We have had the privilege of eating here a few times now, one of which was our wedding. This is truly a hidden GEM in Cape Town, would highly highly recommend taking the time to explore Knorhoek, Towerbosch restaurant, Guesthouse and it's fine fine wines!

A surprise little find, having had a morning out the kids were a little hungry so instead of taking the road to Muratie thought we would try out Knorhoek. Even though time was ticking on and they seemed full, we were still accommodated. They did...More
