had a family lunch at this restaurant. The service we received was very good and professional. The food was far above average and matched the wine list. Prices are on the steep side, but then you pay for quality. This restaurant is quite unique and a must visit.

Whenever we visit this restaurant, the food reminds us why this is one of THE best restaurants in South Africa. The management are always so friendly, and ready to oblige. On Monday night , our whole party of six had the rump steak as their mains. Each and every one of us raved about the flavor and tenderness of the... More

My father and I were taken here by a local friend and were not disappointed by his choice of restaurant in terms of the quality of the food, the service and the setting. Main courses included a superb grilled venison (on asking we were told it was kudu) and top notch steaks served with a good selection of seasonal vegetables.... More

Such nice food. Not the best setting, but the ambience is great. My third trip there. Great selection of wines, but the prices could be lower, especially on he Ken Forester wines. Service is good

Children are not welcome in this restaurant. Noise and laughter are not welcome in this restaurant. I know this because the manager Alan told me this. In front of my table of nine family and friends. - Food is fantastic. - Portions are balanced (by their richness). - Waiter attention is minimal. - Atmosphere is frosty. As for making their... More

After our travels this is always our go to place when we return home. I've been here countless times, the atmosphere is rustic and relaxed, the food and service is always top class - I suppose because I regard it as 'my regular' I've never reviewed it, so want to correct the omission. For my husband this restaurant is all... More
