We went with friends and the restaurant was fairly busy. No ambience or atmosphere. The manager did nott go around to check if all ok.....service was average and the food was also very average. No reason to go back. Quite disappointing.

Enjoy fabulous country cuisine inspired by the freshest seasonal produce from our organic herb and vegetable garden. Culinary and sommelier consultancy team Somm and chef Maritz Jacobs work closely together to create a journey through each season with menus changing regularly to fully include the freshest ingredients. Each master piece can be perfectly paired with elegant wines from the Longridge cellar. The relaxed and informal atmosphere is the perfect showcase for the incredible panoramic views sweeping over False Bay with glorious sunsets over Table Mountain and roaring fire place in winter.
