Friendly and reasonably attentive waitress. Hamburgers were very tasty and generously sized, but were a bit too overdone. Ordered as medium and were well done. Still good though. Pleasant spot and worth a visit.

We had an awesome brunch here - the food is outstanding, very generous portions and of a high standard. Certainly the best croque monsieur in the Cape. Service is great too. Plenty of activities on this estate for young and old.
