Being on a Thursday, and in the middle of winter, the restaurant was not full and we had two waiters at the ready at all times. Both of them, constantly topped up our glasses, and perhaps that is the one thing the management... More

My wife and I arrived at the estate for breakfast. At the entrance the staff was nowhere to be seen, although we did see waiters walking around after we arrived, no one greeted us, leaving us to stand for almost 5 minutes.

We arrived to a very friendly welcome by our waiter Allen who promptly provided us a seat next to the fireplace. Both breakfast meals were excellent (The A.V is highly highly recommended) and the chef took the time to chat with us. All round excellent experience!!

A business breakfast where the food was the star performer. Good food, lovingly prepared, beautifully presented by happy staff. The owners Mel and Zunia are involved, present and real foodies. Drop this all onto a beautiful wine farm with magnificent horses and views to dream of. What more can one ask for?
